I RAISE MY HAND: FIRST WEEKS

i raise my hand

Introduce and practice the procedure of raising your hand with this resource.

Included is a full color book for the teacher.

A reader for students to read and color.

 

As well as display and task cards.

This series helps you teach the rules and routines of kindergarten.  I use it to establish procedures and spark discussion.

“Why do we raise our hand?”

“Why is it hurtful to blurt?”

The student reader is also a nice communication to send home, so that parents are part of the conversation and know the classroom expectations for behavior.

I hope you enjoy!  Click on any of the images to see the full resource on my Teachers pay Teachers site.

The first weeks of kindergarten are all about teaching routines and procedures.

This resource will help you teach the rules of the playground with simple pictures and text.

Included in this pack you will find a full color reader for teachers.

A mini-reader for students to read and color.

As well as task and display cards.

I have used these in my own classroom and find that they help introduce procedures, but also guide our discussions about the how and why of our rules.  The student reader is also a nice resource to send home to parents, so they are also included in the discussion about rules.

Introduce rules and procedures with this series of mini-readers.

Students learn to raise their hand when they have a question, to share ideas, and to ask for help.  They also learn that it is hurtful to interrupt when others are talking or waiting their turn.

Students learn that they can be happy when the teacher calls on them and when the teacher calls on a friend.  They do not always get a turn and can wait for next time.

It is good manners to raise your hand!
