Students who are allowed to explore, empathize, question, hypothesize, conceptualize, experiment, and evaluate throughout their own learning become productive community members" (Hummell 5). Allowing children to learn to think critically helps them to solve problems and have a logical argument about something they believe is true.

When my teacher takes attendance she is promoting a sense of community. “Morning Meeting motivates children by addressing two human needs: the need to feel a sense of significance and belonging, and the need to have fun” (Kreite, 2014, p. 12). Taking attendance is very important because the children see that they are going to be recognized even when they are not there. I also think that when the teacher had a helper count all of the children in the class, it promotes a sense of others and community because they are able to see that they are one of the members in the classroom. The teacher poses a thoughtful question when she asks the children why they think another child is absent.

Hilary Jo Seitz suggests that teachers can identify and learn about children’s interests, experiences, questions, comments and conversations. Then help, extend and encourage them to follow their interests. After that, construct a plan for an effective learning experience that are connected deeply to their interests.
