Making My Classroom a Community

Every year we try to make our classroom feel like a community. We take an individual picture and blow it up to a 8X10 and ask the kids what they're best at. We then display their picture above the words be your best. The students love seeing their picture posted. It also helps with learning others names and they're able to read what the other kids are good at. Their pictures always turn out so cute.


This is my last years picture. You have to add your picture too right? I don't know about you but several of my sweeties call me teacher. This helps them  learn my name too. How do you make your classroom a community?

  6. What a wonderful idea, Rikki! I love it. It's so important to do things like that, especially since we work our kiddos SO hard nowadays! I usually do a lot of games and team building exercises, and the token "Star of the Week". But I like your idea of having the wall up all year. That makes it special!!

  7. I'm so glad you found my blog! I have had so much fun reading through yours. I love this idea and displaying the kid's pictures. I'm always looking for good ideas to build community in my classroom too! I have a Friends and Family Board where I share have pictures of our "school family" and pictures of the kids family. They love telling others about their family and talking about the pictures.

    Yeehaw! Teaching in Texas
