  • Classroom Rules




    On the first day of school, the students and I work together to discuss our first grade classroom rules.  These rules are written to help the students feel safe in their learning environment so that they are always able to do their best. 


    • Listening Bodies - I will listen and follow directions.
    • Raised Hands - I will raise my hand to share ideas.
    • Quiet Mouths - I will use a six-inch voice.
    • Walking Feet - I will walk in school to be safe.
    • Helping Hands - I will use my hands for helping and not hurting.
    • Caring Hearts - I will use kind words.
