Classroom Risk Audit

  1. 1. Classroom Risk Audit Heidi Beatty ELPA 940 April 22, 2007
  2. 2. Shorewood School Room 42 <ul><li>K/1 Classroom </li></ul><ul><li>Currently accommodates two teachers and 29 students </li></ul><ul><li>5 main tables for group work and large group projects </li></ul><ul><li>A variety of centers around the room for small group work </li></ul><ul><li>Typical kindergarten areas like blocks, house area and art center </li></ul><ul><li>Large open area for controlled gross motor games or large group activities </li></ul>
  3. 3. Duty 1: Duty to Supervise <ul><li>It is my duty to be able to see all parts of my classroom clearly to supervise student work </li></ul><ul><li>The design of the quiet reading section of the room makes it difficult to see all the kids if I am sitting in the rocking chair due to the height of the piano and bookshelves. I do not sit here often, but this should be rearranged for next year so that all lines of sight are open. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Supervision during small group <ul><li>This table is where I do small group reading lessons. </li></ul><ul><li>It is located near the front corner of the room so that I have a clear view of the other students working at centers. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Duty 2: Duty to warn others of known hazards or risks <ul><li>It is my duty to inform children of dangers in the classroom </li></ul><ul><li>This shelf, located near my block area, is easily tipped over. I talk to my class about not leaning on or against the shelf. It has been tipped over a couple times by a student. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Cubbie area <ul><li>Another known hazard area is the cubbies, where kids hang their coats and boots. </li></ul><ul><li>In the winter, the floor can get slippery from snow and wet boots so we talk about making sure to clean off their feet before entering and to walk so they do not slip. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Duty 3: Duty to properly instruct others on issues of safety <ul><li>It is my duty to give students clear instructions so that they work and play safely. </li></ul><ul><li>We have rules for the block area that limit the height of block structures and ensure that students are not throwing blocks or using them dangerously </li></ul>
  8. 8. Open spaces <ul><li>There are lots of large open spaces in the classroom, especially around the tables. These spaces are kept open to allow kids to have ample space to work during centers and free choice </li></ul><ul><li>I talk with my students about not running in those spaces and to keep them free of obstructions to allow for movement throughout the room </li></ul>
  9. 9. Duty 4: Duty to maintain a hazard free environment <ul><li>It is my duty to ensure the students in my classroom stay away from potential hazards </li></ul><ul><li>These pipes in my room are very intriguing for kids to want to climb. I am constantly reminding students that it is not safe to climb them </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Thanks </li></ul><ul><li>for </li></ul><ul><li>visiting! </li></ul>
