Teaching With a Mountain View: GROUPS Acronym
Group Expectations. I really liked this poster because it's fun and pleasant to look at. I think it's important to have classroom rules and expectations up around the classroom so the students have reminders about acceptable behavior.

I decided to post this freebie after the anchor chart from my blog was pinned thousands of times. I wanted to be able to provide teachers with a resource they could print out and use right away if they wanted to implement this classroom management idea!
