Bright Ideas: Morning Meeting Greeting

I am so excited to be a part of  the Bright Ideas Linky!
I am going to share an idea for your Morning Meeting greeting time.  If you follow me on Instgram, you saw this on there.
I like to use Morning Meeting to review things we have learned the day before or just review things we have learned that year.

During our greeting time, I will pass out addition or subtraction cards with answers, puzzle pieces, or letter matching cards to each student.

They have to take their card and find the person who is a match to their card.  Once they find their partner they greet them (saying hello with a handshake, high five, etc) and then they give their partner a compliment.  We are at that time of year where we are very comfortable with each other (maybe a little too much sometimes), so it is a great time to throw in something nice to fill our buckets :)
This is so quick and easy because we all have different kinds of flashcards or small puzzles laying around.  
Once a group says hello and gives a compliment they come up to me and switch their cards for new ones.  Then they are off to find their new partner and they will do it all over again.
If you liked this idea, make sure to follow my Instagram and Facebook page so you don't miss any other ideas!
