I just love morning meetings... NOW! But boy oh boy, there was a time in my career where it was the absolute bane of my life. Not because I didn't value it, I definitely do, but it was the planning! Oh, the planning... 😵
Isn't that a lovely thing, you might be thinking! 😍 Indeed, it was very special. I watched them grow and supported them through their whole school journey.
HOWEVER, while that's all lovely and beautiful, 7 years is a long time and that meant that every 👏 single 👏 day 👏 I had to come up with something new each morning! 😨
I cannot begin to tell you how stressful that was! Morning meeting was so important to me as that was the only time of the day I had with my group to bond and develop their social emotional skills, and of course, I couldn't ever reuse content, agh! 😰
My students needed routine, and so I was constantly trying to scramble anything I could get together each day in an attempt to maintain consistency.
After many years of this haphazard way of working, I realised this wasn't working as it was burning me out; something needed to change.
Well, you'll be pleased to know that I solved the problem 🎉 I made a year long PowerPoint of daily morning meeting prompts that gave me something new to use each day and I didn't have to plan anymore. In fact, I actually made that resource even better so that now it's all online and ready to access wherever you are - no resources needed! 💻
