Relationships are KEY!
Learning is fun, empowering and successful especially if relationships are involved. Having a relationship with my students is important! Making sure that I come along side each and every one of them to make sure that they feel like they are able to achieve any goal we set within our classroom. Relationships not only with me but also with our entire community here at Central Lyon is a big factor that helps contribute to our love for learning. Each month we have fourth grade reading buddies attend our classroom and rotate between our kindergarten rooms. We love this time because it gives an opportunity for leadership, conversation, growth in learning and much more. We love to walk around and listen to 4th graders build their fluency and comprehension on stories that they are reading to our kinders. We also love to see our kinders learn from their peers, build a better understanding on how to interact with others, and also build in their comprehension skills as our fourth graders do an excellent job of asking questions. This is something we do all school year and truly appreciate the time well spent with our older elementary students.
