Class Rules for first grade?

Please let me know if you have class rules for first grade or a similar grade. I am going to be teaching a first grade CCD class and I want to have class rules because the main thing I'm concerned about is class management and discipline. Rather than starting from scratch, I figure I'd better ask the experts!

TIA!

It's an after-school religious education program. It hasn't started yet. I want to run it as much like a normal classroom as posisble so there is structure. I know when it's after school kids have a tendency to act up and not take it seriously, so I want to set a serious tone from the beginning, even though they're 1st grade and so cute and I really want to have fun> Chat Icon

Our basics are:

Listen to the speaker

Respect all people, their things and our school

Hands & feet to yourself

Help others do their best (don't distract)

Re: Class Rules for first grade?

I have all of the same rules as mentioned above. We really have been focusing on keeping hands feet and objects to ourselves, my kids can't keep their hands off each other!!!

Re: Class Rules for first grade?

I teach first grade. The best way to create rules is to creat 3 very general rules.. this way anything they do wrong will fall into any category and they are easy to refer to. These are my rules...

Keep your voice and body in control
Be kind to others
Take care of your classroom

So for example.. a child keeps calling out..That's two rules that are broken... he's not being kind to others because he keeps interrupting and hes not keeping his voice in control. A child leaves books out.. he's not taking care of his classroom. A child can't sit still.. he's not keeping his body in control..I can go on all day.. hehe


But make sure there are consequences for the rules... or they will be nothing. Hope this helps.

Re: Class Rules for first grade?

One simple rule (we used w/ 3rd) is...no interfering w/ the teaching/learning of others (but that doesn't truly spell it out for them)

In my Pre-K I use:

Work & play safely
Treat others kindly
Listen to your teachers
Use our inside voices

Re: Class Rules for first grade?

I have a large piece of chart paper and go over rules that would be good for the class.
I do it with them and give each child a post it..I tell them to write or DRAW the rule if they cannot spell. it comes out so cute and we do it as a class. I hang it all year. Chat Icon

Re: Class Rules for first grade?

my kindergarten class has positive rules in a poem


we raise our hands to speak
we sit quietly at our seats
we use voices soft and sweet
we keep our places tidy and neat
we are helpful, friendly and fair
we take our turns and willingly share.
