Every classroom has rules. My first year of teaching, we made them up as a class... the usual "Golden Rule".
My second year of teaching, I was SUPER into Whole Brain Teaching:
1. Follow Directions Quickly
2. Raise Your Hand for Permission to Speak
3. Raise Your Hand for Permission to Leave Your Seat
4. Make Smart Choices
5. Keep Your Dear Teacher Happy****Disclaimer!!! This is NOT me!!!! I just YouTubed a video!
Well, those five rules were GREAT! My favorite is number 5 :)
This year, I have a FABULOUS class... it's scary sometimes how good and smart they are. I introduced the five WBT rules in the beginning of the year and I occasionally use them (not as much as I did last year!).
I still have them up on my wall though!
If you haven't checked out WBT do it RIGHT NOW! It's amazing!
Like I said, I haven't used it that much this year but they have strategies that I use daily (Teach-OK!)
