" In a constantly changing world, educators are struggling to find an effective classroom management strategy. Morning meetings are a beneficial tool to maintain a positive relationship while addressing negative behaviors and sustaining academic performance. Participants were students in a kindergarten class attending a rural public school. Their behavior was observed during and after morning meetings. Data was collected daily for four weeks in the form of observations, end-of-day self-reflections, and Likert scale tests. The study concluded that there is a correlation between better grades, more positive behaviors, and stronger relationships. While the morning meeting takes a significant amount of time to introduce effectively, observations suggest that implementing morning meetings as a daily routine has a profound impact on student development."
