Building a community looks at the beginning like getting to know each other, and then slowly slowly turns into creating a team identity. Since the very first day of school we introduced ourselves in many playful ways, and welcomed our new friends with open hugs.
In the classroom we will spend lots of time together sharing experiences, thoughts, space and materials. The poem “Together” by George Ella Lyon that we read, helped us build and share the same dream as well.
"Let's put our heads together and dream the same dream" was written in the poem, and that’s exactly what we did. We put our heads together on our “magic” carpet and we dreamed that we were bees flying all around in an effort to find just the right place to build our home.
Can dreams come true? Well... in our classroom they can. We proved that when all of us work together, we can make our dreams come true. Believe it or not, after we woke up from that dream, we still were bees. And we were very busy making our classroom the right place to live in. Do you want to learn how we did it?
