2.  Listen when others are talking: don’t talk over the person that has permission to speak, no talking while others are talking, no interrupting, no blurting out comments, no “helping” by answering for the teacher, no across the room communication of any kind (e.g. “cross-talk”, flirting, gestures, conversations,(aloud or “mouthing”), comments, etc.), no chanting (this includes oohhs and awhss). 


3. Speak respectfully in a pleasant tone of voice.


4.  Keep hands, feet, objects, (gum, chewed gum, spit balls, etc.), and body, to yourself, this includes being seated when instructed to do so and only being in appropriate areas of the classroom.
