I thought that this would be a great class project to do together at the beginning of the school year. Kids can have input- what are some ways that we can work independently? In partners? Having the arrow added is a great idea as it helps kids to understand expectations as soon as they walk into the classroom. This could also be adapted to other behaviour and classroom management charts- what do we do if we finish early? How can we show our learning?
Food for thought... how do you set up behaviour expectations in your classroom?
