Building classroom community

Create a positive and inclusive classroom environment by implementing effective strategies to build a strong community. Discover top ideas to foster collaboration, respect, and engagement among students.
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.

Building a classroom community is the most important thing to establish within your classroom. You want your students to have a sense of community and belonging to their school family from Day 1.
