Establishing classroom rules that will last the whole year through is one of the first things done at the beginning of the school year. I try to keep the rules simple. We build up a set of rules together with the children and we also establish the consequences if the rules are broken. We do a poster with the rules, and hang it at the front of the classroom for all of to see. Ms Marthese and Ms Barbara refer to the poster when we start disobeying the rules!
