Hand drawn poster states and illustrates these positive classroom rules:
-Be Prompt: come on time and ready to learn.
-Be Present: listen with your body and mind.
-Be Patient: wait to speak until others are done.
-Be Polite: show kindness and respect to all.
-Be Persistent: keep on doing your very best.
Originally intended for speech rules in a speech therapy classroom, this poster will easily generalize to a variety of classrooms. Additionally this poster can serve to provide discussion of higher level vocabulary and definitions (e.g. "prompt", "persistent").
