If you are looking for a way to make classroom rules that give your students ownership, then you have come to the right place!
#OurClass#OurRules is a kit to help you work with your students in the beginning of the year to come up with a set of simple rules that will have meaning for all of you. In the past, I made rules ahead of time and went over them with my students. In my experience, I have found that letting the students be a part of this important process really helps them see the meaning in rules and it makes them more than just a poster you hang on the wall and never look at again!
In this set, you will find:
-teacher instructions for 5 class meetings where you create and fine-tune the rules together
-pages that can be projected on the smartboard for listing ideas (or you are welcome to make an anchor chart for this purpose)
-3 pages of student activities
-My goals for this year
-About one rule and why it is important
-A picture of me following one of #OurRules
-Headings for making your own anchor chart and posting your rules (many color choices)
-Large bulletin board letters for making a beginning-of-year bulletin board showing your student’ goals
We spend a long time on our rules in the first few weeks, but I am always so glad we did! I hope you enjoy using this with your students!
