I love linky parties! I am joining Forever in First for a her "My Teacher Always Says" linky. I will share a few of those things I say over and over and over again.
I am always talking about their "jobs." I always say: "What is your job." or "Do your job." Then I usually say something about when they do their job they have to do their best. Most of them can finish sentences with "best" or "job."
Another one: "Who's responsibility is it?" I remind them frequently that it is my responsibility to teach them but it is their responsibility to take their homework home, to do the work, and to bring it back. The responsibility and job phrases are relatively interchangeable.
I know there are other things I say besides just our routines and procedures, but I can't think of them. We use a voice level system and I often ask, "What level voice do we use right now?"
Oh! My favorite thing I say! "We can practice flexibility (and they have to flex their knees when we say it)." "When plans change...." (and we sort of hold our hands up like we don't know), " we go with the flow. (we move our hands like a river flowing when we say that)."
What do you always say to your class? Hop over and read and link up!
