This is a set of classroom rules written as a poem. Many of the rules are personal and what I request in my classroom, but also think they are common to many classrooms, 4th grade and up. In the lower grades you are told not to use "no" and "don't", these rules have lots of no's and don't's!
You can get a few of class lessons out of this list of rules. (context clues, there may be some words that need explaining, have students rewrite a poem for the teacher stating what they need as students, change the don't's into positive statements)
Blow It up and display or give out to parents to discuss with students
