Which are your classroom rules?
Everyone says that I should have about 5 rules in first grade. What do you think?
I'm new in first grade and I don't know what to do...

I have four:

Be Kind
Be Safe
Follw Directions
Always Do Your Best!

These seem to be easy for 1st graders to remember and they know exactly what they mean.... plus they are general enough to apply to every situation. This is what works for me!

These are my rules
1. Raise your hand to ask a question.
2. Ask to go to the restroom.
3. Sharpen pencils and get drinks one at a time, no lines, only when
I am not talking.
4. Put your name on your paper.
5. Walk in the room and in the hall. No horsing around.
6. Treat everyone with respect.

poem

I use a rules poem and we recite it everday:

We raise our hands to speak
We work quietly at our seats
We use voices soft and sweet
We keep our place tidy and neat
We are helpful, friendly, and fair
We take turns and willingly share.

My children came up with the following classroom rules:

Be nice and kind to everyone.
Be nice to yourself.
Take care of the school and classroom.
Everyone gets to play and learn.

We start with hopes and dreams for the year. Then we list all the rules we would have to follow to make sure all the hopes and dreams could come true. I always get the usual -- no pushing, no fighting, no yelling, no breaking things....

The next day I help the class pare down the list to 3 clear positives. This year we have:

Be nice to everyone.
Listen and do your work.
Take care of everything at school.

and we added a 4th:

Have fun and learn a lot!

I tell them if you follow the other 3 (which fit every scenario) you will be able to follow the 4th!

Every year the rules are slightly different because the kids help craft the words, but they always include a rule each for taking care of yourself, others and the environment.

I have two
1. Keep hands and feet to yourself.
2. Treat others the way you want to be treated.

We talk about what number 2 means and how that is a BIG rule.
