This book addresses the place and importance of Greeting, Sharing, Group Activity, and News and Announcements for grades k through 8. It gives both theoretical and practical reasoning as well as many examples. There is an appendix for each component that lists many activities, categorized by appropriate grade level. Kriete does a nice job of pointing out the skills taught in all the components of morning meetings, and step-by-step helps any teacher set the same tone in his/her classroom. For example, in Group Activity, skills such as attentive listening, voice-control, and team-work are re-inforced by specific activities where each is a critical element. There aren't enough books out there on these types of skills! Thanks Roxann Kriete!

I've always conducted class meetings, but this book is the ultimate guide. Its easy to follow format and practical ideas make it easy for those who've never held class meetings before as well as veteran teachers. And there's research to back up the positive effects these meetings have on student learning! I recommend this book to any teacher. It's given me a greater insight into how my students think, feel, and communicate and starts each day out on an often needed positive note. A must read for any teacher who wants to build a positive classroom community!

Helpful for fifth grade teacherReviewed in the United States on July 31, 2018
Bought the First Six Weeks of School book first and loved it, but wanted more info. The Morning Meeting helped me to get a better grasp on what to plan for and how to effectively integrate this component into a classroom. I teach fifth grade and the author does a great job of including ideas and examples for older kids as well as younger.

Idealistic, not part of Common CoreReviewed in the United States on June 27, 2019
While I love the ideas in this book, it isnt practical. There are not enough minutes in the day to have this implemented WELL in a classroom. Even if you shove in Number of the day and weather to fit some math and science standards in, there is no time for this. Welcome to teaching today.

Must have and implementReviewed in the United States on October 10, 2019
This book is clearly written and helpful to get morning meeting started. It has great ideas and suggestions to do during morning meeting. My school got Sanford Harmony a free SEL program. The cards for what they call “meet-up” are perfect for the morning meeting share and activity. Morning meetings are a game changer for the classroom. Amazing connections and conversations occur during the meeting time. It is worth making time for in the day.
