How to set up your classroom so teachers and children can work together respectfully, happily and creatively.
Every year we work with the students to create essential agreements for the art room. This year we went a step further and worked collaboratively with the PA and VA teachers.
We grouped students in 4's and give then an activity to do.
VA draw a picture together
PA make a dance together.
Great excitement BUT... No talking allowed!!!
This is how we introduced the Learner profile of Communicator. A debrief with the students after the activities illustrated the importance of being able to communicate well.
