We have a classroom filled with 23 eager and bright kiddos. We start each day with the phrase "We are a classroom family" because one of our goals is to promote a community of learning by working together in a caring environment.
The students in our classroom are very creative and enjoy sharing their creativity with others.
We work each day to encourage each other and celebrate individual and class goals.
I love going to work each day and teaching my awesome students!
Our classroom would love to have a comfy carpet where there is a spot for everyone. Each morning, we begin our day in a circle for Morning Meeting. Our Morning Meeting routine begins with a welcoming greeting, share time, and activity. By sitting in a circle, we are promoting a classroom community. During the day, the kiddos sit in rows where they can easily "turn and talk" to their elbow buddy to share what they know and explain their thinking. Each afternoon, we end our day sitting in a circle for Afternoon Wrap-Up. During Afternoon Wrap-Up, we review and discuss what we learned that day and give shout outs to one another for the great things that were observed in the classroom.
Our kiddos spend a lot of time sitting on the floor sharing and learning together.
I would love for the students to have a comfy area in the classroom where everyone has a spot.
