Chalk Talk: Classroom Rules
In the majority of elementary schools, teachers spend the first couple days of school reviewing and making sure their students understand the classroom rules. However, the rules will likely be more meaningful to them if they have a hand in creating them. Teachers can ask students for specific behaviors and actions that would be appropriate in class. After clarifying student responses, they can word the rules in a way so that students understand them and write them down right then and there. If a student is on the right track with a rule, the teacher can reword it but make it sound as if the child stated a great rule for the class. In addition to using student-created rules, another key to successful rules at the elementary level is the way in which rules are written and stated. They should be understandable to the young students—brief and not too general or too specific. If students are stating various rules that fall under the same umbrella, the teacher should create one generalized rule that they all fit into.
