In my classroom we say the pledge of allegiance everyday as American citizens and then we recite "Our Class Promise" as well to make sure that we remember what it takes to make the day amazing. We reinforce behaviors and strategies when we say our promise. It's a great way to start the day and comes filled with so many daily opportunities to discuss and reflect on classroom community.

I love rubrics! Seriously, the students learn so much from creating a learning rubric. The growth is amazing! Here is a writing rubric I created with my kinders. They helped design the whole thing. Each component took us a couple of days to learn and practice and before we knew it, we had a very helpful self-assessment tool. Students work on their pieces until they have "Flower Power"!
