I am reading the Morning Meeting Book by Roxann Kriete and am beginning to introduce the Morning Meeting to my students. The greeting and the activity parts are going well, but in the sharing part, I am struggling to help my students to respond to the sharer without telling their own story. Also, it is very challenging teaching the kids the difference between questions and comments. Does anyone have any ideas?
