Starry Rules Walk slowly to the food line and table Use quiet indoor voices level 1 Clean your area and throw your trash away before you leaveWhen lining up to go to recess, walk to your line and wait quietly


When we go out for recess, we must follow rules in order to stay safe:

No touching, pushing, hitting of any type is allowedRemain in the designated area only. Do not walk to any other place without teachers permissionWhen the teacher blows the whistle, follow procedures to line up and walk in an orderly manner


Why is it important that we dont play in the restroom?

Do you have any questions about this?

Now lets practice this procedure.

It is important to stay quiet in line so you can hear your group called for dismissal on the intercom. Once your group is called you can walk to that area.


During a fire drill-the alarm may sound


When you exit the classroom you will head toward the nearest exit and walk to our designated areaIt is important that you remain completely silent while walking toward the designated area

BrainPOP video-


I created this PowerPoint to be used in future school years. During the first couple of days there is an abundance of information that I need to review with my students about rules, expectations and drills. This is a great way to ensure that I cover everything that I need to and that I stay on track. Plus, by pairing audio and visual learning styles, I can reach all my students.

I did not find this assignment to be difficult but it was very time consuming. I did enjoy the fact that we were able to chose a topic of our choice, which allowed me to create something that I could use in my classroom. I feel that is why I did not mind putting in so much time. Reflection
