I really like this article and found it resigning. Last year, in the first year, we worked to know what we need to do in school and what is learning? The students enjoyed sharing their dream environment in the classroom. We dropped everything and recorded all their proposals. Like the second set of rules, most student exchanges were the right thing not to do. As a team of teachers, we grouped the was-non-to`s into three simple titles, the students helped with sorting. We concluded three essential agreements for space, which included almost all the proposals, listened, cared for, learned. These three words were then used as questions: “Did you pay attention when you resorted to Fred`s work? Did you listen when Jane asked to play?, What did you learn here?`. This year I will be in fourth year and I hope to use the same format to establish the essential agreements, but I hope to have stronger conditions. I read books every day and choose stories that illustrate how children deal with different emotions and issues.
We talk about the stories and students share their connections. These books for class meetings are great for conveying social skills and leading those important conversations. I hope this and future contribution in this series will give you lessons and ideas that are easy to implement today in your classroom. I hope you`ll see the benefits of how your students interact, deal with the ups and downs of their day, and make decisions in the classroom and playground. In addition, you will see the many small bodies in your classroom become full, peaceful, friendly and strong bodies. Use this template as inspiration to create or revise your own teaching conventions. A shared and documented understanding of how you will serve and support all learners eliminates confusion about behaviors and procedures in the classroom and helps create an atmosphere of trust and support between students and maximize learning time. The advantage of essential agreements is to define a culture of community learning, determined by the learners of that community. A class contract is an agreement between the learner and the teacher to comply with certain rules and standards. It applies to both learners and the teacher and is established at the beginning of the course.
Hi, Cindi. It`s because of you and what your beliefs have to do with behavioral management. I prefer to use positive strategies rather than punitive ones. I would discuss with them, check the expectations and establish together an improvement plan. We also have weekly class meetings to check expectations and what works and what doesn`t. These kinds of meetings help us tremendously. I hope it helps. Teachers are always supposed to set standards in a classroom. Teaching students to be self-disciplined and to learn respect is to become a science student. Class chords can make a class extremely awesome. Class chords can cause anyone to act and think in the same way as their teacher.
The ten opportunities you have created by Ms. Sackson are very important for an educational process. You mentioned that you need to spend time before you establish your beliefs about learning. This was very important for a person who takes his time before hurrying to do his job. Expectations in the classroom help students develop social responsibility. Try to create together a class contract with the children`s ideas. Okay – all the way. Many teachers impose their learning needs and experiences on those of their classroom. My starting point for exploring this approach was Barbara Prashnig and her work. Here is the link to their article “10 False Beliefs about Learning.
