Class Behavior Expectation Board

So here's my take...

I FINALLY remembered to take a picture of my class behavior expectation board! 
I am so pleased with how it turned out!

It became complete after Constitution Day. I was inspired by a pin from Crystal at Kreative in Kinder to create a "We the Kids" proclamation 
that went with our "In Our Classroom" ideals.

Later in the year my class will have to 
cover the Constitution, Bill of Rights, & the Three Branchesof Government. 
Therefore Constitution Day is a great opportunity to start early! 

We used the book, We the Kids by David Catrow to introduce the Preamble.
We then watched the video of David Catrow explaining in kid friendly terms his idea of what the Preamble means.

Afterwards we used our "In Our Classroom" ideals to 
help form our "We the Kids" Preamble.

Lastly, we talked about rights of students in our class. At the bottom of the board we created a t-chart of their rights but also of their responsibilities. 

We tied in the responsibilities to complement our school wide expectations that our students are: Respectful, Responsible, and Ready to Learn Everyday!

Gold Star Pinner

So here's my take...

It has been about a month since I wrote a post. This past month has been so crazy and hectic that I came to the realization that I just couldn't do it all! 

I was stressing myself out because I couldn't keep up with blogging like some of my favorite bloggers out there. I finally had a conversation with myself and told is okay! 

My goal is once a week to create a blog post but I am putting it out there...don't get upset at me if it becomes once a month!

Well...onto my post for today!

One of my favorite bloggers/pinners out there is Rachel Lynette from Minds in Bloom! She is creating a Gold Star Pinner database of some incredible pinners!

Even though I haven't kept up the blogging this past month, I have kept up my pinning! I have about 2,000 pins with almost 900 followers and growing! Most of my boards and pins are geared to teaching ideas ranging from 2nd to 6th grade. 

I absolutely love Pinterest and am so grateful to other pinners and their awesome ideas! I get inspired all the time! 

If you stop by my blog and there hasn't been a post in awhile, please hop on over to my Pinterest Boards because I am sure you will find some inspiring ideas!

Happy Pinning!
