Let's Get Started

 


Rules and Regulations

KIS = Keep It Simple

     Rules need to be "Little By Little"
     Only 10 rules. Some funny, some practical.
     Posted Rules versus implied rules
          -Posted rules:
               Classroom Rules
               iPod Rules
         - Implied Rules 
               Happen as they occur, not a formal announcement. 
               Each day have a new implied rule until you are through with them
         -Culture of "inner circle"
               Have students who are also passionate and gifted/talented be "assistant teachers"
               Areas of the room are "off limits" thats where you put expensive supplies

Day One

     Classroom Rules

 

Day Two

     What day is it? Left Brain day versus Right Brain day

 

Day Three, for every gadget there is a rule...

     Start implied rules - "A rule a day keeps the discipline at bay"

     If you start with a tight ship, you never have to reteach
