Our Classroom Rules


This year, I wanted to truly review our classroom rules daily. In order to get my students’ d r i f t i n g attention, I decided to use 3D visuals.  


I went ahead and used multiple Mr. Potato body parts as visuals for each rule (I stuck them to the vertical surface using sticky putty). I saw a few versions of this on Pinterest. After seeing a couple of ideas, I was able to add my own twist.

I added the mustache on the top left corner (“Mustache you to follow the classroom rules”). I also changed the typical “quiet mouths” to “talking mouths”– with my students with autism, I need to constantly prompt the use of words. The first week, I only had the first 5 rules and then couldn’t believe I left out the one my students typically have the most trouble with- SITTING (“bottom in chair”). 

I really love our classroom rules! This particular display has been the most successful in getting student attention and in having them refer back to it when rules are broken.
