Back To School Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY!

Welcome to the Back To School Blog Hop
Today I'm getting together with some other fantastic Teachers Pay Teachers sellers to share some wonderful freebies and a chance to win a gift card and some other fantastic products from Teachers Pay Teachers.
I wanted to share with you a great idea for setting up your classroom rules.  The great thing about this lesson is that I have a set for Kindergarten, and a set for older primary students as well.  Oh yeah, and it's FREE too (my favourite four letter word!)
First you need to read the book David Goes to School by David Shannon.
It's available on Amazon.


In the book David's Teacher say "No Running, No Pushing..."

In my classroom I like to use positive phrases when setting up the classroom rules.

I have 5 classroom rules:

Use nice words
Use a quiet voice
Walk carefully
Share the toys and supplies
Play carefully

These rules have served me well over the past 25 years.  And I really like the fact that they don't use the word 'no'.  So after reading David goes to school, I brainstorm with the class ways they can say what the teacher is telling David, without using the word "no".

FREEBIE – a perfect Back to School lesson about classroom rules for your class.  I love how easy to prep this is, and there’s even the flexibility for K to 3rd Grade.

Then we make the craftivity below to create a bulletin board showing their knowledge of the class rules.  I like it when they use 'I can' statements.  Like "I can walk carefully", or "I can share my toys".

for the instructions and templates.

Then get them to cut out a speech bubble and write down one of the phrases from the class brainstorm.  It can be one of my 5 rules above or any of the other positive statements that the class came up with.
