Building a Classroom Community

Why build a classroom community…

Children in Cambodia want to feel loved, just like all children. Although, parents in Cambodia often work long hours to provide for their families, therefore finding the time to give their children undivided attention becomes difficult. Cambodian children might often act-out because their needs are not being met at home, of course like all children they crave attention. Building a classroom community not only increases learning but also improves behavior. Children who feel part of a classroom community are more likely to learn in school and less likely to interfere with the progress of others.
