CLASS MEETINGS
Class Meetings with a Stopwatch

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: Nibley, Utah
Date Submitted: April 24, 2001

I hold class meetings every Friday for 35 minutes. When I first began doing them, I noticed that we would get so involved in discussions that the time just seemed to "fly by" without us getting to everything on our agenda. To help resolve this problem, I started bringing a stopwatch with me to our meetings. I designated a certain amount of time for each area. For example, I would set it for 15 minutes to discuss any problems and consequences. Then I would set it for 5 minutes for the children giving compliments to each other. I spent 10 minutes on student spotlights, and then 5 minutes for any class news or upcoming events. This way it really helped me stay on track with my time!
