I am teaching a week long summer course for students with ASD. I will be leading a morning meeting for 30-60 minutes daily, then meeting with each student for 30 minutes daily, all over Zoom. I need ideas for how to make morning meeting meaningful for all students. I'll have students in 3rd, 6th, 7th, and 11th grades.

Fun! Yikes - that’s a long morning meeting...will you be doing it live? Without interacting with students I find my daily morning meetings fly by. What would normally take over 30 minutes can easily die in 7 minutes 🙈 I keep mine super similar to the routine I use throughout the year. Weather, appropriate clothing for the weather, seasons, songs for days/months, the date, practice counting to the number of the day (ie 15 for June 15th), alphabet review. I record a separate video that’s a read aloud of a different story each day. That could potentially be added to morning meeting - kids & their families have loved the read alouds. If there’s a Spanish version available I send that along too for my spending speaking families, and I include a list of questions they can ask their child about the book. I sure hope this was helpful! Excited to hear ideas to spice up my ESY morning meetings! 💕

Perhaps add sight words 🤷🏻‍♀️ maybe even include math challenges which could be differentiated for each level (adding single digit up to 5, up to 10, 20, multiplication of 1’s, 2’s, 10’s) and some number matching if you have any students on that level. Social skills are also excellent to practice.

Have them prepare reports on current events and work on WH questions. They could do Sports news, entertainment, local ect.

When is it either allowed or seen as OK to start using FTO? I recently started here and while I’m not looking to slack off and take time off, I just want to know how it works. (Plus, I don’t want to not use something that I can or should use.) Elementary stuff, I know. But I’ve freelanced my whole career until now. Thanks

Hi Dance Teachers! What have been your favorite “get to know you activities” over zoom on the first few days of school?

I never thought I’d say this, but I kinda miss the networking events and stuff. I used to just show up to those to be a good “firm citizen,” but I’d really love to see another lawyer in person instead of through a Zoom call. If I ran into one of my old classmates from law school, I’d probably hug them right now.

New creatives, in case you didn't learn this in ad school let me be the first to tell you: Concepting is activity best shared face to face (video).NOT in slack DMs. Do. Not. Talk. Over. Your. Partner.
