I have been using this class pledge in place of classroom rules for the past 5 years. It has worked really well for me! We recite the Class Pledge every day during Morning Meeting, with actions to keep students engaged.
I have included a single-page poster, smaller postcard size, and large cutouts to display on a wall or bulletin board. Older students can use the postcards for practice, or they can be sent home to share with families – parents love to hear their child recite this Class Pledge!
