Rules and consequences are important.
Some teachers can have no formal rules or consequences at all and still keep order in their classrooms. They are in the minority, however.
Have a specific list of rules and consequences for your classes. Post them where everyone can see them. That way there can be no disputes or claims by students that they "forgot" your rules.
Save yourself a lot of trouble and post your rules and consequences prominently. You will be glad you did.
