Classroom Management

I won't by any means claim to be a classroom management guru but I implement a variety of ideas from different sources that have certainly helped me over the years.  First please read Harry Wong's book The First Days of School.   

Even as a veteran teacher I read it again over the summer and got fresh ideas...go figure.

Having little things in place makes a huge difference.  A strong discipline plan, rewards, rewards, rewards, procedures, clear expectations, consistency just to name a few.

Here are some of my ideas that work for me:

Morning procedures ** see procedure and organization page**

 

Table points (see above photo), the table with the most points earns the coveted chair pockets that my mother in law made.  These are great fun and I only have 4 so they have to earn them.

 

 

 

Here is a picture of my behavior management board, the students are very clear of how it works and how to earn REWARDS in my class.

 

 

 

 

 

We can earn links on a compliment chain, our chain is almost complete.  When it hits the floor we will have a PIZZA party!! 

 

 

We also have another whole class incentive...I write a mysterious message on the board ( but I only leave blanks for each letter ) and when they do well at one of their specials or while working nicely in class they receive a letter.  They try to figure out the sentence early on...Once the sentence is complete they get what the sentence says.

Ideas:  We have earned a popsicle party.

We have earned a class ball.

We will have a crazy hat day.

We have earned an extra recess.

We have earned indoor games.

We have earned an extra P.E.

The kids LOVE this and are always trying to figure out what the message says.

 

Here is an easy way to take attendance and lunch count at the same time.  Children start out the day on the empty column, they move their picture magnet either to buying or bringing.  The ones left in the empty column are absent.

 

 

When your class goes to an assembly or P.E., etc. you can use this wheel on your door so people can find you if they need you or a student is being checked out early, etc.
