Teaching with Madly Learning®

May 11, 2021

Are you looking for new ways to build connections and boost the confidence of your students? 


In this episode, we are talking all about morning meetings and closing circles. 


If you have no idea what I’m talking about, you're in for a treat. 


My friend Monica Dunbar recently wrote a book all about how to start implementing them in your classroom to increase student engagement and create a positive learning community, so she’s joining us to tell us all about it!


She breaks all of this down, makes it really practical, and gives you easy to implement activities so that you too can have fantastic, well-organized morning meetings and closing circles.


Monica is an enthusiastic educator with a passion for making connections with her students. Her love of education has led her to teach in the Canadian Arctic; creating educational materials for teachers around the world; and sharing her opinions, insights, and experiences on her blog at When she’s not in the classroom, Monica enjoys being at home with her husband, three children, and their lovable Samoyed, Nova. Most of her free time is spent at nearby arenas, with a cup of warm coffee in her hands, watching her children chase their dreams of Olympic gold medals and NHL stardom.


If you want to learn how to implement morning meetings and closing circles in your classroom and why they are so beneficial, tune in! 


I would love to connect on Facebook or Instagram!
