Building a Classroom Community

Students have greater success in school when they build relationships with other students and adults. An effective way to increase trust and cooperation is through morning meetings. In this class, you will learn ways to create or strengthen this morning ritual. By starting your day in this positive way students will build confidence and become more invested in their learning.  At your own pace, you will learn how to implement morning meetings and complete activities that will assist you.

Student Testimonials:

This class has been extremely helpful to me. Through the reading and research I have been doing I have gained insight and knowledge into how to hopefully run and manage my classroom more effectively and build my students up so that they are successful in my classroom and beyond. I have really started to rethink how I run my classroom and the activities I have students engage in. I am hoping that I will continue to do so and that it leads to my students and I feeling more successful and joyful in the classroom.

This has been a rewarding class that has helped me getting to know each child and settle them down in an intentional and educational way! I have a lot of activities and files ready for the next 10 years and we love AM Meetings in our class!

I’m very excited about Morning Meetings. There is so many great ideas out there and each year I see myself more knowledgeable of what works and what doesn’t (and time it takes), experience and flexibility counts for so much in education. I’m always getting more ideas each year and classes like this one that has forced me to actually read the book from cover to cover gave me even more insight (and of course, ideas).  How will I make it my own?  Every class is different so I will have to play it by ear. But having the foundation and the basics down is a big one.  I know given time I can integrate more curriculum with the activities and morning messages and hopefully inspire my ELL students to take more chances and feel more at home quicker.  Thanks for the opportunity to take this class. It has opened my eyes to have more inclusion and be more aware of my ELL students (more than I was already doing), my academic strugglers, and shy students.

Ashley, thank you for your immediate(!) responses to my emails.  Whether I had a concern or question, or I was turning in an activity, you seemed to be immediately available.  Not really sure how you did that.
