Storyboard Text

  • Building Our Learning Community Rules and Consequences
  • "Welcome to the fifth grade! We are going to learn many new things together this year, but before we get started, let's establish some ground rules."
  • "Our rules and consequences are up on the wall on these posters. Who can read the first rule out loud, please?"
  • RULES 1. When somebody is speaking, look at them and listen quietly. 2. Before you speak, raise your hand and wait to be called on. 3. Keep your hands and feet to yourself. 4. Ask for permission before using someone else’s materials. 5. Treat yourself, your peers, and your environment with respect.
  • "Great, now that we've heard all of the rules, let's read the consequences. This is what happens when someone doesn't follow the rules."
  • Logical Consequences: 1. You break it, you fix it 2. Loss of privilege 3. Thinking time Binder for Reminders: After two warnings, you will need to sign the binder. If you sign the binder 3 times in one week, then you write a letter home.
  • "It's very important that everyone understands and agrees with these rules and consequences so that we can have a positive experience together. Are there any questions about these rules and consequences? Is anything unclear? Should we add anything?"
  • Building Our Learning Community Rules and Consequences
  • "Thank you for sharing, I appreciate your participation! Now we're going to do a group activity. But before we begin, let's talk about our guidelines for working in groups. For example, when we work in groups, we must use quiet voices so that only our teammates can hear us. We also want to allow one person to speak at a time, and when they are speaking, we are looking at them and listening quietly. Who can think of another guideline? I will write them on the board."
  • "Now that we all understand how to behave in a group activity, let's begin! Each table group will make and perform a skit that illustrates one of the rules and what might happen if someone breaks it. You will have 10 minutes to prepare and 2-3 minutes to perform."
