This year I decided to try something new regarding my class rules. One piece of advice you always receive is to state rules positively, as in "do this," rather than "do not do that." So instead of having class "rules" I decided to try class "goals." I explained to students that these are the things we strive for in class every day (but we understand that some days we just aren't there).
All of this is coming from the 40 Hour Teacher Workweek Club. I take no credit for the goals I am using (they all came from the club), but I do take credit for the signs that I am sharing in this post.
