Ann Pelo and Margie Carter, in their new book, From Teaching to Thinking, discuss how practices in a school must align with professed values. They provide examples of practices from Hilltop School that align with their valuing of families. Here are two of these examples:
“We share stories of children’s play and work at Hilltop in journals that travel between home and Hilltop. We invite families to add to their children’s journals, responding to what we’ve written and writing their own entries.
We create space in our classrooms for families to linger, providing adult-sized seating in couches and comfortable chairs where they can snuggle with their children, read their children’s journals, and chat with each other.”
