Inspired by the recent subway art trend, I took my 5 classroom rules and created fun, colorful posters for classroom display.
These posters are my 5...that is, my five non-negotiable rules in my classroom. The Whole Brain Teaching rules didn’t quite fit my personality and my instructional style, so I adapted them to better suit my students and myself. I do not want to burden my students with excessive rules and consequences, so I focus on these 5 principles that, collectively, address every misbehavior you might have in your classroom.
There are two posters for rule 2 because we refer to students at my school as "leaders". I know some of you may prefer your posters to say the word "students" instead, so I included a copy of each.
So what are my 5? Download the file to find out! They work universally for all classrooms!
About the Seller
My name is Erika Bell, and I was born and raised in the great state of Alabama. In 2007, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing, with a minor in Spanish. I earned my Master of Arts in Education from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2011. I am highly qualified to teach English as a Second Language (ESL) for kindergarten through twelfth grade. I have three dogs, whom I consider to be my children. In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching movies, listening to music, and spending time with friends and family.
This year will be my ninth year in education. I was blessed to spend my first four years in education as a Special Education Paraprofessional in my school's Autism Unit. I was simultaneously earning my Master of Arts in Education in ESL while gaining real classroom experience. Since 2011, I have been an ESL teacher, and I absolutely LOVE my job! I get to teach English to students in all grade levels, and my students are always teaching me new words in their home languages and new ideas in their cultures.
I believe in creating an educational experience for students. The more senses that are engaged, the more students are learning. So when you visit my classroom, you'll likely see students moving around and making noise, expressing themselves and learning through doing. I believe in establishing strong procedures and then letting students discover their own learning within those procedures. I encourage students to chase their thoughts if they have a new idea that leads them to a new direction. I believe this is where the most meaningful learning takes place.
