This is a lesson plan created by Miranda. I wrote it for my thesis which was on the home and school connection or more often called school connectedness. This lesson should be used during the first week of school or first day of school, but can also be used throughout the school year with your primary students. There is a short read aloud followed by an art activity that teaches your students how to feel comfortable at school when they are away from home. It provides strategies to help your students feel a sense of belonging, a sense of home and a sense of comfort while in the classroom. School is a safe environment. School is fun.
