Classroom Rules

Well, I have survived my 1st week of being a 6th grade teacher. I have to say, I actually like it! I never in a million years thought I would like 6th grade! I always thought I would be teaching the younger graders. But surprisingly enough, I love 6th grade! Before I started I was told that this was the class from you know where. But to tell you the truth they really have been bad for me. Maybe its only just begun though, we shall see!

Anyway, this past week we made up our classroom rules together. On a piece of chart paper we wrote down about 10 good rules that we thought our class should follow. These are the top 5 that I picked. If you get more than 5 then the students will become overwhelmed by rules. After I wrote them, I then had them "pledge" that they would follow the rules by signing their name.

Here is how it turned out!

Have a great day!

My Back 2 School Must haves:

1. RULE OF 3... if you link up I ask that you go and look at the 2 in front of your link and the one after you AND comment... this SPREADS the LOVE for sure!!! and it was a HUGE success last time :)

2. on the B2S must haves... I am completely OK with you promoting one of your store items HERE...
