What should you do?
School Rules

During a class, your teacher asks a question. You shout out the answer without raising your hand. What is wrong with this?

I didn't give other kids the chance to think. I wasn't following school rules.  If I can should out, everyone else can too and then class will be really loud.

Your friend is mad at you and you don't know why. What should you do? 

Use my words and ask them what is wrong.

You are really angry at your friend for saying something mean. What should you do?

Stay calm and tell that friend what they said that made me feel angry.  If the friend still isn't being nice, then walk away and find someone else to be around.

You don't understand what the teacher is talking about. What should you do?

I need to raise my hand and ask the teacher to help me.  I need to explain that I don't understand and that I am frustrated or lost. I need to stay calm.

You tripped and fell in the hallway. All of the other students laugh at you. How did you feel? What should you do?

I feel embarrassed and angry. I am not hurt, so I can make it into a joke and laugh with the other kids instead of being laughed at.

You are in class taking a test. You get up to go to the bathroom without asking. What should you do instead?

I didn't follow the school rules. I could disrupt others that are focused. If I left without the teacher knowing, she could worry about where I am and I could be in danger if there is a lock down.

Your friend moved away to another state. How do you feel? What should you do?

I feel sad because I can't see them anymore.  I could make a new friend, keep in touch with my old friend or ask to talk to someone about my feelings.

You hit your friend because he made you angry. What is wrong with this?

First, I hurt my friend.  I did not use my words to tell my friend what I didn't like.  I didn't ask for a break or ask the teacher to help me fix the problem.

You forgot your homework at home. You are worried that you will get in trouble.  What should you do?

I should let my teacher know that I forgot my homework and ask if I can bring it tomorrow.

There is a line of students at the door. You go up to the front of the line and cut in front of everyone. What is wrong with this?

I think that I am allowed to do whatever I want. I did not follow the school rules. I was rude. I need to follow the rules and go to the end of the line.

You need to talk to your teacher, but see that she is talking to someone. What should you do?

Try to figure out the answer on my own, ask a friend or be patient and wait until she is done.

Another student was talking to you and got you in trouble. How did you feel? What should you do?

I feel mad, but I need to just deal with it. I can feel mad inside, but next time I need to remind them to be quiet and say we can talk during recess.

A teacher asks you a question and you answer it while staring at your feet. What is wrong with this? 

I need to look at people in the eyes when I am talking.  It is polite and the person can hear what I am saying.  It shows that I am confident and ready to learn.

You stayed home from school and missed a math test. What should you do to be ready for the test tomorrow?

You got in trouble with your teacher in front of your entire class. How did you feel? What should you do?

Excited because I have someone to talk to.

Another student made fun of you and called you a name.  How did you feel? What should you do?

You weren't nice to your friend yesterday because you were in a bad mood. What should you do?

Your friend is making fun of another student. What should you do?

Your best friend bought you a gift for your birthday. How did you feel? What should you do?

You don't like the work that your teacher just gave you. It is making you feel frustrated.  What should you do?

I need to first calm down (take deep breaths, count to 10).  I can also ask my teacher for a short break.  After I am calm, I need to do the work my teacher gave me even if I do not like it.
