Fun November Activities for Building Classroom Community – Learning Missions!
Are your kiddos getting antsy? Give them a Learning Mission!
Build your classroom community with these short, fun, structured activities to get your students up and moving and working with their classmates! These learning missions make great warm-ups for reading, writing, and math! They are perfect for morning work, when you have a few extra minutes between teaching, or when your kiddos just need a break to move and talk to their classmates!
Add the Chef’s Hat craft, the spoon and fork pointer craft, and a clipboard, and make it “official!” The kiddos eat it up!
🌟 The learning missions ask the students to work with other students in the class to finish the activity. They should take 10-15 minutes depending on the learning mission.
