This pdf file includes 12 expectations that can be printed, cut out, and laminated. These will make an excellent "expectation" or rules board for your classroom. Inspiration for this file came from my favorite educator, Ron Clark, and his book, "The Essential 55." Some of the listed rules are from his book and others have been adapted to better suite lower grade levels.
My students loved our expectations and it was very helpful to use them as reminders. For example, I would say, "What is expectation number 6?" while students were lining up, ect.
Expectations Include :
#1 - Always Be Honest
#2 - Always say, "Thank You"
#3 - Cheering on classmates
#4 - Learn Names of Other Adults in School
#5 - Make choices because they are right, not for a reward
#6 - Walking in line
#7 - Eyes on the speaker
#8 - Pick up things on the floor
#9 - Sharpening pencils before and after school only
#10 - Keep organized
#11 - Follow along in class
#12 - Assembly behavior
I plan to make different variations of these expectations! If you have suggestions leave a comment for me. Thanks!
**After downloading, if there is a rule that you would like to switch out for one of your own, feel free to message me. I would be happy to adjust it to best suit your class!
