  1. What types of academic skills are addressed in the morning meeting? The academic skills that were address are lanauge skills and vocabulary. Students were able to communicate how they feel through synonyms for feelings. It also touch on social and emotions. Students were able to explicitly tell how they feel through morning meeting, which help build classroom culture.

I concurr with the other educators that Ms Noonan  is using so many great skills helping her learners by using so many excellent strategies.  I haven't seen the morning meeting done before and my first reaction was that precious minutes were being lost.  Her learners are goal setting before class begins.  They want to be pepared if their name is called and this helps in self-assessment and goal setting.  She uses so many language building strategies and the safe community is so evident. Outstanding job!

The examples shown during the morning meeting including self-reflection, word wall - synonyms for feelings, "I am feeling...because...", and greetings that allow the students opportunities for building consensus without intervention of an adult truly incorporates the social/emotional piece that "establishes a safe and comfortable tone for learning throughout the rest of the day." Guided with daily classroom routines, these students appeared to be motivated to challenge themselves in learning and using more sophisticated vocabulary while transitioning from one activity to another. Ms. Noonan captures the transfer of vocabulary knowledge from the 'word of the day' to read alouds to student writing and editing for publication in a manner that promotes increased productive vocabulary knowledge. This video wonderfully provides well-defined examples for building a language enriched academic environment; excellent resource!
