Limited Capacity filling up

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
- To understand the 4 aspects of morning meeting (greeting, sharing, activity, message) and the ways that teachers can model the specific behavior they want children to imitate.  
- To be aware of what the research says about the morning meeting model, to increase emotional support and academic success.
- To know how to access resources to help them implement the morning meeting inside their classroom.
- To be able to incorporate academic content into morning meetings games.

This session is an introduction to morning meeting and will help teachers to create a sense of community in their classroom. Teachers who have not yet implemented morning meeting are encouraged to attend and will also benefit from learning the basic framework of morning meeting and gain resources to implement morning meeting. During this session, teachers will participate in a morning meeting and gain resources to use in their classrooms. 

A daily Morning Meeting is an opportunity for students to build caring relationships with their peers and teachers, to actively participate and practice social and emotional skills through engaging activities, and to feel valued and connected to the school community. During Morning Meeting, students will learn to greet and speak to each other respectfully, listen attentively and respond with empathy, and approach interpersonal conflicts calmly and assertively. These skills are essential for academic achievement as well as success in college and professional settings. When students begin their day with a Morning Meeting, they feel welcomed and recognized for making a positive contribution to the group. This boosts confidence, reinforces positive behavior, and sets the tone for their learning throughout the day.
