From the Publisher

A teacher and students participate in a Morning Meeting.

Start the Day With Morning Meeting

Thousands of teachers across the country start their school days by leading a Responsive Classroom Morning Meeting, a powerful teaching tool that promotes a climate of trust, academic growth, and positive behavior.

What Is Morning Meeting?

A teacher and students participate in a Morning Meeting.

The Power of Morning Meeting

Responsive Classroom Morning Meeting is an engaging way to start each day, build a strong sense of community, and set children up for success socially and academically. In elementary classrooms, Morning Meeting lasts approximately half an hour and takes place near the beginning of each school day. It’s made up of four sequential components and provides daily opportunities for children to practice skills such as greeting, listening and responding, speaking to a group, reading, group problem-solving, noticing, and anticipating. Teachers integrate aspects of the classroom curriculum into the routine, which helps students make the transition to school and sets a tone of interactive and engaged learning from the outset of the day.

“Morning Meeting is a silent bulldozer in the field of school reform,” proclaimed Maurice Sykes, when he was Deputy Superintendent for the District of Columbia school system. And it’s true. When Morning Meeting is a regular part of a daily routine, it clears away the obstacles that impede children from feeling safe and engaged in school, creating the space for classroom members to take care of each other and to do their best learning.

Four Components of Morning Meeting

Students greet each other by selecting a shoe from the center of the Morning Meeting circle.

Morning Meeting activity

Students add to a morning message.


Students and teachers greet one another by name.


Students share information about important events in their lives. Listeners often offer empathetic comments or ask clarifying questions.

Group Activity

Everyone participates in a brief, lively activity that fosters group cohesion and helps students practice social and academic skills (for example, reciting a poem, dancing, singing, or playing a game).

Morning Message

Students read and interact with a short message written by their teacher. The message is crafted to help students focus on the work they’ll do in school that day.
