Rules in School
Teachers using the Responsive Classroom approach teach children that rules are necessary because they help us make school a safe place where everyone can learn. Responsive Classroom teachers assume that children will need practice as they learn to abide by classroom rules, and they understand that children will make mistakes as they learn. Instead of focusing on punishing rule-breakers, they concentrate on helping children gradually assume more and more responsibility for their own behavior.

Cooperative Learning: One of my favorite structures for getting to know each other! Ensures 100% participation. Easily hold kids accountable by asking them what their partner said. This video shows a great example of how to manage this structure in an upper elementary classroom.

Mind Jar. The goal is that when they are feeling out of control, they shake the jar, then sit and watch the glitter settle in the water. When the glitter settles, we finish our meditation. This one is a really great technique to use in lieu of timeout.

Calm Down Jar. The goal is that when they are feeling out of control, they shake the jar, then sit and watch the glitter settle in the water. When the glitter settles, they can get up. This one is a really great technique to use in lieu of timeout. hmmmmm..... just wonder if they would get in trouble on purpose just to shake the glitter jar..?
Calm down jar. Fine glitter, glitter glue, hot water, food color, jar. Mix glue & water then glitter and coloring in jar. Shake when stressed, angry or kids need a time out. Wait til glitter settles.
Cute idea for kids who need a "cool down" time. Mind Jar. It is really easy to make. The goal is that when they are feeling out of control, they shake the jar, then sit and watch the glitter settle in the water. When the glitter settles, we finish our meditation. This one is a really great technique to use in lieu of timeout.

The rules you made with your students at the beginning of the year will become less effective if you stop talking about them with the children (or if you only talk about them when a rule is broken). This blog post describes how a physical education teachers reviews rules before each new unit.

Carried Away--This teacher used these as informal assessments in a lesson about prefixes and suffixes. However, I like the idea (inspired by another Pinner) of students writing their hopes and dreams in balloons and attaching a picture of themselves soaring with them. Another Pinner had the idea to create an "Oh the Places You Go" Bulletin Board with them! Overall a fun, engaging way to get students to really think about their learning goals for the future!

Kevin Henkes author study: character map posters. for helping first graders recall specific things about Kevin's complex characters. We made two posters, one for Lilly and one for Chrysanthemum. In creating the posters, I prompted the kids to think of characteristics about the mice that made them seem like they were humans! We important things about each character, and how they were different and alike! At the imagination station, the kids wrote advice to Lilly. One said,

When his new neighbors, the otters, move in, Rabbit learns of the guiding principle, "Do unto otters as you would have otters do unto you." He asks himself, "How would I like otters to treat me?" He comes up with some ideas, such as "I'd like otters to be considerate" and "I'd like it if we could share things," which Keller illustrates with some hilarious asides and speech bubbles. You could use this book to start a conversation about how children would like others in the class to treat them.

In describing her 1st day of school, Annie the dog describes her teacher's efforts to lead a rather wild class in a discussion of the rules. Some ideas the animals contribute are "Always keep your tools dry" (from a beaver) and "Just say no to catnip" (from a cat). Use this book to launch a discussion about how the rules the class in the book developed did not really help them learn and enjoy school. Then encourage your class to think about what some more positive and helpful rules would be.

Officer Buckle is dedicated to teaching children about safety rules, but his presentations put children to sleep. That changes when he starts taking his dog Gloria along. Behind his back, Gloria acts out what would happen if children didn't follow his rules. Children start paying attention and become fully engaged in his talks! Use this book to launch a discussion of why rules are necessary, or to practice taking a list of many specific rules and putting similar ones into categories.

Funny and engaging illustrations show what happens when a boy imagines possible answers to the question he keeps hearing from adults: "What if everybody did that?" For instance, we see the fat zoo animals that would result if everyone broke the rule about not feeding them. Reading this book could inspire a great class discussion about why rules exist. And you could also use it to start a conversation about rules that would make your class a safe and happy place.

Reading books to students is a great way to introduce generally accepted morals. For example, "What if Everybody Did That?" is a good book to teach students the need for rules in society and how our actions have consequences. Teachers can lead further class discussion about what morals are and why they are important to establish.

Wisniewski portrays the multitude of rules grown-ups have developed and the reasons they give for those rules as mere pretexts for the real, top-secret story: behind each grown-up rule is an issue of critical importance to our national security. For example: The reason children have to eat their vegetables? Otherwise vegetables might regain world domination! Children will be drawn to the idea that there is an adult conspiracy afoot and to Wisniewski's hilarious explanations.
