Creating Classroom Beliefs

We read the book, Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun by Maria Dismondy. We think the author's purpose for writing this book was to show that everyone is unique and different in their own way. 

We noticed that there were ten beliefs listed by the author at the back of the book. This inspired us to use these beliefs in our classroom. Mrs. Steuart had us think about why each belief was important and how we would practice them in our classroom.
Livy is thinking about how we can put our beliefs into action.

We worked in small groups having discussions about a particular belief and then recorded our thoughts as a group.
We organized all of our beliefs into a chart. Then we traced our hands and coloured them to act as a signature. The end result is pictured below. Isn't it lovely?
