3's Relationship Building & Community
Teachers encourage community building in the classroom by encouraging children to help one another and collaborate in group activities such as art, collage making or building.
Activities that support development:
- Family unit - Children feel pride in sharing their own family traditions and learn that there are many types of families.
- Celebrating holidays around the world and inviting families in to share traditions, celebrations, food, art and books
- Celebrating seasons, which helps create bonds through the sharing of a familiar experience
- Classroom clean-up (“We all share this room; we all take responsibility for keeping it clean.”)
