In our kinder class the students around presidents day week interview each other and they discuss what they would like to see happening in their classroom. Afterwards they write their platform. It is interesting for me as a teacher to see our classroom through their eyes. Their needs and wants as well as for the students to see their classroom thought their classmates eyes and be willing to work towards their needs.
The understanding that every action has a re-action. When this ends their present their platforms and we then implement them in our classroom, some will require further iterations, but is of the utmost importance and a delight for them to see their needs/wants/wishes heard and accommodated.
once JAM always JAM!
