After parents and teachers, our classroom environment becomes known as the Third Teacher. Our classrooms become interactive learning spaces where children and teachers co-construct Learning Walls that students can refer to at any time to increase their understanding of what they are learning and where they are at with their learning. The Third Teacher prompts can include anchor charts, unpacked Learning Intentions, co-constructed Success Criteria, Learning Walls with “big idea thinking,” student work samples and Bump It Up Walls.
It has been lovely seeing these Learning Walls in action around our school with our students actively engaging with them to support their learning.
