"This is a good place to be."
"You Belong here."
"This is a place you can trust."
"There are places where you can be by yourself when you want to."\
"You can do many things on your own here."
"This is a safe place to explore and try out your ideas."
How children feel in your classroom, and before they enter is vital. It is very important that we allow children the freedom to express themselves.
When a child wakes up in the morning, I want them to be excited to come to school. I want them to know that the community of learners is waiting on them, and that we need them too, to make the classroom work. ;)
