Storyboard - Building a Community of Learners
This storyboard does not have a description.
Physical Space - Before the start of the term I will create warm organized space that accounts for the students' needs and prevents time robbers. Students will have opportunities to design the classroom with projects throughout the school year.
One Word - How are you feeling today?
Build Community - Care in the air. I will greet students at the door with a handshake and smile. We'll play name games throughout the first week. Music will be playing while students find their seats and work on warm up problems.
Include students in creating rules, norms, routines, and consequences - give students a voice and they will feel ownership over their school life.
Integrate a positive classroom ritual - We will start the day with "Good Things" or "Whip Around" where students say what is good in their life or how they are feeling.
Partner with parents - parents need to understand and support the classroom environment.
