Many of us who teach in elementary school begin our day with something called a Morning Meeting. (As many of you already know.) This is a great way to build community in the classroom, and get to know the children better. We always begin Morning Meeting with a friendly greeting to one another, and then we do some telling sharing. This is the time we get a peek into what’s important to the children! Here is what happened today.
Jack: I slept in my own bed last night - all night long!
Frank: I have rabbits and I know how they make babies. You put the boy in the girl’s cage. He jumps on her back. They shake around. Then we have to take the boy out of the cage and they have babies.
Luke: That’s disgusting.
Okay class, I think that might be enough sharing for the day…
