As this chapter focuses on creating a positive classroom community, we would like to see how each of the grade levels accomplish this. Possibly even a what to do vs. a what not do scenario. Be creative, props are strongly encouraged but not mandatory. There is even a little money left over to reimburse if necessary. Nevermind...this is how we keep our jobs fun.
