Pros: THUMBS UP FROM OSAGE COUNTY FIRST GRADE
Cons: NONE NOTED
Note: as with most of the items I review in this category the items are not toys, games, game pieces, game boards, game devices, or cards to use in game apparatus, nor are they office materials per se, rather these are classroom type materials created by educational publishers and intended for use with Early Childhood, primary and older age students in a classroom or home school environment.
This product is a bordered, lined, blank Class Rules chart
Creative Teaching Press, Dots on Turquoise Class Rules Chart measuring 17 x 22 inches includes activities and reproducibles.
This handy write on, erase, reusable poster is planned for classroom usage. Crafted of durable card stock type paper generated from quality raw materials carefully chosen to meet federal and industry standards regarding durability, safety and use around children, the paper is printed using non hazardous inks in child pleasing, eye catching shades.
A particularly handsome poster, the centered area is white, lined for ease of writing , and bordered first with a thin turquoise line, followed by a slotted lined and finally a wide turquoise border upon which is sprinkled myriad dots in magenta, white, orange, blue, yellow.
The words class rules continue the color palette theme. c is turquoise splashed with paisley, l is chartreuse splashed with pale dots, a is multi hued stripes, s is outlined in café au lait, while the second s is pale blue dotted with magenta, r is teal outlined in magenta and sprinkled with multiple dots, u is pale blue with a dark, meandering line filled with dots, l is a multi stripe, e is magenta outline with a dotted pink thin line e and s is turquoise with multi tone dots.
I like realistically priced, student pleasing, teacher affordable materials when searching for items for my Osage County First Grade. I find this powerfully colored chart to be especially valuable in helping Little Learners begin to formulate the rules for our class to use. It is important for Little Learners to understand the reason for boundaries in behavior. Boundaries help make it easier to do what is needed in order to accomplish what must be done in the classroom, and to do it with everyone having the same opportunity for praise and reward.
While I do guide the discussion, and each year move the thinking of Little Learners in the direction I want the rules to take, the rules are never more than 4, and state simply, Listen, Work, No hitting, and No cussing. These are the basics for our classroom.
During the beginning weeks of the new school year I teach procedure for lining up, walking in corridors, doing work, and the like. Procedures are simply how we accomplish what we need get accomplished in order to move quietly in hallways, and getting done more successfully and are not rules.
Rules are the system we live by, whether as children or as adults, rules are the methodology our society uses to even the playing field, give everyone equal opportunity and establish for everyone the same boundaries in order to help our society, whether classroom or society as a whole, remain a place where everyone knows what is expected and acceptable behavior and what is not. Clearly delineating the boundaries helps to assure each child understand what is expected of him in order to do what is – right - and what is not.
Made of poster paper, I laminated the chart, as I do most similar teaching aids to assure longer classroom life.
