Classroom rules...in preschool

I've tried searching, but no luck (and I'm in a rush lol!) What are some of the rules you have in your preschool classroom? I have 3 - 4yr olds. I was thinking along the line of 'Be kind to your friends, Be kind to your teacher, Be kind to your classroom' sort of thing.

You should have no more than 3-5 rules that are simple and easy to remember.

We list them with our children (they come up with them), and then combine them to form 3 simple rules:
1 Be nice
2 Be safe
3 Be active listeners

These rules sum up everything. We then talk about ways to do each of these, and role play situations where we follow/don't follow each rule, so that they better understand them.

These are posted in the classroom at all times, with pictures.

Here are mine . . . for whatever they're worth:

Walking feet inside.
Use kind words.
Keep your hands and feet to yourself.

I came up with these after observing and seeing what the biggest problems seemed to be in my class. However, had I not started midyear, I probably would have asked my class to help me come up with them. Hmm, I probably should have these posted on a wall somewhere.

1. Be nice to others.
2. Listen to the teachers.
3. Work & play safely.
4. Be quiet indoors.

I have clipart to represent each of these rules & I made them into a book. You can see it on my rules webpage.

respect yourself
respect your neighbor
respect your surroundings (or enviornment)

everything i need can be found in those 3 rules. need inside feet-that would be respecting your surroundings and respecting your neighbor who will be either knocked over or have their tower knocked down.

see?

I had my kids help come up with ours at the beginning of the year. We have:

1. Sit criss-cross applesauce.
2. Listening ears.
3. Quiet mouth.
4. Be nice!

I have black line drawings that I got out of our PATHS for Preschool curriculum to go with each of our rules. They seem to work well.
