Community Meeting

Hidey, Hidey, Hidey, Hi!


  • Board to draw a large “Tic-Tac-Toe” grid.
  • Question strips. Download strips here.
  • Hat (or something to place question strips)

Greeting Objective

The learners will greet each other by doing a “call and response” greeting about respect.


  • Students sit in a circle.
  • Teacher begins greeting by standing in the middle.

Use the following format:

Teacher: “Hidey, hidey, hidey, hi.”
Class: “Hidey, hidey, hidey, hi.”
Teacher: “Hidey, hidey, hidey, ho.”
Class: “Hidey, hidey, hidey, ho.”
Teacher: “One thing I’ve learned and I’d like you to know.”
Class: “One thing I’ve learned and I’d like you to know.”
Teacher: “Respect each other, there’s really nothing to it!”
Class: “Respect each other, there’s really nothing to it!”
Teacher: “Use kind words, and here’s how you do it!”
Class: “Use kind words, and here’s how you do it!”
Teacher: “Good morning, class.”
Class: “Good morning, Mrs. Sullivan.”

  • The teacher greets one student and says, “Hidey, hidey, hidey, hi Trevor,” giving each other a high five. Trevor enters the
           middle of the circle to be greeted. (Teacher stays in the middle as the leader, but students rotate in and out.)
  • Repeat chant as time permits, greeting different students at the end.

Variation: Toward the middle or end of the year, students lead the greeting.

Respect Tic-Tac-Toe

(Culmination Activity)

Engagement Objective

The learners will play Respect Tic-Tac-Toe based on questions about respectas a culmination activity.


  • The teacher will cut the question strips apart and place in hat prior to activity and display the Tic-Tac-Toe grid.
  • Students will be divided into two groups (one group “X” and one group “O”).
  • A student from group “X” will draw a question from the hat and the teacher reads the question.
  • If the student correctly answers question, they will place an “X” on the grid. If the question is answered incorrectly it is placed back
           into the hat.
  • Repeat the process for group “O.”
  • The game continues until one group gets a “Tic-Tac-Toe.”
  • Conclude by reviewing some of the important aspects of respect.


End your community meeting by informing your students about the schedule of the day.
