Morning Message and Responsive Classroom

This morning during my walk through I saw Morning Meeting and Responsive Classroom taking place in Mrs. Hoyt's kindergarten classroom, Mrs. Bourgeois's first grade classroom and Ms. Jackson's first grade classroom too.

The Morning Meeting is a great tool to prepare students to learn, work on social-emotional learning, and build a culture of respect.

Responsive Classroom is an approach that shows the link between social-emotional learning and academics. It also creates a community and enhances a culture of kindness.

Both Morning Meeting and Responsive Classroom are great practices that strengthen our message of being appropriate, safe and kind (ASK). We recognize ASK behaviors at Pine Glen with "Hoot" cards. The reason we call them "Hoot" cards is because our mascot is an owl.
