Two versions of the class promises. These promises are stated in positive language and promote classroom community. One version is class centered language and the other version is student centered language. I plan to post the class rules and then use the student centered posters as a positive behavior clip chart!
Class promises include:
*We will respect all people, property and thoughts.
*We will use all equipment and materials properly.
*We will keep body parts, objects, and unkind words to ourselves.
*We will be ready to learn everyday and always do our personal best.
*We will always be proud of our actions and efforts.
Also included is a ½ page black and white printable booklet which will allow for discussion among your class as to how they can show these promises in action. This printable “class promises” booklet lends itself to the “Talk it Out” discussion starter questions. I plan to use this as a whole group in the first few days of school. As a class, we will determine what is appropriate for each class promise.
