Here are 32 task cards to help your students internalize classroom rules. Each card features a different rule. The rules are fairly broad, so most, if not all of them should apply to your class. A few of them are more about attitude/citizenship than actual rules (for example, card number 31 says, “In our class we know that everyone is unique and important.”). The rules are also all worded using positive language, so students are focusing on what they should be doing, not what they shouldn’t.
In addition to the 32 rules cards, there are three challenge cards that can be used to extend the activity and 4 blank cards so you can make your own. There are also three different graphic organizers that can be used with these cards as well as a page that can be used to make a class book.
There are many ways to use these cards. You can give one to each student and have them pair-share or share in small groups. You could use them with the whole group by displaying one card at a time on the document camera. You could make them into a center activity. They would also make great journal prompts and of course there is also the class book option.
The cards will look best in color, but will also print out fine in grayscale. Simply print and cut along the guidelines. Laminate and use them again and again. Alternatively, you could print on cardstock. It works well to keep them in a baggie. Another option is to hole-punch a corner of each card and put them all on a ring.
