Write a boring adjective at the bottom of the paint strip on the most boring color. Give each student a paint strip and they can use a thesaurus or a word wall to think of "more colorful" words for their strip
I really like this idea for classroom rules in a first grade class. It s very simple and to the point, yet it is intriguing to the students because of the visuals. Another thing I like is that the rules are all positive, there is no use of the words 'no' or 'don't' in them.
