What if Everybody Did That? by Ellen Javernick This one should come standard with every primary classroom. The book goes through a day with a little one who does things without thinking, like feeding zoo animals despite the warning signs not to. He's got that same feeling that lots of kids do - that their actions won't make that big of a difference. But the community helpers in this book get him to think of what would happen if everybody did that.

What if Everybody Did That?: A good book to teach the need for rules and how our actions have consequences
First day class rules: I actually have this taped to the inside of my classroom door. After my students see these (and chuckle a little), my rules don't seem so bad.
A nice, efficient way to display what's important to your class. If the students are older, the teacher can write one example and the students can write their own "we do..." statement.
