Classroom rules are so important! Rules are kind of like the flour in a cookie-without it your classroom will fall flat. Students will flourish when there are high, yet attainable expectations that are set in love and held with consistency. I love these “The 3 Be’s” rules because they are, what I consider, rules for life! They are rules I want to live by, and that I want my students to live by both in and outside of the classroom. The best thing is that everything I do in my classroom falls under these rules. Whether it’s how we come to the carpet, or how to take care of listening center, or what to do when you have conflict with a friend–everything falls under these 3 core rules and values of our classroom.
Rule #1-Be ready to listen and to learn
Rule #2-Be respectful, treat others the way that you want to be treated
Rule #3-Be responsible, make good choices
Kinesthetic movement is invaluable in our classrooms! It helps students remember and retain information better, and it is also fun! I created gestures to go along with each of the rules and have explained how to do them in this video. I also explain more about how these rules are rules for life!
I hope that these rules are a great addition to your classroom expectations and management! Let me know if you have any questions!
