BE THE HERO!
Our classroom theme is HEROES. In our classroom, we are trying each day to be the Hero of our life story. Heroes don't have to be people who save lives, do incredible things, or earn outstanding honors (but they certainly can be)! Each one of us can be the hero of our life story every single day. It's easy. By doing just a little extra, we can turn the ordinary into something extraordinary. In our classroom, we will try to be Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be a Learner, and Show our Donley PRIDE. By doing these things, each one of us can be a HERO!
The 21st Century Classroom: Flexible Learning Space
We are in the process of updating our classroom layout and furniture to be more of a 21st Century classroom with flexible learning space. Our goal is to figure out how to accommodate at least three different kinds of seating: floor, desks and chairs, and standing tables. We would also like to provide comfortable seating options. The current research in education says that giving students more choice in where they sit to learn and do their work results in greater focus and engagement, and ultimately, more learning!
