Class Promise

At the beginning of the school year, we will brainstorm a list of appropriate school rules and create a class promise.

The following is a list of promises that are often used in my classroom:

  1. Be kind to others.
  2. Use your hands for help and love.
  3. Treat our class objects safely.
  4. Raise your hand to share your thoughts.
  5. Follow directions.
  6. Make smart choices.
  7. Freeze when the bell rings.
  8. Clean up after yourself.
  9. Walking feet are used inside.
  10. HAVE FUN!

Our class will be our “family away from home”, so we all have to work together to become caring, safe, and cooperative learners. I will encourage respect for all, patience with others, self-control, safe behaviors, and active listening skills. We are all learners and we will try our best. We all make mistakes, and we can learn from our mistakes. Every day brings a fresh new beginning to learn! Every child in our class will receive guidance in making good decisions about their behavior. We will learn in a positive, nurturing classroom environment. It is important for each child to develop self-regulation, impulse-control, independence, good work habits, and skills to begin to resolve conflicts independently. I appreciate families’ support in reinforcing our classroom rules. Together we can work together to have a successful and joyous kindergarten year!
