Reconnecting Your Classroom Community helps you learn how to provide a safe and nurturing environment for elementary age students. Through playing games, you and your students will gain trust, learn more about one another, and have fun!
The many activities are curated to fully support your student's exploration of identity and self within the classroom (and larger) community.
You will find a sample newsletter to help explain the necessity for building a strong community within your classroom and school.
These games and activities can be used during the first six weeks of school and throughout the year. I often come back to "Hot Lava" whenever my 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students need to re-connect with one another. And, "Step Into the Circle" is a much loved and asked for activity every year! These games and activities can easily be tailored to your classroom community.
