Non-Contact Morning Greetings Posters

PDF | 1 page|Grades: Pre-K - 5

Non-contact greetings that students can do with their teachers and peers.

Classroom morning greetings are so important when it comes to your daily classroom routine. Not only do they deepen your relationship with each individual student, but they also help your students learn those critical communication skills.

Don’t let social distancing squash this powerful part of your routine! Use this set of classroom posters to show your students the different non-contact greetings they can use to greet you and their friends each morning. These greetings even work virtually!

The greetings include:

  • big smiles
  • waving
  • foot tapping
  • air hugging
  • jazz hands
  • air high fives
  • elbow bumping.

How to use these resources:

  • Hang the greetings poster outside your classroom door for students to use each day to choose how they would like to use to say ‘hello’.
  • Do you partner your students before morning meeting each day and have them greet and sit with their partners? If so, hang the greetings display in your classroom for students to use during morning meeting to decide how they would like to greet their partner.

Use the drop-down menu to choose between the different options for this resource. They are:

  • Greetings poster in color on letter-size
  • Greetings poster in black and white on letter-size
  • Greetings poster in color on tabloid-size
  • Greetings poster in black and white on tabloid-size
  • Greetings display in color on letter-size

I wish these weren’t necessary, but I love that they exist!

We do too Cory, but we are so glad that you like them! We know how important morning greetings are with our students and didn’t want them to stop because of social distancing. We hope your students find at least one non-contact greeting that they love! Have a great start to your school year!
