Start off each new month by introducing your Monthly Theme in Morning Meeting; let the class know that you will continue to touch back on this theme throughout the month. You should introduce the theme and create a y-chart showing what that value looks/sounds/feels like for your students specifically–it should be written in their words (age-appropriate). Create a space for this y-chart to be displayed and added to throughout the month. Encourage them to add ideas to the charts as the month goes on and even to add stories or pictures/examples demonstrating this value in their life or in the world. By the end of the month you should have discussed this value during at LEAST three morning meetings (about once a week).
Check back here each month for Morning Meeting ideas based off of each monthly theme.
