Rules With Class

CLASS RULES: It's good to have a mind of your own. If you don't agree, say so, and explain your thought. Keep asking until you really understand. Try! Its OK to make mistakes. Respect yourself and others. Help each other. Be safe! Use calm voices. Clean up after yourself. Don't waste resources Have fun! A friend of mine's fourth grader came home with these rules from his teacher. Insightful and respectful and a great set of rules to live by! I love that they encourage questioning. If there's one thing I hope to teach my children it is to question. You can have all of the knowledge in the world, but unless you have the wisdom to use it, it won't do you much good.
