Pre-K Classroom Rules

I have used these 4 simple classroom rules for Pre-K for over 10 years. They have worked well because they cover everything, and are simple enough for young children to remember. I always tell my students the most important rule is “Be nice to others” and I always put that poster first.

I have made these printable rules posters for use in your classroom. These can be posted on the wall, and I also recommend making a book with them to place in the reading center.

I have three different versions below, so you can choose the colors you like best.

    Hello Ms. Cox,
    I really enjoyed looking at all the age appropriate ideas that you have on your site. As an up and coming early childhood teacher, you really have captured the reason why I want to be a teacher. It’s fun and exciting, and it is awesome to know that you have helped a child accomplish something major in their lives that would stay with them for the rest of their lives. Again thanks for all you do.

    One can expect lots of good things from a awesome lady serving the young children through this program. You are a wonderful person with lots of talents. The charts are really helpful. Thank you and keep it up. My grandson Aydin Sameer (3 years old) and grand daughter Aysal Sameer (2 years old) enjoys your colorful charts.

    First of all I love seeing what you will share next. Thank you for that. Last year we got a new curriculum and instead of rules, we have Commitments. Students learn about each commitment and later in the year, they choose a commitment to focus on daily. There are four commitments, but for some reason I can only think of one of them at the moment. It is “Use your big voice.” This helps our students emotional growth, because they learn how to solve their own problems.
