The article presents information on the role of a successful classroom environment in developing wide range of abilities among children. Most classrooms are filled with children who have a wide range of abilities, and most teachers try to create an environment in which all children--those with and without special needs--thrive. A successful classroom environment will enable children to develop functional-emotional capacities, which are the foundation for all learning and social skills. In order to help children master each of the functional-emotional capacities, teachers should try to use parents' observations about their children.
