    Last week I had my students list "rules" we should have in our classroom. They came up with a huge list. I am trying to condense the list to 4 or 5 expectations. What are your expectations or rules you use in your classroom?

    Thanks!

    Our rules are schoolwide-
    I will wait my turn to speak
    I will treat others the way I want to be treated
    I will respect the diversity of all people
    I will remember that I have people that care about me in my family, school, and community
    I will try my best

    I did the same with my class, but of course I already knew which rules we would end up with. :) I helped them condense into these rules:

    1. I will keep my hands and feet to myself.
    2. I will follow directions.
    3. I will be kind to my classmates and teachers.
    4. I will have fun!

    Keep your hands feet and objects to yourself

    Use walking feet inside of the building

    Use small, friendly voices

    No talking when adults or other students are talking

    Follow directions the first time

    -Those are our class rules.

    We are always careful listeners.
    We are walkers, not runners.
    We are helpers, not hurters.
    We are talkers, not shouters.
    We are quiet workers, not players.
    We are respectful.
    We are responsible.

    I am missing two, but I can't think of them right now.
