Some school-age teachers and caregivers find it beneficial to include the children in creating a set of classroom rules or expectations. Some even go as far as to make a classroom constitution or classroom contracts. These can be beneficial to get student feedback and to learn what it is that students value most in their classroom. They spend a great deal of time in school or in child care and may communicate their needs in a community setting by contributing to the creation of classroom rules.
Using a classroom constitution or a collaborative rule-setting process also gives teachers the opportunity to get to know their students better very early on. Each year a new group of students comes to class with different needs and temperaments. Creating rules and expectations together gives teachers a special insight to the children in their classroom and their priorities. It also creates an environment of caring and community that hopefully makes way for a feeling of security and belonging for all students.
