Including your students in Creating Rules...

I love this book.  I really do!  This book is a great resource from Responsive Classroom and helps you (the teacher) include your students in creating rules in your classroom. 

Every year, we spend the first six weeks of school establishing routines and expectations.  This book helps you guide your students as you create the rules together and make an anchor chart to post for the year. 

Of course, there are many parts to rules including how to follow them...what it should look like, sound like and feel like. 
This video clip shows a real teacher working with her kids!

One of the features include working in cooperative groups to fine tune your work.  I have created a sheet for groups to record their thinking.  You can download it here for free!

Hope you enjoy it!
