Picture book for introducing rules

I'm looking for a good picture book to read before I introduce rules and consequences for our classroom. I've read Officer Buckle and Gloria in the past but was wanting to find something new.

TIA

Is that where she loves the teacher and school until she brings her purse to school and gets in trouble?

Mean Jean, Recess Queen - for rules about treating others nicely
King of the Playground - rules about bullying
Enemy Pie - treating others respectfully
Lilly's Plastic Purpose - Consequences of toys and following directions
A Bad Case of Tattle Tongue - to show when it is appropriate to tell and when it is not appropriate to tell

How to Lose All Your Friends
Old 07-23-2010, 04:26 AM

I like "How to Lose All Your Friends" by Nancy Carlson... I think I just love the title :-)

This reverse etiquette book advises readers to never smile or share; to be a bully and whine; to tattle and be a poor sport. Each "rule" offers specific examples and is illustrated with brightly colored pictures. While children are always interested in stories showing the complications and potential pitfalls of social interactions, this plotless treatment is not likely to hold much appeal for them. Also, it's unfortunate that "tattling" is presented as undesirable.

Love the list! I also use The Library Dragon- I use it before going over the rules about how to treat the books in my classroom library.

I also use Lily and the purple plastic purse...

in the first week of school not to teach rules, but to teach more about being tolerant, learning problems in school, bullying, sympathy, etc...I read Thank You Mr Falker by patricia polacco

We make our own

When we go over the rules we make our own book. I will review rule #1 and THEY come up with examples of the rule, and so on for all the rules. We have one example for every student and I type them, print them and the kids illustrate them. We then bind our own book (laminate and staple) and review it everyday the first week. I then have "proof" that the students know the rules and how to follow them. I know that's not exactly what you were asking but I thought I'd share.

Great ideas..

I also use Do Unto Otters and Mr. Falker!!

Accepting and Building....

I use The Dot and Ish by Peter Reynolds. This helps with writing and art. [Growing and becoming better...they always seem to find more in each one..like supporting a friend.]

Reading...
I use Library Lion for our library rules. The Best Place to Read [I think, it's at school] and A Quiet Place for respecting each others space and finding a place to focus.

Being Nice...
How to Fill a Bucket, How Full is Your Bucket...the take from the Adult book from Strength finders is a great book too. I know some people incorporate this more...we just use it as a good discussion book.

Chrysanthemum

For a class with ELL students.... The Name Jar.

I like the Mrs. Malarkey books...for Field Trips, Having a Sub, State Testing...they don't really teach it..but jumping off point for good discussions.
