I don't know if this has been discussed before, but here are my classroom rules that I fine tuned over the summer- 1. Follow Directions 2. Be in your seat when the bell rings- both to start and dismiss class 3. Do not talk while others are talking 4. Be respectful- no swearing, bullying or teasing 5. If it belongs to the school, the teacher, or someone else- leave it alone! What are yours?
