Which are your classroom rules?
Everyone says that I should have about 5 rules in first grade. What do you think?
I'm new in first grade and I don't know what to do...

I have four:

Be Kind
Be Safe
Follw Directions
Always Do Your Best!

These seem to be easy for 1st graders to remember and they know exactly what they mean.... plus they are general enough to apply to every situation. This is what works for me!

I use a rules poem and we recite it everday:

We raise our hands to speak
We work quietly at our seats
We use voices soft and sweet
We keep our place tidy and neat
We are helpful, friendly, and fair
We take turns and willingly share.

My children came up with the following classroom rules:

Be nice and kind to everyone.
Be nice to yourself.
Take care of the school and classroom.
Everyone gets to play and learn.

We start with hopes and dreams for the year. Then we list all the rules we would have to follow to make sure all the hopes and dreams could come true. I always get the usual -- no pushing, no fighting, no yelling, no breaking things....

The next day I help the class pare down the list to 3 clear positives. This year we have:

Be nice to everyone.
Listen and do your work.
Take care of everything at school.

and we added a 4th:

Have fun and learn a lot!

I tell them if you follow the other 3 (which fit every scenario) you will be able to follow the 4th!

Every year the rules are slightly different because the kids help craft the words, but they always include a rule each for taking care of yourself, others and the environment.

I have two
1. Keep hands and feet to yourself.
2. Treat others the way you want to be treated.

We talk about what number 2 means and how that is a BIG rule.

Classroom Rules - Need Help!
Old 08-11-2013, 08:00 AM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #17

I use a varied version of the Whole Brain Teaching classroom rules and I'd like to change it slightly this year but I need some help! Here is what I've used in the past:

1. Listen when the teacher is talking
2. Follow directions quickly
3. Raise a quiet hand when you want to speak
4. Keep hands and feet to yourself
5. Be safe. Be honest. Be helpful.

I'm moving from K to First and I feel like rules #4 and #5 need some sprucing up. I'd like #4 to be something more all encompassing about being safe, or using your body to be safe and your works to be kind or something along those lines. Can't figure out how to word what I want to say!?

And rule #5 is just too much. I feel like being helpful and honest are things that will fall under the 7 Habits that we teach more than actual rules so I'm thinking of changing it to the one I saw in the video of the WBT K teacher: Respect yourself, respect others, respect your school. But then 'respect others' kind of cover keeping your body to yourself and stuff...right???

SO confused!!!

My WBT rules
Old 08-11-2013, 08:29 AM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #18

I like your rules. I teach first grade and I love WBT in my class. I review the rules with my students daily and that truly helps. I love when I can just raise a finger for the rule a student might need to work on without having to even say a thing. My rules are tweaked, too. This is what my rules are:

1. Remember to listen and follow directions quickly.
2. Raise my hand for permission to speak.
3. Respect my classmates by treating them kindly.
4. Respect myself by making wise choices.
5. Have fun!

We do actions with each rule similar to what WBT does. It makes saying the rules a bit more fun. I know rule 5 may seem strange but I tell them that when we keep all the other rules then we can have so much fun at school. I guess I just didn't buy into the "keep your dear teacher happy" rule of WBT. I wanted a reward for my students built into the rules.

I changed my rules this year to cover everything with 3 things (I didn't come up the idea - I read it):

1. Be responsible.
2. Be respectful.
3. Be safe.

Seriously, I couldn't think of anything that didn't fit under there. Respectful covers keeping your hands to yourself, not blurting, etc... Responsible covers staying on-task, following directions, etc... Be safe covers swinging on the bathroom doors (yes, happens every year), running in the hall, etc...

This is the first year we tried it, so we'll see how it works.
