1. We keep our hands, feet, and all objects to ourselves.
2. We listen when others are speaking.
3. We treat others with kindness and respect.
4. We always try our best!
I chose these rules because they are what I feel is most important for a positive and productive learning environment. I like that they are simple yet clear. Then I found this picture below on pinterest.
I don't think that it is necessary to add all of the above statements into my classroom rules, even though I agree with all of the thirteen statements. So what I think I will do is print the poster, display it in the classroom and talk about all of the good points.
But, I have a question for you. What are your classroom rules? Do you have something that I don't? Just wondering. Please share your thoughts. I can't wait to hear about your rules!
