Yes, rules and procedures must be established, but imagine what it would be like to sit through several classes, if not 5 or 6, where every teacher is talking nonstop about them. I propose a more engaging way to not only disseminate rules and procedures and but also reinforce them. This 17-page editable packet includes a Get to Know You HELLO Game and a game template to help disseminate, in an engaging format for students, what you would like for them to know right away to be successful in your class. It is most appropriate for Grades 3-8; however, I see no reason why it couldn't be used in high school, as well.
This packet includes the following:
*Directions and two Options for playing Hello Get to Know You Game
*Directions and two options for information dissemination of classroom rules, procedures, etc. game
*Directions for Kinesthetic Four Corners Get to Know You and Rules Dissemination Game
*Hello Get to Know You Game Board
*Information Dissemination Game Board
*24 Get to Know You Game Question Stems for Get to Know You Game
24 editable game template stems for rules/procedures/information that you would like for students to know right away
There are three games in this resource. The resource can be edited. The games can be used to reinforce rules throughout the year. The game board can be used to review subject matter content.
