I don't like to have a whole list of rules, but in my 5th and 6th grade classrooms, this is what I have posted:

Be prepared
Be polite
Be productive
Be positive

These are the ones my school uses in the younger grades:

*Our Classroom Rules:
1. We raise our hands for permission to talk or to get out of our seats.
2. We listen carefully and follow directions the first time they are given.
3. We keep our hands, feet, and objects to ourselves.
4. We always do our best!

I use the same set of rules as tammynj with one addition: Be prompt.

One thing about them is that I was interviewing for a job and the principal asked about my classroom rules. I could tell she was impressed when I rattled them off. I don't know if it was because I could or the content. I did get that job.

I have this posted

Cause no problem for yourself, your parents, your teacher, or your classmates.

Everything else is a procedure.

I do use Kelso's Choices...especially liking the TELL THEM TO STOP, IGNORE THEM, and WALK AWAY.

I use the 6 P's and also have a NO WHINING sign up in my room. The type where WHINING is in a circle with a line through it.

One rule

Keep Your Teacher Happy
(I post this and wonder what people must think of me, but it really has worked well and the kids think it is great - only one rule to remember.) Of course, there are many expectations that go with that rule.

Class Rules

I only use three rules, and I feel that they cover just about everything:

1. Be respectful.
2. Be responsible.
3. Be safe.

The first week of school we brainstorm what a respectful student, a responsible student, and a safe student would be doing in school.

We're a Tribes school, so all classes have the same four agreements:

Respect for self, others and environment
Attentive listening
Positive comments/no put-downs
Participation/right to pass

Each class might word these rules differently, but we all use them. I generally introduce, brainstorm and role-play each one for a week or two and then have my students rewrite them as a class agreement that we all sign.

I also use these rules with my 5th graders. On the first day of school, we talk about what each of these mean to them and they come up with examples. I have them write their examples on a large sheet of paper that goes beneath the main rule.

I use Rules in School by Responsive Classroom to create my rules with students.

1. We talk about rules in general.
2. We brainstorm as many rules as we can think of.
3. We change them to positives ("If we aren't supposed to yell, what should we do?")
4. Categorize them into three categories (ex. rules for self, rules for environment/classroom, rules about treating others, etc.) So, raise your hand would go under "rule for self" or "rule for others" or both. I teach primary so I give them the categories but older kids (or even primary kids) could come up with their own categories.
5. State those as broad general rules.

So, ours ended up being...
Take care of yourself.
Take care of others.
Keep everything clean and beautiful.

Whenever a child is having trouble with a particular problem, they can always go back to the problem they are having with "their rule" and I think it makes more sense to them to change their behavior because they are initially invested in the rules.

Good luck!

Two rules:

I am responsible for...
my choices
my actions
my reactions
my behavior
myself

And this one (think I got from here on PT)

Discipline yourself, so I don't have to.

Mine are inspired by Whole Brain Teaching Rules.

1. Follow directions quickly.
2. Be respectful with your words and actions.
3. Raise your hand for permission to speak or leave your seat.
4. Make wise choices.

I left off "Keep your dear teacher happy" bc following rules 1-4 keeps me happy and it seemed redundant.

Three rules in my classroom cover just about everything:
*Be respectful
*Be responsible
*Be kind

Next year I will keep these rules posted but will be following the Rules in School from the Northeast Foundation for Children. This is a Responsive Classroom book.

Classroom Rules

I got my rules from Whole Brain Teaching and printed posters out to go along with rules. There are also movements that go along with the rules. You can check out whole brain teaching on youtube. My students love practicing these rules. When a rule is broken( a student gets up without permission) I just ask what rule are you breaking and they instantly know.

1. Follow directions quickly.
2. Raise your hand for permission to speak.
3. Raise your hand for permission to leave your seat.
4. Make smart choices.
5. Keep your dear teacher happy (how? by following the first 4 rules)
