Description of Idea

This school year our school theme is Chittick Champions. Therefore, I came up with a way to get my classroom rules across to the students while including the school theme. I tell my students "Following the rules in PE will make us a Chittick CHAMPION"; the rules spell out CHAMPION. Below are what my rules look like. In addition they are presented in a Word document that you can download and change the name of the school so it fits your school.

Cooperation: Use teamwork and show good sportsmanship
Hands: Keep hands and body parts to ourselves
Attention: Enter and exit with a quiet body and voice
Motivate: Get excited to learn, exercise and have fun
Prepared: Always wear sneakers and proper clothes
Involvement: Always participate and give best effort
Others: Respect the teacher, environment and your classmates
Noise: Stop, Look and Listen on the whistle or music

Assessment Ideas:

After reviewing the rules, I will say a letter and word that goes along with it (e.g. C or Cooperate). I then ask a student to define what that word means for the class rules.
