About Me

My photo
I am a special educator who has recently relocated to Manila. One of my goals for this year is learn more about early childhood education and special education in the Philippines. I have been visiting schools and therapy centers (among others) and providing info here about them. I do not aim to endorse these different centers/schools, but my intention is to provide information in case some people are interested in learning more about them.

Classroom Rules book

It's been awhile since I've updated the info here.  To make up for it (and while I haven't visited any other schools), I am uploading classroom books that I have made for my present school and some from my old school as well. Hope this helps some of you and maybe it will jump start you into making your own social stories :).  
 I also want to clarify that I downloaded all the pics off the internet.  You can replace them with your own pics (and text) if you like. 

Classroom Rules

My classmates and I love playing in our classroom.

We sing, dance, play, work and have fun all day long.
But that doesn’t mean we get our way all the time. Sometimes we have to do things we  don’t feel like doing (like packing away!). But we do it anyway, because it is the right thing to do.
So what are our classroom rules?
We listen to our teachers and other adults in the classroom.  Our teachers let us know what is going on and what is going to happen next.  They keep us safe and ready to learn.

We use indoor voices.  We can shout as loudly as we can outdoors. But inside the room we have to use indoor voices so it doesn’t get too noisy.
We use walking feet in our classrooms. We can run and jump around outside, but inside we walk so that we don’t bump into each other and get hurt.
We use gentle hands with each other.  We can shake hands, give each other high fives    and back rubs. We can also hug our friends.
We use our words with each other.  Sometimes it is hard to stop and talk when we get very excited or very mad.  We need to remember to use our words so that we can tell others how we feel or what we need.

We pack away after playing. After playing with our toys we need to put them back in their baskets and shelves.  This is so that we don’t trip over them and hurt ourselves. This is also so that the different pieces don’t get lost.  
These are just some of the classroom rules I know of.  Can you think of other classroom rules we should have?
