Our Selves, Our Classroom, Our Families

Kimberly Lawrence understands how self-identity and family-identity are key elements of early childhood development. This self and group identity lays the foundation for young children to learn about citizenship and what it means to be part of a community. ŇStar Student of the WeekÓ is an activity that helps students learn about themselves and each other. The class interviews the star student asking questions of their choice. These interview questions are later turned into an article about the star student to integrate reading and writing skills.To begin learning about family identity, families are invited to class and have reading time together to start the day. The familyŐs presence at school helps students understand how their parents are also part of the school community and kicks off the essential question of Ňwhat do we know about familiesÓ.
