Morning Meeting/Responsive Classroom

The Morning Meeting uses teacher modeling for students to practice and learn important social skills that will benefit the students' social and academic lives. Morning Meeting sets the tone for respectful learning, trust, cooperation, problem solving, and a sense of community in the classroom.
Is morning meeting just for K-2? NO! Watch this 3-5 video. Think about the ways the students are integrating speaking, listening, rela, and social skills!

Quick Key

Quick Key’s gridded response format will let you create math questions that your students can answer on paper or online. If your students respond on paper, you can use the Quick Key mobile app to scan the paper and have your students' responses quickly graded. If your students answer online, their responses are automatically graded upon submission
