"What do we need to do in our classroom to make sure everyone is able to enjoy pursuing their hopes and dreams?"
With guidance the Magical Minds turned their rules into positive statements: wait your turn, listen, sit up straight, we keep hands to ourselves. But, there were a lot of rules. How could we possibly remember all of them?
We started grouping and sorting our rules by their commonalities, and we were able to come down to three final rules.
As we grouped rules together, we decided we could summarize all our ideas under three "We Care" statements: "We take care about our community," "We take care of ourselves," and "We take care of our school's materials."
