I plan on having a about four rules all written in positive language. The rule will be developed
on the first day of class but narrowing down the students’ suggestions. Once the rules have been
selected I will write the rules on a poster to hang in the room and all of the students in my classwill sign the rules like it is a contract. Each student in my class will also be provided with a copyof the classroom rules. The four rules I can think I want to be mentioned would be:
“Be Responsible”, “Be Ready”, and “Be Respectful”.
I would elaborate on the rules by
explaining “Be Safe” covers all of the safety procedures in the classroom in every subject which
includes following rules to ensure no one is harmed. The students in my fifth grade class should
“Be Responsible” coming to class prepare with everything they
need for the day which is part of my idea for Classroom Routines. Students should complete their own homework and classwork
and not cheat by referring to another student’s work. The students in my class should feel
comfortable enough to speak with me or a classmate if they do not understand something sinceschool is a place to learn and it is more than acceptable to ask relevant appropriate questions.
Students will “Be Ready”
by coming to class ready to learn, listen to directions, and stay on task.One of the best ways to be ready is to participate
Students should “Be Respectful” by speaking
in class when it is their turn, listening to what their classmates have to say, and students shouldbe kind to any guests who come to observe what the class is working on, for example anobservation of me teaching. The students may think of other appropriate rules we can apply toour classroom rules, but these four rules cover the basic needs for my classroom managementrule policy.To help my classroom run smoothly I plan on having procedures for student movement inthe classroom for safety and structure of the classroom. The students will enter the classroomand move their popsicle stick with their name on it into the proper lunch choice so I am aware of
