Golden rules for the classroom: Simple, yet effective guidelines that will help teachers to feel confident and establish a good rapport with their students.

Golden rules for the classroom convey certain behaviors that both students and teachers need to abide by.

Teachers should not carelessly use their power because they represent education. Students should behave in class and follow the teacher’s instructions.

The first rule of teaching is to respect every student in your classroom and treat them with kindness. The second rule is to try not to work too hard, because you can end up stressing yourself out. Rule three: have fun with your students, but remember that you have a job to do.

How to create classroom rules

Build the foundation

Building a classroom that feels like a community has a lot of advantages, including the following:

Enhanced academic performance, civil discourse, and a growth attitude are a few examples. When classroom rules are based on shared ideals, they can foster a sense of community.

Display classroom rules creatively

The only thing that would bore your pupils more than having a long, black-and-white list of rules posted on the wall on the first day of class would be having to sit in their desks and listen to you recite the list while they wish it was still summer break.

On the first day of class, introduce the rules of the classroom in a fun way to encourage creativity.

To artistically illustrate the rules for the rest of the class, ask students to assist in creating posters or quick skits illustrating the regulations.

Students are more likely to remember and follow the rules if they helped present them.

Be specific

Unaware of it or not, students thrive and achieve academic success in a setting with defined norms and boundaries.

Starting with broad guidelines and educational ideas is a great idea, but daily regulations should be precise and leave minimal space for interpretation or manipulation.

If you decide to establish rules with your kids, instruct them to go beyond simple concepts. Ask them to reflect on how rules actually work in real life and what punishments should be meted out for breaching them.

Be clear on consequences

Any classroom needs structure and routine, and it’s your job as the teacher to implement the rules consistently without favoritism or easing off on the punishments. If you don’t, students won’t appreciate and adhere to the regulations.

Make it abundantly clear up front what happens if the rules are broken.

Think about using a “repair what you broke” strategy, where you ask the student to atone for their actions or remarks, or you impose time-outs and temporary loss of privileges.

Be ready to react appropriately since some offenses—such as violence vs speaking out of turn—are more serious than others.

Give rewards

While most teachers outline repercussions for misconduct, you might also want to point out opportunities for children to get praise. The strategy of positive reinforcement is effective.

Be careful to compliment children when they behave appropriately, and think about rewarding students who go above and above with tiny rewards.

Stickers, the opportunity to serve as the “line leader” for the day, or even more time playing a stimulating educational game like Prodigy Math are all examples of rewards.


as a teacher you need to be committed to your career, not just for the good of your students but also for yourself. You must believe in your subject, allowing it to blossom in front of each new student.

The teacher must be able to make the learning environment exciting and informative by employing interesting methods and techniques that interest children. Last but not least is the importance of setting high expectations while keeping them achievable and realistic.

Know your students, and make sure you are setting targets for them that are appropriate.

Behave well in front of them and always be on your best behavior, as it is your responsibility to set a good example. From time to time, make sure you ask your students what they would like to work on and improve.

They will appreciate being asked as this helps them become more invested in their own learning and takes the focus away from what you want.
