This is a GRAND COLLECTION of 38 tried-&-true games & activities all designed to build a sense of connection & community in your class. Every game is very organized & clearly explained (see the preview for a close up).
These activities would be so much fun for any elementary aged student! But listen, they're not only for the kids ... We all know teaching is hard sometimes ...and it’s incredibly refreshing to make a little time in each day to just HAVE FUN, smile & laugh together!
Need ideas for how to make that happen? That's why I created this collection... so it's EASY for us to think of a good game when we need one. Most games are ZERO PREP so you can play them on a moment's notice.
(FYI: They're only called "Morning Meeting activities" because that's the time when so many teachers include a fun game... play them whenever you want!).
This resource will give you tons of awesome ideas for classic and new games and activities to try with your class. And BONUS: You also get access to my gigantic online collection of all my favorite educational and "just for fun" brain breaks because these can also make great morning meeting activities. I have this site open on my classroom computer at all times... you'll use it for sure! (BTW, this site only counts as of the 38 games, but it's honestly 100s and 100s of activities!) :)
In my Kindergarten classroom, our daily morning meeting includes a greeting, sharing time, and an activity. The activity usually takes 5-10 minutes… sometimes more or less ...and we do THE SAME activity every day for a week (Of course, you can do yours differently- that's just an example of what works for me). With 38 unique games, that will last you a long time!
You can choose to keep this as a digital resource OR print the games as full-page directions (1 game/page) OR quarter-page-sized directions (4 games/ page that could be cut apart and put on a ring as a quick handy reference tool).
Wishing you a fun-filled school year! :)
