I am getting my plans finalized (face it, they are never REALLY finalized) for next week and I wanted to share with you my Earth Day morning meeting activity. We do a Morning Meeting EVERYDAY.. and oh boy if I don't! My kiddos really enjoy starting the day together this way. We do a greeting, calendar on the SMARTboard, share news and then do an activity. I switch off the activity between
It's a take-off on the "Find Someone Who" activities many people do at the beginning of the year. Everyone has a sheet and has to walk around the room talking to each other, looking for someone's name (or initials, depending on how big my second graders decide to write that day) in each box. The object is to try to find someone different for each box. Here's a link to the freebie if you'd like to use it in you classroom. Just click on the picture below.
Honestly, I do not do too much for Earth Day. I know.. throw the tomatoes (organic ones, of course). I never seem to be able to fit too much in. I do have a couple books to share and I'll do one of the questions on the sheet as our sign in so we can talk about some math questions with it. That will about do it.
Oh - if you're interested in a few more "Find Someone Who" activities on different spring themes, visit my TpT store. I have a whole set of them just for spring! They're lots of fun for morning activities or a break during the day. Well, I'm off to enjoy another couple of days of staying up late and sleeping in. 6:00 is going to come WAY to early on Monday.
