Golden Rules for Living


I have posted these Golden Rules before, but as we begin a new school year, I thought it would be a good idea to post them again- a reminder that they are rules that we ALL should follow.  Really, think about it.  Wouldn’t your world be a better place if everyone followed these rules? 

Golden Rules for Living

*If you open it, close it.

*If you turn it on, turn it off.

*If you unlock it, lock it up.

*If you break it, admit it.

*If you can’t fix it, call someone who can.

*If you borrow it, return it.

*If you value it, take care of it.

*If you make a mess, clean it up.

*If you move it, put it back.

*If it belongs to someone else and you want to use it, get permission.

*If you don’t know how to operate it, leave it alone.

*If it’s none of your business, don’t ask questions.

*If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.

*If it will brighten someone’s day, say it.

*If it will tarnish someone’s reputation, keep it to yourself.

    I had to move to Mcarthur. I don’t like it here, and the teachers at this school don’t know what they’re teaching. I go to the middle school. Heidi + Vanessa know more if you need any further info. I miss Laurelville. Bye.

Welcome to my blog!  I teach 7th grade Language Arts at McDowell Exchange School in the Logan Elm School district. I previously taught 5th grade at Laurelville Elementary (in the same district)-math for the last three years and language arts prior to that.

My hope is that this blog serves as a sort of newsletter for our class, keeping parents and students informed of class news and assignments for our Language Arts Class.  I also intend for it to be a place where students can share their writing and their thoughts on books that they are reading.

In March 2009, my blog was showcased by Sue Walters on The Edublogger site.  As a result, this blog has had visitors from all around the world.  It has been so exciting to see new dots appear on my clustr map! (see the clustr map below as of 9/24/09)  Thanks again, Sue!

Thanks for checking in. I would love to hear from you, so feel free to leave a comment and please visit again!
