Have you ever wanted to improve your relationship with your students? Do you want to improve the community in your classroom? Do your students need support with solving problems amongst themselves? Start your school year off right!
This guide will help you do all of these things. This is based on a strategy I have used in my own classroom for years. It works every year! My students always say it was the best part of our school year and the thing they will remember the most about our year together.
Community Circle is a daily, or weekly event in a classroom and is much like a class meeting. During this time, every student has a chance to share, practice attentive listening and as a class you can work on problem solving in a scaffolded environment.
This document will explain how I run Community Circle in my own classroom with tips and alternatives so you can customize it to your own classroom. I will also give reasons for why this method is superior to a more traditional class meeting.
I would love feedback on this product if you have any! Thanks for your purchase.
