I totally agree with this article! I think morning meetings are very important to building a community in your classroom, and allowing everyone to share their ideas. It takes some time before the students feel comfortable with each other usually, but at the beginning of the year, you would be doing lots of Ice Breakers and team building activities. It is a time to grow together as a class and create a culture where students feel open about sharing emotional times in their life. Children need to have that support in the classroom, so they can lean on their peers as well as the teacher. I want to incorporate these in my classroom with my Pre-K kiddos!
