Integrating Math in Morning Meeting

To help connect math with our daily Morning Meeting, I often put a math response question or chart on the board with directions for the children as they enter the classroom. We then discuss the results during our Morning Meeting.

Here’s an example where the students had to solve a word problem. I had given directions for them to take a blank piece of paper that I had set out for them and draw a picture that represents what is happening to the bones in the problem. After students shared their pictures/strategies during Morning Meeting, I glued the papers to the chart paper and hung it in the hallway.

Here’s another example, this time with a chart that they had to help fill in.

Another example with a chart about the different measurement tools with what they measure.

And the chart completed after our share where students told what they had written on the chart and why they thought it was correct or incorrect.
