I was introduced to the Morning Meeting Book, by Roxann Kriete, by a professor of one of my master's classes. I am very interested in using this, because it sounds like something that my students could really benefit from. Building a community, learning to respect each other, and helping all students feel welcomed not just by their teacher, but by their peers. However, it seems like it might be unrealistic to take time away from academics for this. Has anyone used this in 5th grade and found it to be successful?
