CLASS EXPECTATIONS version included!

If your classroom rules (or expectations) haven’t played a major role in helping you manage student behaviors in the past, it is time to unleash the transformative power of SIMPLE CLASS RULES. I use my rules as a cornerstone of an effective classroom management system and my friend, so can you!

These rules are designed specifically to meet the unique needs of Primary Students. Whether you teach Pre-K, Kindergarten, First or Second Grade- the goal of these simple and powerful statements where designed very mindfully with:

  • Simple language
  • · Concise structure and
  • · All-encompassing themes.

Simplicity is supreme when it comes to primary students. I have utilized these powerful statements of expectation for many years and when used effectively, have great power. The rules included here are:

#1: Be nice!

#2: Keep your hands to yourself.

#3: No running!

#4: Raise your hand to speak or to move.

#5: Listen to your teacher!

Pair them with daily priority and fun interactions and I assure that your rules will play a deeper role in encouraging positive student behaviors than EVER BEFORE.

I highly recommend that you CLICK HERE
