Classroom Management Ideas
A slight disclaimer...being that I've just got back into blogging and I've decided to gear this blog more toward teaching...I don't have a lot of pictures of my personal use.
With that being said, I have found similar ideas to share with you.
I have tried lots of different management techniques over the years. I'm going to share a few that I find are most successful.
This is the system I used last year.
My students are numbered so I would move a magnet over their number. (This is actually my picture!)
Since I am team teaching this year, I decided to use the clip chart system to keep things the same between my teaching partner and my classroom.
I'm using Teri's version over at A Cupcake for the Teacher.
She has the file for free in her TpT Store! Be sure to leave some feedback if you download it!
Cookie Compliments which is similar to Brownie Points.
This is from Mrs. Heeren's Happenings who also offers it as a freebie.
I use this for when my students earn a compliment from another teacher or they have great behavior during special area.
I use something similar to this for my groups. I use it mainly for transitions!
These are a couple of things I use at crazier times of the year (Christmas, end of year, etc)
If you haven't heard about Class Dojo...you must check it out. It's an online behavior management software. Seriously...go check it out!
Students who are following directions get to sign the board. Then I call several bingo spots at the end of the day to win a little something special.
One more day of Teacher Week!
