Coaching Question: Is there a way to digitalize my Morning Meeting wall so I that I may save wall space?
Many elementary school teachers are familiarizing themselves with the Responsive Classroom approach and using a Morning Meeting to start the day. The Morning Meeting is a great way to start the day, engage students and promote a sense of community within your classroom. However, the Morning Meeting bulletin board can take up a lot of space leaving little room for student work, instructional materials or anchor charts!
Example Morning Meeting Bulletin Board:
The Solution: Go Digital
If you have a projector then definitely go digital! By having a digital Morning Meeting wall, you are not only saving space but you also allowing students to:
- Collaborate by adding questions
- Archive information to review as the year progresses
- Read teacher posts (and of course Bitmojis)
- Edit/Revise questions for the meeting
- Publish learning
- Share with parents, co-teachers, administrators, and collaborators
Plus, you don’t need to have the Morning Meeting wall projected on your whiteboard all day. Bookmark the digital Morning Meeting wall and pull it up on your whiteboard as needed throughout the day. And, share the wall with students via Google Classroom, Seesaw, e-mail etc. to have the reflect, comment, or collaborate on the digital bulletin board.
