Exploring FCPSOn In the Classroom
What do you see when you walk into an FCPSOn classroom? You might see students enjoying flexible seating by sitting at a desk, on a ball, or even on the floor. You might see students collaborating at a computer screen while others are walking the room, measuring and exploring. We spent two days at Poplar Tree Elementary, one of the FCPSOn pilot schools to explore what a typical day looks like in several different classrooms. Click on any of the classrooms to explore and learn more and consider attending an upcoming community meeting.
