Do you need help guiding your students to develop classroom expectations together? I find that giving my students situations to draw conclusions from helps them to create expectations that set our class up for a year of success.
Use the cards in this file to group students and have them identify classroom expectations that would stop these situations from happening. This is a great activity for the beginning of the year!
You can springboard from these expectations easily into creating a classroom contract that your students sign and live by for the coming year.
