Working on Next Year's Theme... OWLS!
First off, I wanted to make signs for our school rules. We've been a Whole Brain Teaching school for about 3 years now.
Every classroom has the same rules:
Rule 1: Follow Directions Quickly!
Rule 2: Raise your hand for permission to speak!
Rule 3: Raise your hand for permission to leave your seat!
Rule 4: Make smart choices!
Rule 5: Keep your dear teacher happy!
You'd think it might get a bit boring with everyone having the same rules, but it has totally transformed the atmosphere at our school! If I notice a child in another class calling out in line I just look them in the eye and say "What's rule number 2?" and 9/10 it fixes the behavior immediately. Child going too high on the swings? "_____, what's rule number 4??" LOVE me some Whole Brain Teaching!
Here are the signs I made for my room this year:
You can find these rules at my TPT shop!
