The Best Digital Morning Meeting Activities for Kindergarten & 1st Grade

Digital Morning Meeting

Your morning meeting is the first step to setting up your day for success. It is the time to come together as a class and share with each other. Morning meetings can look and sound differently, depending on the classroom. This is often the time when you complete the calendar, talk about the weather, and have some great discussions with your students.

Morning meetings typically happen within the walls of your classroom. However, this coming year may look a little different for you. Perhaps your school is implementing distance learning from home or some sort of a hybrid option. Or, maybe you are starting the school year the same as always!  Either way, this digital morning meeting resource may be just what you need to start your day!

Each month, there is a new calendar and corresponding daily activities. There are enough activities to do something different every day.  The very first slide will always be the calendar. This is where you add the date, the day of the week, the weather, and decide which activity you would like your students to complete. If you look below, you can see that I have added icons for the first week. When clicked, each of those icons will take you to another slide.

Weather

After adding the weather for the current day, you can add to the weather graph. You simply click a color at the bottom and drag it to the correct spot on your chart.

Help your students create fun stories with these Mad Lib activities.

Fun Facts

The magnifying glass icon will lead you to a fun fact. In August, students learn about buses, apples, the month of August, and germs. After reading the fun facts, extend the learning with a discussion. Then, you can have students respond in writing or draw a picture.

Picture of the Day

This is one of my favorite activities and allows students to practice their inferring skills.

Question of the Day

This is where the kindergarten and first-grade morning meeting activities differ. The skills are based upon the grade level and time of year.

I Have an Opinion

This is the last type of activity. Students form an opinion and explain their thinking.
