Class Promise

This week we worked on our class promise. After brainstorming ideas with the students on what they thought was important to help the class run smoothly, we came up a condensed version and charted the results. For example, if  a child said "It's not nice to hit someone" or "Don't talk mean to people", it was condensed to "I am responsible for my actions." The other promises are: "I do what is asked the first time.";  "I share with others."; and "I take care of school property."  The activity culminated with each child making a paper doll of themselves (with a chef's hat, of course) and we placed them around the promise. These few rules cover a lot of territory and are referred to throughout the day because we all want to be good school citizens.
