Explain what rules are, then share some examples like taking turns, treating others kindly, and keeping the classroom clean and tidy. Share some more examples. You may choose to take this time to create your own list of rules with your students. After this, have students drag the happy face to the rules we should follow, and a sad face to the rules that we should not follow if we want to have a good day. Next, have them match the pictures to the rules by dragging them into the correct boxes. Discuss how rules are made. Explain that a classroom decides on a rule together. Sometimes, you can even vote on a rule you think is important! The teacher and principal communicate these rules to the students. Finally, explain that rules are important for a number of reasons: keeping students safe, keeping the classroom neat, and keeping students focused on learning.
