We have already begun Tuning In to our unit during our Morning Meetings using our name sticks.
The J&C Team made each student a name stick with their picture on one side and their name on the other. Each morning we sing “Good Morning” and then welcome each student to class by holding up their picture. This helps our students recognize their classmates and put names to faces. Activities like this are why our Morning Meeting is so important, so thank you to everyone who arrives by 8:30am!
