Hi! It is important to make rules known to students and parents the first week of school. Why not make this experience ENGAGING! This entire back to school classroom rules resource, which outlines three different activity options, is editable. Insert your classroom rules into one of the blank puzzle design templates, or use one of the completed designs found in the resource. Furthermore, included is a puzzle activity which enlists students help in creating classroom rules. All activities are appropriate for Grades 1-8 and can be implemented as cooperative learning activities. The activities can be made kinesthetic by giving each student one puzzle piece containing one of your classroom rules and then having each student locate others who hold the remaining pieces needed to complete their puzzle. Copy the puzzle containing your classroom rules and have students place it in the front of their notebooks and/or post several copies printed in color on your bulletin boards. All of the puzzles and activities can be used throughout the school year to reinforce your rules as well as other positive behaviors. Hope you find this resource useful. Enjoy the upcoming school year, and all the best to you and your students. Click here if you would like to visit my store to view other back to school resources.
