The 2020-2021 school year definitely brought the importance of technology and digital learning into the forefront. Teachers and students had to adjust quickly and as seamlessly at possible. Digital Morning Meeting was the perfect way to make this adjustment in my classroom and will continue to be something that will work well during a “normal” school year.
What is a digital morning meeting?
The focus of a morning meeting is to help build classroom community and provide a safe environment for students to feel heard and supported. Digital morning meetings serve the same purpose, except with the use of technology. These can be projected on a screen for your students as they sit on the carpet together or in their own seats. I go through each of the daily sections as we discuss the items together. (Welcome song, discussion questions, phonics, math, word of the day, physical activity, etc.) The entire meeting takes about 15-20 minutes, but can definitely be adjusted for days when we are short on time.
What is included in the Digital Morning Meeting?
This Digital Morning Meeting is the perfect way to start the day whether you are in the classroom or still teaching virtually. This includes 11 months of daily morning meetings. Each monthly download includes 4 weeks of daily Morning Meeting activities.
What are teachers saying about Digital Morning Meetings?
“I LOVE this resource! I have used this both with my distance learning students and my in person students and it is extremely engaging and low stress. My kids love the songs and I love all of the different components. I am never able to get to all of the components but I love having all of the options. It keeps it fresh and exciting for my students.” -Deandra
“This resource is INCREDIBLE! I have used it in-person with my class since September. We went remote right before Thanksgiving and the transition for Morning Meeting was seamless. The kids are super engaged. The “Question of the Day” is our favorite! Best.Purchase.Ever!!! :)” -Jennifer
“This resource is a game changer during hybrid teaching! My students love every facet especially the movement and the word of the day! I have both at home students and in school students use the word of the day in a sentence then seesaw it to me so both myself and parents can see how they are doing! Also great vocabulary building activity! I can’t say enough about it! Thank you!!!” -Margaret
