Dealing with the Roadblocks of Implementing Morning Meeting

Has "Back to School" got you stressing yet? Well, hopefully I can be just the right dose of ibuprofen to ease your pain! Or cup of coffee, or glass of water--which ever you prefer, really :) Have you tried to implement a community meeting or morning meeting into your upper elementary classroom and struggled with the routines, management, finding the time or just having enough ideas for morning meeting to sustain it?

Well, I am thrilled to share with you that today I have the privilege of guest posting about morning meetings in the upper elementary classroom for my friend Kathie over at Tried and True Teaching Tools. I met Kathie a year ago at tpt Vegas and we have stayed in touch as online friends ever since. When she asked me to guest post on her blog, I thought "of course!," but when she suggested I write about Morning Meeting, I was so excited to figure out how to share my love of morning meeting on her blog! Well, I hope you will LOVE what I came up with.
