Unit 1, Lesson 4: Rules Are for Everyone (pp. 20-23)
The Big Idea
Framework Concept: Responsibilities Children identify rules and understand the need for rules.
- Have a round robin discussion in which you start by naming one classroom rule. Then, in turn, children in the circle name another classroom rule. When all of the rules have been named, have children name school rules. Finally, have a volunteer tell one reason why rules are important. Try to ensure that all children have had a turn.
Check for Understanding
- Invite children to keep a record for the day of ways that other children follow rules in the classroom. They can draw, make tally marks, or some other record of their observations. At the end of the day, have children share their observations.
- Give children a cut-out shape of a school building. Have them draw a scene inside the building that shows children following classroom and school rules.
