Thank you for visiting our classroom blog! My goal is for this to be a space to share some of the fun, exciting, and educational things we are doing in the classroom daily. We started to the school year by setting our classroom essential agreements. Each student brainstormed ideas for agreements that we needed to have in order to have a successful classroom for the year. We read David Goes To School by David Shannon and talked about how David was certainly a peacebraker and not a peacemaker. We all recited the Peacemaker Promise and pledged to be a good student and friend. Then we listened and followed directions as Ms. Battle read aloud step by step instructions on how to draw David. This was a fun way to draw and write ways we will all be peacemakers this year.
