What does a PYP Classroom at PWE look like?

Part of our feedback from our site visitors back in October was that they didn’t see consistency across classes when it came to our classrooms looking like PYP classrooms – but, what does a PYP classroom look like at Prairie Waters? Today we are going to collaborate and do a sample, mini inquiry into this question with the end goal of generating an Essential Agreement for what a PWE PYP classroom looks like.

We’re going to combine the next 2 steps in the inquiry cycle, just due to time. Head on over to our Today’s Meet chat, and share a bit about what else you think should be included in a PYP classroom after taking a look at some other Essential Agreements. Do you still have questions, or want to know more? Share those on our chat as well!
