Every year that I walk into a classroom, I have the same goal: build our class into warm, welcoming community that functions like a great, big extended family. We build classroom traditions and routine that help us to achieve this community, and it has worked year after year! Here are some of my favorite tried and true activities to help build community in an upper elementary (third, fourth, fifth) grade classroom.

So this year, after learning more about Responsive Classroom and building classroom community, I…

Add this FREE Friday routine to your classroom to help students reflect on the positive moments of the week and look forward to the next. ⁠ @revenge.of.the.6th shared this picture, and she hangs them up on a ring and keeps them on display in the class. Each Friday, they add the new one on top. At the end of the year, they have a year of reflections! ⁠ You can find this for FREE in my blog post about building a classroom community. ⁠ ⁠ #classroomcommunity #backtoschool

Sprinkle the important stuff throughout the first weeks. Introduce homework policies when kids do homework for the first time, and they'll better remember it anyway. Instead of syllabus and policy review, I spend the first days of school engaging my students in building THEIR classroom community. I am a part…
