Over the first couple of weeks of school, building a strong classroom community is an important aspect to create a safe learning environment for the students. This year, more than any other year, students have been working extra hard to build a sense of community as they are sitting apart and physical distancing. We created a classroom puzzle, where each student received a puzzle piece not knowing where it fit. They created their pieces to reflect themselves. Once all pieces were created, we put the puzzle together to create the whole picture that represents our class members.
