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
Share the toys and supplies
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".
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.
