Rules help us know where the limits are so that we can avoid crossing them. Rules also help create a sense of security in individuals, families and society. For example, how many of us would be willing to travel on a city street without rules to determine how old a driver must be and how those drivers should behave on the road?
Our Classroom Rules
There are only 5 rules for our classroom. They should be easy to remember Insha'Allah. They are:
- Keep hands, feet, and objects to yourself.
- Do not use hurtful/bad language.
- Wait for permission to speak.
- Wait for permission to leave your seat.
- Follow directions the first time they are given.
Students cannot learn when there is chaos in the classroom. They cannot learn when they are being bullied. They cannot learn when other students are wandering around the room distracting them. And most students find it difficult to concentrate in a noisy environment. Students are not getting a quality education when there is no disciple in the classroom.
Hopefully, all students will behave themselves. In case they don't, there are consequences to breaking a class rules such as loosing part or all of a play break.
There is also a rewards system for proper behavior in the classroom such as table points, nice notes, citizenship awards, and game day.
