    Have you considered assigning special roles, such as
    calendar person, morning message helper. I have taught
    preschool for many years and I allowed my brighter
    students to write part of the the morning message, lead a
    portion of calendar time, etc. Eventually, other students
    were eager to participate and get a chance... This
    motivated my students who were reluctant to write or pay
    attention during morning meeting.
