Last week we discussed our hopes and dreams for fourth grade. Each student created a symbol of what he/she hoped would happen this year. We discussed the behaviors necessary in order to reach these goals. At the end of this discussion we had created the following rules:
We will ALWAYS do our best.
We will be respectful to ourselves and to the people around us.
We will be safe and in control of our bodies.
We will be responsible and do our jobs so we can think and learn.
We will be responsible and respectful with materials.
I wrote those rules up and the students will sign them to indicate that they will do their best to follow those rules so that we can all learn and reach our goals. Class Dojo will reflect both our successes with these rules and our need for reminders.
Such a great start! I am looking forward to the weeks to come!
