These are the class rules I use for my self-contained special ed classroom. They are very explicit with the expectations so there is no confusion as to what is appropriate behavior.
1. Respect Others - Keep hands, feet, and objects to yourself and stay in your own space.
2. Be responsible - Clean up after yourself and take care of materials.
3. Follow directions - The first time without defiance or arguing.
4. Be kind - Use school appropriate words and tone of voice.
