No yelling! No pushing! No running in the halls!
Every new school year brings a new set of students into my classroom. And every year, I repeat the rules for my class and the school. It is important to establish the class and school rules ASAP with the children. Instead of just telling the children the rules, I used David Goes to School by David Shannon to help us set expectations through a fun craftivity. We created a Do and Don’t behaviour t-chart using examples of David’s behaviour to help us. We made our own Davids to decorate our hallway and most importantly, we signed a pledge to promise to do our best each and every day.
Thank you to the talented educator, Nancy Vandenbergef, whose ideas helped make this craftivity come alive!
