Morning meetings are generally comprised of several different components:
- Sharing opportunity for students
- Group activity
- Announcements / Teacher Message
Step 1: Create a Slide with Your Meeting Information
I tend to use Google Slides to communicate information; however, you could use PowerPoint, Keynote, etc. to share your agenda or information with students.
I created the following example in Google Slides.
Step 2: Create Your Morning Meeting in Flipgrid
Next, you will want to create a new topic in Flipgrid to create your morning meeting. It may be helpful to title your meeting as the date and set a 1 - 2-minute time limit for students sharing. You will also want to include a description, instructions, and shareable link to Google Slides in your Flipgrid too!
It may be helpful to use Flipgrid to record a sample video greeting students and explaining how the meeting will work.
Step 3: Share with Your Students
Finally, you will want to share the link to your FlipGrid with your students. You can do this a variety of ways. If you already have a tool like Google Classroom, Schoology, or another LMS, I would recommend sharing the link directly through that.
