Together, but six feet apart

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.

About The Author

My name is Shannon Neill and I am currently the Grade 1/2 teacher at AcadeCap. I began my teaching career in 2017 after graduating from McGill University with a Bachelor’s of Education, specialized in French Immersion Pedagogy. Since my first year of teaching, I have been working with Grade 1 and 2 students, from Montreal, to Winnipeg, and now Ottawa, where I have been with AcadeCap since 2018. Working with students in Grade 1 and 2 is definitely something special. The students are curious, honest and so willing to learn and share - I consider myself pretty lucky to be able to learn from my students every day!
