Morning Messages are the perfect way to stay connected and provide instruction to your students while teaching remotely, and then see your face and hear your voice. Use your daily Morning Message video in any of the following ways:

  • Instruction: Use your Morning Message to create a mini-lesson for your students based on your scope & sequence
  • Review: Review yesterday's lesson or address areas where you noticed students struggled 
  • Recognition: Recognize students by name by mentioning them in your video (your kids will love this) for completing their practice time 
  • Connection: Encourage your students and let them know you're here for them even from home

  • Each new Morning Message replaces the previous days recording
