Morning Meeting Easel for Student Interaction

My students need an easel to write responses to Morning Meeting questions and place materials in tubs and chart paper for group projects and anchor charts.

My Students

Each day we begin with our Morning Meeting to promote social and emotional learning through greetings, activities and open-ended questions with discussions. By the end of the school year, I want my students to be able to share their thoughts confidently knowing they've been well prepared.

My kiddos are wonderful and loving learners who are ready to soak up new information each day they walk into the classroom.

They are eager to not only learn academics but also how to interact with one another and apply their new social and emotional awareness skills to their everyday life. We are a Title I school so our students come from low-income families who don't always have the opportunity to continue enrichment at home or give more responsibility to their child so being at in our class gives them the chance to be a kid and learn how to interact with others their age. School is sometimes an escape for some children and we work to make sure they feel safe in their learning environment and understand they also contribute to that atmosphere. At our school, we try to supply students with ways for all types of learners to be able to be successful in the classroom regardless of background. We do our best to try and supply the classrooms with what we need but can't always afford to.

My Project

Each morning students walk in with their binders ready for the day. As attendance is being taken and students are silently reading, on our easel will be a question or comment posted for the day. The children will read the comment/question and take a dry-erase marker to write their response around what the teacher wrote. Once we are ready, I will call students to the circle and we will sit and do our greetings with one another. We will the take a look at what was written by me then have the students share their response that was written and explain. During Reading and Math time we will also use the board as an interactive tool during a lesson as well as during Center time when working in small groups.

This project will help our classroom immensely because our school is unable to supply us with an easel and it will be a HUGE part of our learning this year.

We will be using it each day and it is something that many students begin to look forward to in the mornings. The kids love to share their thoughts and ideas with one another but some tend to be very shy. Writing it down first with the option of sharing verbally is a great start and by the end of the year, all students are eager to share!
