I always, always, always make it a point to greet each one of my students every day! No matter what mood I might be in or whatever I may be doing… I always stop to say hello to whoever walks in that door! Sometimes my little kiddos can be sneaky and I don’t even see them come in, so they always get the greeting of “Hey!! I didn’t even see you come in! You’re so quiet!” – always makes them grin like they put one over on me!
Another one of my favorite things to say is “I’m so glad you’re here today!” I want my students to feel like I’m happy to see them and glad they are coming to school. I also let them know we’ve missed them if they’ve been out. It just makes me sad to think that some kids may not get a good morning said to them at home so I make sure to start their school day out right!
Feel free to pin, post, instagram my image to spread the greeting love!
