A perfect activity for establishing classroom rules, this activity gets even the youngest learners thinking about rules and their consequences. The lesson begins with a discussion and a reading of the poem Humpty Dumpty that gets youngsters thinking about what rules they have at school and home, as well as why they are important. Then youngsters complete an art project about personal differences before ultimately deciding on rules that will work for everyone in their class.
Classroom ManagementEstablishing classroom rules and expectations during the first few days of school is crucial in setting the tone for the entire school year. Exposing individuals to a morning routine, as soon as they walk through the door on that first day of school, is a must! Create the classroom rules together and identify consequences for breaking them. Model and practice classroom transitions, as well as hallway procedures. Ensure pupils know how to be effective listeners and direction followers. Create an encouraging, respectful, and collaborative community in the classroom. Maintain an organized environment throughout the year. Use a collection of classroom management resources to guarantee a successful school year.K - 5th Classroom Support
