PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson introduces students to the their classroom cubbies. The lesson allows the class as a whole to determine what is the appropriate use of a cubby and how to best care for them.

What is a Guided Discovery?
It is a student-centered approach to introducing materials and routines in the classroom, developed by the folks at Responsive Classroom.

According to Lynn Bechtel and Paula Denton, "The primary goal of Guided Discovery is to generate interest and excitement about classroom resources and help children explore their possible uses. Guided Discovery also provides opportunities to introduce vocabulary, assess children’s prior knowledge, and teach responsible use and care of materials."

I would add that Guided Discoveries also build community. Students are asked to listen to each other, compliment one another, and really see and hear the work and ideas of their peers. Using this strategy I have built compassionate, organized, and respectful classrooms.
