Are you looking to add a new twist to your mornings? Taking a few minutes to invite students to communicate with you and their peers can be very helpful when building your class community.
This can be done by having a morning meeting. The FREE Summer Question of the Day helps students communicate with others in front of the group. They can learn how students will have similarities, as well as differences which are what makes us all unique.
The Summer Question of the Day can be used for Summer camps, Autism programs, or any program that continues into the Summer.
It’s also helpful for Back to School as student’s reflect and share stories on what they did over the Summer.
You may also like the Back to School Question of the Day to go with the FREE one so you have the first two months planned and ready to go.
Extending Question of the Day for 1st and 2nd Grades
Although these are used often in Preschool and Kindergarten the Question of the Day can be used in 1st and 2nd grade just as easily.
The question can be extended if they are beginning to write in journals. They can use their journal each morning to write about their opinions and experiences.
For 1st and 2nd grade readers, simply place a question out before students arrive. Have students come in and read the question and answer it before going to morning work. They can place their name card in the pocket chart with their answer. This gives them a chance to practice their reading skills. Then they can discuss and share their experiences at morning meeting.
I hope you enjoy this FREE resource!
