I've been doing some research this summer on how important it is to build community in a classroom and in a school. When people feel like they belong and have connections to others in a group they are more productive, healthier and have a greater level of satisfaction than those who are doing it on their own. So, I've been thinking about how to build community in my classroom and I have a few ideas:

I'm going to develop some Week 1 discussions based on these Wonders of the Day. Hopefully my students will see the importance of us becoming a classroom community and will help me with my goal to be more intentional.
