Primary classrooms are just four walls until teachers enter. Step by step, teachers build their classrooms: They build the environment, they build relationships with the children, they build partnerships with families, they build classroom communities, and most important, they build competent, successful learners. This acclaimed new book provides the framework and practical strategies primary teachers need to build great classrooms where teaching and learning are a shared responsibility. Building the Primary Classroom puts the best elements of classroom management and curriculum content together in one concise volume.
