At RM Grauer Elementary we have been exploring ways to make our learning environments more responsive to the needs of the students in each classroom and across the school. Creating spaces that support greater student ownership of and engagement in learning. This work has begun to take our classrooms in different directions. The explorations within the school and individual classrooms have been guided by these questions:
What makes Kindergarten (Div 7) a special place to learn?
How does a class engage in playful inquiry?
How does our learning environment foster collaboration and creativity?
How can a learning space inspire a passion for life-long learning?
How does the organization of a learning space facilitate collaboration and spark curiousity amongst students?
