Getting off on the right foot in the morning can set your mood for the day. For example, if you slept through your alarm and didn’t have time for a shower, you may not feel good all day long. However, if you got up in the morning to your favorite cup of coffee, odds are, you started the day with a smile on your face. This applies to your students and classroom, too. O2B Kids is a preschool in Florida for kids and infants through age five. We’ve developed our own curriculum that puts the emphasis on child-centered learning. Setting the tone for the day with your students and yourself can be a great way to foster a sense of community and to help build organizational skills. Below, we’ll go over a few of the many benefits of hosting morning meetings for your class. Contact us for enrollment information today! BENEFITS OF HOSTING MORNING “MEETINGS” FOR YOUR CLASS Let Kids Know What to Expect Children (and adults) thrive on routine. Since their concept of time can be quite constrained at a young age, it helps them to know what is coming next. Plus, it can make those activities that a child may dread all the more easier to get through when they know their favorite activity, such as reading or art, is ahead! Pulse Check Children love to talk and to tell you about their lives. By having a morning meeting, you can give your class an opportunity to share what they did the previous night or what their weekend plans are at the same time. This can not only give your children a chance to tell you the exciting things in their lives, providing a great bonding activity, but they can also help eliminate daily interruptions with these stories. Set the Tone for the Day Many of your kids may arrive at your school frazzled. Perhaps their parents slept through their alarms so the morning was rushed. Maybe they forgot something important at home that they needed, such as their favorite snack. By gathering your class together first thing, you can turn their day around with a fun activity that makes them forget all about their morning at home. CHOOSE O2B KIDS FOR YOUR PRESCHOOL TODAY O2B Kids encourages our teachers to start their day off on the right foot so the children are prepared for a fun-filled day of exploration and learning. If you’re able to, we encourage you to try making time for a short meeting every morning with your class to let them know what the day is going to look like and to help them feel more prepared for anything the day can throw at them. You’ll begin to notice a huge difference in your children’s attitudes, less questions throughout the day, and an expectancy that fosters learning. Contact our early learning childhood center today!
