At the beginning of the school year, I establish a "community" in my classroom by using books, skits, bucket fillers, activities, discussions, etc. I'm sure many of you do the same! I just had to snap a quick pic because my kiddos work together so well, and I know it is because of establishing that community right away. It makes me smile when I see my kiddos, like this, working together and working out differences with others. The two students here are using "Rock, Paper, Scissors" to make a decision. They have many other ways that decide, as well. It just makes the classroom a happy place when they are working out their problems instead of tattling. What kinds of things do your students do to make decisions when they can't agree on an answer?
