Classroom Rules

Are you looking for ways to help create a positive learning environment in your classroom? 

Clearly defined expectations are a critical component to a successful classrooms.  When children understand the expectations of the classroom, they will be more engaged with academic task.  Student achievement will continue to flourish inside your classroom when they are provided with consistent rules and expectations. 

During the first week of school we practice, practice, practice the rules and expectations.  

We read our "I can expectations" together.

I model rules and then we role play the rules!

We also create a book all about the rules.  When a student needs a friendly reminder about a specific classroom rule, we reread our rule books together.  

Teaching the children the rules and expectations at the beginning of the year helps to keep our classroom engaged and focused on academic achievement!
