There were some wonderful ideas for incorporating the families' presence in the classroom environment at Rosa Parks Preschool. I think it is so comforting and homey for the children to see their families displayed in the classroom. It makes a strong statement of mutual support and commitment to the child.
Hopes and Dreams Loom: I love. this. so. much! I have a warm spot in my heart for woven pieces. The parent wrote their hopes and dreams for their child on a ribbon and wove it into the loom. This is so wonderful.
I would include the teacher's hopes and dreams for the students.
