Developing Relationships Through Rituals & Routines

The birthday child would get a crown and be sworn in as King or Queen for the day. I never thought too much about the titles chosen. That was until one of my students shared that they didn’t feel like they wanted to be either of those choices. They felt like they would like to be a royal dragon for the day.

This was an eye-opening event in my teaching career. If I really wanted to develop a classroom where everyone felt like they had a voice I needed to be more flexible in my thinking.
