One key to a successful start to our year is that students are aware and understand my expectations of them as students in my classroom. We spend several weeks practicing these expectations over and over and revisit them often throughout the year. I like to explain to my students that we are a family in our class and in order for our family to work together and have a successful year we have rules that we all need to follow. We read several books on how to be a good classmate and have a class discussion on what we need to do for our class to be successful. I have listed below our general class rules that we will all be expected to follow:
We will listen and follow directions
We will be nice to others
We will use good manners
We will raise our hand to talk
We will take care of our things
We will do our best EVERY DAY!
