When I taught my own class (before becoming a resource teacher), I had only four rules, and I reviewed them every day for the first two weeks of school.

Classroom Rules 1-1

My class was very orderly and all the students knew what was expected of them. Different teachers have different tolerance levels for noise/kids getting up out of their seats, etc.–it really is a preference. But for me, the simplicity of four rules worked best.
