Every morning students in Mrs. Johnson’s class start their day with a CREW meeting. This is a time to welcome everyone to the classroom. There is a different greeting every month of the year. Students learn to shake hands, look each other in the eye and greet with a name. Students also work on team building through an initiative. Our job is to move the hula hoop around the circle without using our hands. Our times have fluctuated from 2 minutes 20 seconds to 1 minute 30 seconds. After the initiative is over we discuss what strategies worked and what didn't for each round.
