[Channel-talklit3to5] Workshop 6

From: Vicky Romano <vromano@knox.edu>
Date: Mon Nov 22 2004 - 16:52:00 EST

Viewing this video produced so many more ideas for beginning of the year
activities. I have always taken students on a tour of the school;
showing them the restrooms and the lunch line, etc. and had them create
an All About Me book to share with others and to add to the classroom
library. In addition, I do interviews with each student about their
reading and send home a reading inventory sheet for families to fill out
so I can get to know about what student interests are outside the classroom.
A couple very important items I will need to add is to have the students
help in creating classroom rules and consequences and establishing times
for Community meetings. Even younger children will be able to help with
creating these important items for the classroom to run smoothly. The
meetings can serve as a time for students to get to know each other and
to deal with revisiting rules and consequences when they do not seem to
be working.
What have the rest of you experienced with children making the rules?
