Rules to Live By

Our First "Marker Talk"

Our class used our hopes and dreams to brainstorm class rules we need to live by as a community. We did a “marker talk” to help us think together without talking out loud. After a few sessions, we narrowed it down to 5 rules. We finally voted on 4 final rules that we think cover everything we need to remember in order to live, learn, and work as a community in a healthy and respectful way.

Treat the world and everything in it the way you want to be treated. 

Make good choices to help the community.

Keep your mind and body healthy.

Be prepared to learn anything.

I especially love these class rules because they can remind us all about the way to live all the time, inside the classroom and out. Great job fourth grade!
