Homeroom - Room 18


I hope homeroom with your Room 18 family is your favorite way to start a school day!  Every day we'll begin our Morning Meeting with a time of greeting, we'll use an interactive chart, share what is going on in our lives, and play a fun game together.  This is where we discuss our week's events, hand out field trip permission slips, discuss scheduling changes, and stay informed about what is happening school wide.  We will also meet weekly with our kindergarten buddies in Kate's class.  We'll create and share our hopes
and dreams in the fall, sit down and set goals for ourselves throughout the school year, and learn and grow together.

Guiding Principles for Responsive Classroom

  • Social learning is as important to success as academic learning.
  • We learn best by constructing our own understanding through exploration, discovery, application, and reflection.
  • The
    greatest cognitive growth occurs through social interactions within a supportive community.
  • There is a set of personal/social skills that students need to learn and practice in order to be successful socially and academically:  Cooperation, Assertion, Responsibility, Empathy, and Self-control.
  • Knowing the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual needs of the students we teach is as important as knowing the content we teach.
  • Trust among adults
    is a fundamental necessity for academic and social success in a learning community.
