Keep it simple, yet effective and cute!
I have learned that I really only need 5 rules in my classroom. Any behavior a student chooses falls into one of the 5 categories. This keeps it clear, consistent, and simple for the students and myself as well!
We recite our rules every morning to keep them fresh in our brain (I added motions we do as we recite them). Pictures are included on each poster that support the rule to give the learner visual clues as well. When a student makes a poor choice, we discuss which rule has been broken. The rules are:
Take care of our things.
Do your best!
I hope you have as much success with these as I have! Thank you!
