The poster below can be used on a display in your classroom rules to share your expectations with your class. It is editable so you can add your own rules (although you are welcome to keep our suggestions too).
Why not use it at the start of the school year and ask children to come up with their own list of suggested rules? Here are some rules that you could include:
Listen to the teacher / adult.
Listen to others.
Put your hand up if you want to speak / answer.
We keep our hands / feet to ourselves.

Treat people the way you would like to be treated.
Be a good friend to everyone.
Follow directions from others.
Always tell the truth.
