Building a Classroom Community: An Actionable Approach for Back to School

Building a classroom community is threefold. It involves fostering relationships with children, families, and other staff members, cultivating a sense of belonging, and creating a positive learning environment. In this session, we will talk about ways to establish and strengthen community within your setting by considering the quality of everyday interactions, traditions and rituals within your routine, and the health and safety of the learning environment.
