    Each year I make a Welcome to Third grade folder that has all my rules, schedules, and other pertinent school information. We read this every day and learn the rules, demonstrate the rules, practice the rules. (Harry Wong is my hero!) You can give Power Point presentations on the rules (cute template at Microsoft site). I also give daily quizzes on the rules. I use sentence strips with out schedule on it and we put them in the correct order in a pocket chart. I read Judy Moody was in a Mood, not a good Mood by Megan McDonald. Judy is a third grader who does not want to get up and start back to school after summer vacation. In the story she has to make a "Me" project, we make a "Me" project. She also has a pet Venus Flytrap, we get a pet Venus Flytrap. The book is so cute and the kids love it. Mailbox from Aug/Sept 2001 has more activities to go with the story. By the time you have taught rules, the kids have learned about each other, and supplies are put away, it is time to pass out textbooks and get to the really fun stuff. Have a great year.
