As part of the new school year routines, we created our Essential Agreements, or in other words, classroom rules. I have to say that this group is really expert in doing this... yea previous PYP teachers! Our 5 classroom rules are: Follow the Golden Rule, Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible and Have Fun! I really love the first and last ones and it is amazing that the kids came up with these themselves.
After we had our rules, we created outlines of our hands and designed them to represent us. The instruction was to use drawings, patterns and images so that other people could infer information about you. It was a really fun lesson and it made a beautiful bulletin board.
