Creating Community in the Classroom
The students in my classroom can most often be observed working, learning, and growing together as individuals and as a team! My favorite ways to create classroom community are through team building games and exercises like the compliment web and the line game, a unity bulletin board complete with student pictures and bio poems, a compliment jar, morning twitter messages to excite classes for the day and afternoon tweets to praise behavior, reinforce content, or remind students of assignments.
You Can Do It! I Believe in You!
I have very high expectations for all of my students. I believe that my job is to give kids all the tools they need to discover and to learn. My teaching strategies are ever evolving and always changing. I tailor my strategy to the mood of the class at any given time. I take into consideration learning styles and adapt my teaching to fit those styles. I love to use strategies such as: interactive notebooks, roleplaying, learning grammar through movement, games, human barometers, and word rings...just to name a few! Once they are given the tools, I monitor, reinforce, and PRAISE their accomplishments and successes! You will never see me behind my desk. I am always roaming the room in wonder at what my students are creating!
