Morning’s at The Malvern School of Richboro

richboro1Here at The Malvern School we pride our program on the importance of building social skills and a sense of community in our classrooms. One of our best practices of this is our daily Morning Meeting in each classroom. Morning Meeting has three main components: Greeting, Message and Sharing (for verbal children.)

The Greeting takes place in all classroom and can be presented in many ways. For our non-verbal children, our skilled teachers will speak for them introducing all of the children present for the day. Our verbal children will participate themselves, greeting a friend using not only their voice, but using one another’s names, making eye contact as well as some sort of physical contact (handshake, high-five, thumbs up, etc.)

The Message portion takes place in our Preschool, Prekindergarten and Kindergarten Enrichment classrooms. The “Message” is meant to outline the children’s day as well as have them actively participating in the meeting. It promotes a print rich environment as well as the skills of pre-reading and writing.

The Sharing portion takes place in our verbal classrooms. All children thrive on the opportunity to have a voice and this is a perfect example of how The Malvern School supports this. Sharing gives the children the spot light and attention they often times yearn for.   Sharing also teaches the children public speaking skills as well as a sense of pride.

Morning Meeting is meant to set the tone for the day! It is a time to set expectations and let the children know that the Love of Learning……..Begins here!
