What FOUR classroom rules would you have?

Discussion in 'Primary' started by Simples101, Aug 16, 2011.

  1. Hi I am a relative newbee to the profession going into my second year of teaching a Year 3 class and I am asking for 4 of the best, ultimate, amazing classroom rules to let pupils know where they stand.
    So, if you could have the ideal classroom atmosphere, what 4 ground rules would you have?
    Here are my current 4...
    1. Always listen carefully to the person speaking.
    2. Be reponsible for your own behaviour.
    3. Keep the classroom tidy.
    4. Treat each other with respect.
    Over to the pros...or anyone who wants to answer really...GO!

  3. I would have:
    1. One person talks at a time.
    2. Treat others as you would like to be treated.
    3. Follow all instructions.
    4. Respect yours and others belongings.
    (Not a pro by the way)
     
  4. Keep them in mind but get the pupils to come up with the wording.
    Children who are involved with the process 'buy' in to the rules. Also they should sign their names/draw a picture of themselves. No reason for not abiding by them.
    When I did this with reception we had already had a discussion on the difference between our toys and our equipment - they made it much bigger than tidy - looking after our equipment meant tidying, and treating it properly.
    Also sometimes for a display it is easier to make it short and simple after discussing what it means -
    Listen
    Be responsible
    Look after equipment
    Respect all
    (hope this helps)
     

  5. Once they have sorted out the rules ( which will probably be the ones you would have chosen anyway) ask them what 4 rules they would give you to be the teacher they want?
    Then ask them if the two sets of rules work together...

    Listen

    Take responsibility for your own actions and choices.

    Respect each other and the school

    Do as you are asked when you are asked ;)
     
  7. I have three classroom rules that I point out to them at the beginning of each year:
    Listen when somebody else is speaking.
    Put your hand up if you want to speak.
    Don't get out of your seat without permission.
    We have other whole school rules that cover the 'respect' and general behaviour agenda.

    I've seen
    One voice at a time
    Keep hands & feet to yourselves
    Right place, right equipment
    Do as you're told first time
    in a number of schools.
