Class Promise

 Every new year we come together as a class and decide what we think will help our class be a nice and safe place to learn, work and make friends. As we gave the class the opportunity to work with a partner to come up with some ideas, we decided on the above list. For instance, one idea was "to pick up our friends when they fall" and "not to hit anyone." Those ideas were morphed into "We will be kind to our friends." and "We will use our hands for helping."  Then we added two ideas, "We will raise our hand to speak." and "We will be first time listeners." Next the children drew in their faces, added a safari hat and some hair and they were glued along side our promise. We will chant our Class Promise every morning to remind ourselves about the importance of being a good student and friend in the class room.

The other option is to post the below picture -- that might be a little too scary at this time... :)

But I love Grumpy Cat! Maybe I can use it at home...because I think they listen better while at school!

Love that the children had a hand in creating the class promise. It makes them take ownership & be more willing to keep the promise. The cat poster was picture purr-fect!

I had to laugh out loud at the cat. That might need to start at Kindergarten Roundup...
