These fun, cute posters feature a monkey theme that is especially helpful if you use Bono the Monkey to introduce and review rules.
These are the FOUR RULES I used successfully in my Kindergarten and First Grade classroom for years. They go with a song by HeidiSongs called "The Rules Song" which is available for purchase on her website or FREE on YouTube. My students LOVED the song and it got them up and moving first thing in the morning. We did the song daily as an opener for the first few months of school.
The rules are as follows:
Rule 1: Listen
Rule 2: Follow directions
Rule 3: Keep your hands to yourself
Rule 4: Be nice to everybody
I found that those four rules encompassed everything in my classroom. Being a bully, you're breaking rule 4. We often would break out in song when someone broke rule 4.... "I'm always nice to everybody, nice to everybody, nice to everybody and I follow the rules!"
I used WBT (whole brain teaching techniques) in my classroom but preferred these rules over the WBT rules. When someone raised their hand to ask a question or share and someone else began talking, many students would chime in and say a simple, "RULE 1!" and everyone would fall back in line.
I like helping tailor my resources to best suit my buyer's needs...simply email me!
If you like the layout but need different rules OR WOULD LIKE A DIFFERENT STYLE MONKEY please let me know via email (included in the product). It is super easy to change the text or background colors to suit your personal needs! :) I have no way to contact my buyers personally except that I do respond to QA's and Feedback comments as soon as possible.
As always, I have included FOUR different options for the rules posters with TWO different backgrounds (chevron OR stripes). Print the pages you want, laminate, display, and review daily.
These have a red chevron background.
These have horizontal stripes (each rule is a different color).
These have a red chevron background and show the number with bananas near the monkey.
