My Morning Meeting Leader is a key job that every student will have at least once throughout the year (we switch weekly, so some will be Meeting Leader twice). This person is responsible for leading our class in Morning Meeting and really getting us off to a good start to our day. To read more about Morning Meeting, click HERE.
My teammate had a wonderful idea to keep this leadership role up throughout the day and it made perfect sense! Since the Meeting Leader is in charge of starting the Greeting in the morning (where each student greets the student next to them by name), they can keep up that role as Class Greeter during the day.
This simple sign is right next to our door to help. Now, whenever a parent, support teacher, the principal, another staff member, etc. comes to our door, our Meeting Leader is in charge of greeting them using this script. They are also encouraged to shake their hand and we're now working on a firm (not wet noodle!) handshake :)

I am thrilled that my students will now be developing their leadership skills beyond their comfort zone and also take more responsibility and ownership of our classroom.
How does your class welcome visitors? (I'll be honest, before this sign, students never did! It was always my role. But I know there are tons more ideas out there and I'd love to hear them in the comments!!)
