    I have a poster with these...you could reword for K. I find they pretty much 'say it all'.;)

    Listen carefully
    Follow directions
    Work quietly. Do not disturb others who are working.
    Respect others. Be kind with your words and actions.
    Respect school and personal property.
    Work and play safely.

    I like the rules posted by czacza. They would very much work for a K room.

    Our school uses:
    Be Safe
    Be Responsible
    Be Respectful

    I found it covers all situations and easy to remember :)

    I always have the kids make the list of rules on the first day. They will even refer to it more often themselves-Johnny, the rules say you have to follow directions.

    My rules will be:

    We follow instructions the first time they are given.
    We keep our hands, feet, and objects to ourselves.
    We always try our best.

    I used these in grade one for a few years and they worked really well. I like that they are written in a postive way. I have also made rules with the kids but I find that its difficult to reign kids that young in and create a simple list. Might work with your class though:)

    Rule number 1 - listen.
    Rule number 2 - share
    Rule number 3 - be kind with your words
    Rule number 4 -make Mrs. M. happy
    The golden rule - treat others the way you want to be treated.

    We repeat them together every day for the first month.

    My Classroom Rules

    OUR CLASSROOM RULES

    1. I raise my hand to speak
    2. I stay quietly in my seats.
    3. I am helpful, kind and fair.
    4. I take turns and always share.
    5. I always obey the very first time.
    6. When the teacher uses her voice, I don't use mine.


    I especially love this set of rules because they rhyme. The children had them memorized within the first two weeks. I just have to remind them sometimes by saying "now what does our rule say about obeying, speaking, our seats, etc. They take right off quoting the rule. I will probably never change them. I have a huge sign made at the local sign shop to mount on the wall. I will try posting the picture.



    How do I add the picture from My Pictures?

    Revamped rules from the Whole Brain Teaching
    Rule #1 Listen while your teacher is talking
    Rule #2 Follow directions quickly
    Rule #3 Raise your hand for permission to speak
    Rule #4 Raise your hand for permission to leave your seat
    Rule #5 Respect yourself, respect others, respect your school

    They recited these rules EVERY morning along with the hand gestures that went with them.

    This is what we had as well. We talked about what it means to "be safe" - what does it look like? what do you do if you are safe?

    We repeat this often.

    When there is a behavior issue we would talk about if it was a safe/respectful/responsible choice.

    I did set up specific rules for specific situations.

    On the carpet rules:
    Sit criss cross
    hands in your lap
    listen to the person talking
    look at the person talking

    I always post them with pictures next to them.

    Thanks for posting these czacza! I have been trying to revamp my rules. I just didn't really like the way that they are worded... But yours are awesome! :thumb:
