Back to school first day or first week activity for classroom rules and procedures: "Can I Chew Gum in Class?" and other questions students ask the first week of school

This IS included in the following mega bundle: ALL of my BACK TO SCHOOL RESOURCES GROWING BUNDLE.

Instead of simply reading your rules to the students on the first day back to school, let them find the answers to their most common questions. I included my own answers to these questions, but you can customize this handout to fit your needs. Your school and class rules will vary, but chances are the same or similar questions will be asked.

Microsoft Word Version - Can be edited to suit your needs.

Google Docs Versions- Can be shared with your students on a secured platform such as Google Classroom.

BONUS FILES: Newly added Quote/Speech Bubble activity that can be used on the first day or anytime! They can be used for exit slips, bellringers, etc.. For any content area and a wide range of ages.

This can be used for back to school, new semester, a new group of students, or just when you want to refresh your class rules with students.
