I couldn't find the post that Zoom had asked for more details on my morning meeting (we call it "Morning Focus") - but I figured I'd dish out a little info here, in case anyone was interested. I saw the other morning meeting thread but didn't want to hijack. The morning is always the hardest time to get the kids on track because it's really a "transition" into the complete structure zone that is my classroom. I found that when the kids had a VERY set routine to follow (which could vary within itself, but follow the same general idea each day) - the kids did VERY well because they knew what to expect (very TEACCHish of me because I've always been a TEACCH person). Anyway, every year, I make my kids "Morning Focus" books (in elementary school they were "Morning Circle" Books). They have all of the different things we talk about and do during Morning Focus. This year, they are going to have: Calendar (day, date, month, year) Weather (identifying different weather as well as current weather outside, identifying temperature via window thermometer) Important people (teachers, therapists, principal, mayor, governor, president) Important places (our city, state, country, and continent) Independent Living Skills (word of the day) Basically, I make a page with moveable (velcro) pieces for each "section" of Morning Focus. The kids go through with me and put their pieces on. The lower kids have errorless pieces (the only option is the right one) and the higher kids have to choose the right pieces (have to find the Monday piece on Monday, have to find the sunny piece when it's sunny outside, etc.) Will add more later... the kid I am summer tutoring just decided that computer lab time is up! I will be back after he goes home. This is my quick moment to get some forum time in.
