Fabulous book packed with great ideas. Good transaction! Thanks!
Great, short ways to end the dayReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on February 11, 2021
I like this book as a great resource for ending the day, which unfortunately gets rushed. I appreciate the short 5 minute ideas. I always feel rushed and just need something quick to end the day on a positive note. Thank you for all the ideas. There's probably way more ideas for younger grades than the upper grades, but that's okay. I sometimes steal an idea from the younger grades.
Impossible to implement in realityReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on June 27, 2019
Bus lines, pick ups, walkers with unapproved caretaker trying to get them early--Closing circle has never been possible in any of the 3 classrooms I tried it in. Far too many issues come up at the end of the day for this--and if it is winter and I have dismissal duty I DEFINITELY do not have time for this. So sad but this isnt possible while teaching tot he test and getting all those Common Core standards hit every day.
Great Closer!Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 29, 2013
This is a must have classroom resource. Many of us have great ways to capture our student's attention through morning meetings, but if you are looking for a calm and productive way to end the day you have found it! I love the different ideas for saying goodbye and helping children reflect back over the activities of the day. What a pleasure it is to send calm students out of the classroom and into the care of their parents. I think it has really helped my students be more reflective about what they have done during the day and ready to have a good answer for parents who want to know what they did at school that day.

Life-changing!Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on March 13, 2020
My classroom had such a toxic vibe - the students were not treating each other well, we had no sense of community, etc. Our school does not provide time for morning meeting or other community-building. This book showed me how I CAN squeeze in a little community-building at the end of each day, and my students have responded so well! Thank you!!
