My sweet sister and her children came up with the school rules in the picture above, and I think they are just brilliant! More than mere classroom/homeschool rules, they are rules for life–rules for all of us whatever season we are in.
1. Start with prayer.
2. Respect each other.
3. No whining.
4. No fighting.
5. Use calm voices.
6. Do your best! Finish your task!
7. Get permission.
8. Remember Phillipians 4:8–Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
9. Remember Matthew 22: 37-39–Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’”
What a great reminder!
