This week, we were inspired by these caring classrooms all over the country. These small steps = BIG impact. Give them a try and let us know what’s going on in YOUR #CaringClassroom! Post on Twitter or Facebook or share your story on our site!
Creating Caring Environments
Ms. Wintuska kicked off the new year by giving her students the opportunity to brainstorm their perfect classroom & redesign their mission statement.
Refocusing for the new year! Students brainstormed their ideas of a “Perfect Classroom” on sticky notes. We grouped them by similar theme & then wrote an updated classroom mission statement. It’s going to be a great year! @JresRockets pic.twitter.com/elFu5rikIY

Giving Students Ownership Of Their Learning
You’ve probably seen the #OneWord2018 trend on Twitter. We love this unique take from Teacher Amanda Duffy.
I gave my students the #oneword2018 challenge. I allowed them to write their words on the wall in their own handwriting to take ownership of their words and to make them a permanent piece of art in room46. #FLHornets #duffyland #duffydynasty pic.twitter.com/JEWQ0paTnJ
