Our classroom is a village community of learners that respect and care about each other. We have daily "village" morning meetings where we discuss our thoughts, plans, and dreams. Each villager is treated with love and concern. We use humor, responsibility, safety, and organization to structure our village and our learning. We have our passports posted with examples of our quality work. A student is chosen each day to be our leader. We work together to support and learn from each other. Our village is like a rainbow in that each villager is special and unique in their own way. We learn by using our 8 different intelligences. We are all "smart" in 8 ways. Our brain is honored by starting the day with Brain exercises and drinking water when ever needed through out the day! Our village welcomes visitors and volunteers.!
