At the start of the school year, we spend what seems like too much time setting norms for our classroom, but boy, is it worth it! Both sixtgh grade classes set up their own class set of norms, starting with what a typical science classroom behaves like as individuals, then as a table group, and then finally as a class. Through a detailed discussion, we came to consensus, or a shared agreement for what should happen. We publicly posted our norms, so at any point in the year if we need to revisit them, we can. Great start to the school year 6th grade!
