Classroom Values - University of Hawaii at Manoa

Classroom Values
The purpose of the values is to create behavioral expectations for the children as they
interact with their peers and their environment. The children co-construct the values of
their classroom with their teacher, thereby taking ownership of their classroom
responsibilities. This creates a common language and understanding among diverse
groups of children and serves as a way to unify the group. The teacher then refers back to
these values on a daily basis to remind students of what it means to be a part of the school
