Classroom Environment

“We need to think about creating classroom environments that give children the opportunity for wonder, mystery and discovery; an environment that speaks to young children’s inherent curiosity and innate yearning for exploration is a classroom where children are passionate about learning and love school.” 

Our classroom has transformed over the course of the year. (I can't believe we are nearing the end of the year already!) We have been making intentional changes to ensure our environment acts as third teacher for our students. Our goal has been to create an environment that encourages the students to wonder, question and test their theories in order to deepen their understanding of the world around them.
