Daily Greetings and Check-Ins

How are students greeted in your class each day?


Your first interaction with your students is your chance to gauge mood, help them reset if needed, make a connection, and positively start off your day or class together. According to research, greeting each student at the door with a positive message daily brings benefits for both students and educators.



Educators have the power to make students want to come to school every day…or not.

Making Connections With Greetings at the Door

Research shows that greeting students as they come into class bolsters a feeling of belonging and readiness to learn.

How do we greet our students when they are late?

Questions to Consider:

* Was their lateness something they had control over?
* What circumstances led to the lateness that we may be unaware of?
