Classroom community is one of the most vital parts of a classroom.
At the beginning of the year, it is so valuable to spend time establishing a community and getting to know your students.
I spend *almost* as much time building my community as I do establishing routines.
I say almost, because sometimes these two overlap within each other.
Teaching procedures, setting expectations, and establishing rules for the classroom also ties in with taking care of and promoting a positive classroom community.
 
Ellen Javernick's use of what could be construed as a small bending of rules to establish her purpose is so relatable to our kiddos.
Basically when a little boy bends rules and does not follow expectations, people around him pose the question, "What if Everybody Did That?"
Glance through the preview below, but you can click on any of the pictures to head over to Amazon and grab a copy!
