  1. it would be cool if... daniel says:

    I could change having to behave at school. The only problem would be that it would be chaos. duh duh duh πŸ˜€

  2. Steve Scott says:

    If I had the power to change one rule at school or home I would choose to make it so we had no homework. Because if there was no homework then instead of going home to do hard boring homework I could just chill and relax. But if the rule was changed to no homework that would probably be disastrous because then everyone would have to do and finish the work at school.

    • Mr. Bell says:

      Do think it is desirable to work hard at school, thus freeing up your time away from school to chill and relax?

  3. savannah says:

    I would say there would be no more HCED because everybody in grades 5,6& 7 hate it. a It would let us more things that aren’t really fun. It would be fun to hate math again.

  4. MAT SHAH says:

    I would change the rule at school would be RESSESS through the day.
    I would change the rule at home would be don’t clean you’re room.

    • Mr. Bell says:

      Good changes.

      Quick Fixes: recess (not ressess); you’re/your (you’re = you are; your = belongs to you)

      Predict for us the results of your rule changes. What will happen?

  5. Jacob Kealey says:

    If I had a choice of a rule that I could change It would probably be a four month summer. The results would be everyone would enjoy their summer and get to have a couple vacation’s before school. Then look forward to school when summer is over. πŸ™‚

    • Mr. Bell says:

      Do you think school would be more difficult? Wouldn’t students forget most of what they had studied?

  6. TYLER (WARDO) WARD says:

    If I were to change a rule at school I would probably make it so I could where my hat. We should be allowed hats in school because it wouldn’t effect schoolwork or anything else like that. Finally hats are good because the sun might be in your eyes so you can just pull your hat down. That is just a couple reasons on why we should be allowed hats in school.

  7. I would change the rule that is I could go to bed at any time on school nights!!! Because that would be cool I geuss!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  8. Allie Sampson says:

    If I could change any rule I would change the rule of doing math at school.Then there would be no homework forever and the kids or adults would be relived. And everyone would be a lot happier that they won’t have to spend their day working and working instead of going outside,cooking,swimming,play with people,hang out with their friends,have a barbecue, then they would have way more time to do fun stuff without all that homework! It would be awesome and fun. πŸ™‚

    • Mr. Bell says:

      Hmm, without Math, how would we tell time when cooking or playing? How would we know how deep the pool is? Perhaps it would be a disaster without Math… πŸ™‚

  9. mYRAndA/tOTski Wawryk says:

    If I were to change one rule in the house it would be to …..Do what ever I want =no chores,no school…..well mostly no school,not being forced into tennis lessons or volley ball .I would like to have some rules time to time but ,for now if that happened I would just live in the moment.Tee Hee=)

    • Mr. Bell says:

      Predict the outcome if you did not have to do any of those things…especially the no school. Where do you see yourself without school?

  10. RYRY321URME Johnson says:

    I would change that you can walk around the hallways whenever you want and talk with your friends but still learn. I don’ t think I have ever heard of a school that does that though. If I could change something at home it would probably be that I don’t have to unload the dishwasher because I just hate it so much. Then after I unload it I have to dry them and then put them away πŸ™ . I guess that is what chores are though. That is about it.

    • Mr. Bell says:

      If you didn’t put the dishes away, what would you use to eat?

      • Rylee Johnson says:

        true! But why cant my parents just do that?

        • Mr. Bell says:

          You make a reasonable argument…perhaps we should make up a list of kid chores vs parent chores to see if the parents can squeeze in time to do dishes. πŸ™‚

  11. meep teufele says:

    If I had a super power to change a school rule I would change the rule :You have to be at school from Monday to Friday to you have to go to school from Tuesday to Wednesday.

  12. (Calvin) (CCF) (FORBES) says:

    I want to change my curfew to 8:00 I would be able to finish more games and have more fun with my friends I would be more tired and get up earlier

  13. jacob harmon says:

    I would make there be no hard work so everything would be easy so we would not have do hard math. The disaster would be we could not learn allot of things in school.

  14. Ashley Evin says:

    I would change that if you don’t wan to go outside you can just hang out in the hallway but only the intermediate students, because the primary students would just yell and scream. I would want this to happen so if it is cold outside you don’t have to go outside just like the high school. I think that the rule would be pretty good because some of the students would want to go outside but some of the others would wan to stay in. There could also be some supervision in the halls.

    • SMALER#12 HAYDEN says:

      That sounds good except for the supervision in the halls,if there was supervision in the halls I would go outside even if it was like -25 or +40. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  15. Jonny says:

    At school would change the ruler of chewing gum in school time because then I don’t have to hid it from the teachers. but there would probably be a lot of gum around. which is the bad thing.

    • SMALER#12 HAYDEN says:

      Ya that would be good but bad because we would have to pick the gum up off the floor and under tables. πŸ™‚

  16. SMALER#12 HAYDEN says:

    At school I would change the time of school it would start at 9:30-1:00 that would be so much better for my life and probably everyone else.

    At home probably to change that I could do anything at home I wanted and that would be awesome!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  17. Kim says:

    I would change that when you are at school you are aloud to sit with however you want at recess and lunch, because you can talk to them and so you don’t feel lonely when you are eating you snack or lunch.
    I think the results would be that there would be less yelling across the class trying to talk to you friend or friends

  18. I ownzzzz you at biking p.s brant says:

    If I could change any rule at home or school I would make it be that you could talk back to the teachers and my mum and dad. It would be pretty cool. If I changed it Ithink kids would be really mouthy to their parents and the teachers so I think it would be a petty bad rule but it would be fun to be a part of. πŸ˜‰
