Have you ever read "The Essential 55" by Ron Clark? It's a great book with basic rules that we want our kids to follow to show good manners, work ethic, and compassion for others. It's all about the "stuff" we want kids to know that's not in our content standards. I did not write these rules, I simply created the posters from the rules written in the book. There is one rule per page. Check out "The Essential 55" for details about how he suggests implementing these rules in a classroom setting. A few of the rules' wording has been tweaked to suit an elementary to middle school setting.
