I am linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for this weeks Monday Made It!
I have decided to revamp my rules posters for this weeks Monday Made It. It is something that has been on my to do list for a while now.
Here is the before pic
Here is how I updated them.
First I created a new format with an apple theme, here is a sample of what they look like
I used graphics from Mel at From the Pond, the apple graphic is one I created and the font is a standard one on Microsoft, Segoe and one from Kevin and Amanda Carrington (?) On my old rules I just had the "negotiated" rules that I would discuss at the beginning of the year with the students. After being part of a PBS school I decided to add the headings RESPECT, RESPONSIBLE, SAFE to each rule depending on what category they came under. I think is important for students to see the reason why we have rules in the class and this is a reminder when we refer to them throughout the year.
Once I printed them off I glued them onto coloured paper and laminated them.
Then I lined them up in the order I wanted them to hang
I used red gingham ribbon to join them using a hot glue gun.
Then I used the apple green cord ribbon to make a hanger
This is how they turned out. (I had to hang it on my daughters wardrobe door to take this pic.)
Now it 's your turn to link up!
