This is a basic template of our "Yes, Class! No, Class!" book we made to reinforce the rules and expectations of class. We read "No, David!" first, and then I asked students to demonstrate the right and wrong way to do things for the book. Students who especially liked breaking a certain rule were the stars of that page, and it really prevented a lot of misbehavior! Since it's a pattern book, preschoolers can "read" it. It helps students learn each others' names, and it eliminates the need for rules. I did a version for indoor expectations and a version for outdoor expectations.
Indoor Expectation Ideas:
Running v walking
dirty hands v washing hands
jackets/play clothes on floor v hanging in cubbies
taking v sharing
dropping sensory items on the floor v keeping them in the containers
leaving the computers on to your game v resetting the computer screen
being rambunctious in the library v reading quietly
Outdoor Expectation Ideas:
pushing v hugging
going up the slide v down the slide
keeping equipment for yourself v sharing equipment
Excluding friends v including friends
using specific equipment properly (jump ropes, cones, etc).
