This unit is the reason that I sleep soundly the night before the first day of school and go to greet my new class without butterflies in my tummy! I developed this engaging method of introducing classroom rules years ago and used it successfully every year since. It requires no special preparation or materials. Through unique storytelling and an engaging five minute class pantomime, your students will enjoy discovering why rules are necessary and will eagerly contribute to listing rules for the classroom. Students who have input are more likely to follow the rules. Included is a manners poster. I believe so strongly that this will get your year off to a great start that I am pricing this eight page packet low to share it with as many teachers as possible. For the perfect companion to this unit, check out my Everyone Needs Rules booklet for only $1.This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.
