Community classrooms take one's students out of the classroom for a unique and inviting learning experience. This change in environments can often engage learners in complementary learning activities that reinforce learner outcomes. How does one create a Community Classroom? How do we integrate multiple learner outcomes throughout the day at the community classroom location?  What are some ideas for a "park-like" location, based on one's grade level outcomes? These are all questions that will be explored and answered through first hand collaborative experience in sharing ideas and creating experiences, for example, at any park.

The idea of having a day prepared for students in a community classroom and filled with engaging, purposeful activities sounds wonderful yet many teachers may never have the time to explore this option and share this process. This session will also allow teachers to come away with a prepared community classroom day based on their grade that could be implemented immediately (google doc). Multiple learner outcomes from multiple content areas will be encouraged. We, as educators, have a collective knowledge that is exciting! Putting this collective knowledge of experiences, activities, games, explorations, etc. together in a comprehensive experiential learning day for students gives another option for learning. Curriculum will be available to reference and sample community classroom activities will be shared. Participants are encouraged to bring a device to work on with google docs.
