One of our class rules is "Always Do Your Best." I wanted students to understand exactly what that means in a school setting. To me, that includes being a great listener, participating, getting started right away to build stamina, focusing on your work and ignoring distractions, staying on task when working with your friends, raising your hand and asking for help, taking your time and being proud of your work, cleaning up after yourself, and remembering your class materials.
In my classroom I shared this story on the smart board several times, and then students worked to color and read their own copy. These mini books now stay in their book bins and have become a favorite independent read!
I have included a color copy as well as a black and white copy. I hope you find this product as helpful as I have.
