fifth grade classroom rules | Upper Grades Are Awesome: Day Two - Class Rules and Time Capsules

"class rules with student signatures -- first day of school" . this is a good idea. I love the idea of having the kids sign it.

Your Job -vs- My Job: This is a great back to school activity.  We met up at the small group table and discussed jobs that students might have, and the jobs a teacher has to do. We discussed what would happen if we didn't do these things? Once we created our anchor chart we all signed it as a contract reminding ourselves of the importance of being responsible and doing our jobs in the classroom.

I like this set up for the desks in the classroom because none of the desks are side by side, allowing each student have their own personal space.  When desks are side by side, or students share table space, it is much easier for bickering to occur over one's personal space.  This way, students cannot put their objects on others desks.  -Michael Hecht

Desk set-up: none of the desks are side by side, allowing each student have their own personal space but still work collaboratively when appropriate. When desks are side by side, or students share table space, it is much easier for issues to arise.

The Behavior Alert shows the rules that were broken, and the students, as well as their parents, need to sign this. This is a great way for the parents to track their children's behavior and the teachers can also alert the parents if there are issues.

I am going to do a class mission statement and have all the kids sign. But I like the idea of having them trace their hand and put it on the poster as well.
