## Reflection: Rules and Consequences How Do We Write Numbers? - Writing 1, 2, & 3 Review - Section 2: Presentation of Lesson

I love shaving cream!  It has always been a favorite activity of mine for practicing writing letters, numbers and words.  It also can be a big mess and cause chaos in the classroom.  From my past experiences, I developed these rules:

1. The shaving cream must remain on the table at all times.
2. No pounding to make the shaving cream splash.
3. Only touch your own shaving cream.
4.  When your shaving cream disappears, you are done.

I clearly stated these rules before we began and told students that if they did not follow the rules, they would lose their shaving cream.  Still I had a student who went crazy with the shaving cream.  Within a few seconds of it being on his table, it was on his face, in his hair and all over his neighbor.  I asked him where the shaving cream was supposed to be, and he answered "on the table."  I took his remaining shaving cream and had him to clean himself up.  He was upset, but I feel that it was important to enforce the rules and follow through with consequences.  This let the student and the rest of the class know that if the rules are not followed, they will not be able to use the shaving cream.  We will be doing shaving cream again in a few days, so the student who had the problem today will get another chance to use it to practice his numbers then.
