In our classroom we use a Responsive Classroom approach. Responsive Classroom is an instructional and behavior management resource that emphasizes social, emotional, and academic growth in a strong and safe school community. It is a student-driven approach that supports student reflection and accountability. Learn more about Responsive Classroom below!
During the first weeks of school we worked on building our classroom community and developed our class agreements of:
Take care of yourself
Keep everything beautiful
Everyone gets to learn and play
Work hard, and have fun!
If children feel safe, they can take risks, ask questions, make mistakes, learn to trust, share their feelings, and grow.
