This page has a collection of signs to set expectations for students and assist in teaching. I think the group work expectations chart would be helpful at the beginning of the year. The teacher seems to be working toward a student-centered classroom, but at the same time, making these beforehand focuses more on the teacher. I would think that asking kids for their thoughts on how this would benefit them would be appropriate in order to bring the locus of control to them.

Task Develop guidelines for success - I think the group work expectations chart would be helpful at the beginning of the year because it gets student to see what the teacher is expecting of them through out the school year.

A rolled hem is a very small hem made up of two folds. It can be really tricky to sew since each fold is teeny tiny. Many sewing machines have a rolled hem foot that curves and folds the fabric as you sew, but I find that way of sewing it to be very fussy and difficult to control. This is my personal preferred method for a rolled hem and I find it works perfectly every time.
