My Classroom Management Strategies

Today's post may help me more than it helps any of my readers.  I am going back to full time teaching after taking last year off.  In the next few weeks I need to recreate a classroom management system.  I am so glad I blog.  I don't have to remember what I did.  I just have to look it up here.

After reviewing my posts tagged "Classroom Management," here are a few strategies I plan to implement this year. 

Privileges and Coupons: An Incentive System for Good Behavior
I know many teachers implement similar systems.  This post explains how I use it in my classroom and gives you free downloads.
 Classroom Procedures Review-- Here is where I list the procedures I teach students at the beginning of the year.  I leave a filled out copy in my substitute folder.

I will definitely use Rights, Responsibilities, and Privileges in setting up the culture of my fifth grade highly capable classroom.  Students define each term and come up with examples.  It is a good place to start creating classroom rules.

 For students who need a reminder of the correct behavior in class, I have them write sentences--not the old-fashioned way of filling a chalkboard, but one to three sentences to get them back on track.  Read the posts about Sentences to find out how I use these and get a copy of my reminders.

My post on If...Then charts was popular last year.  If you have a student that needs a behavior intervention, this helps.  I anticipate needing this strategy again this year.

Another strategy I have used with individual students is a buddy class.  Read this post here if you want to know how buddy classes worked for me and download a free printable form.

You can click here for all of my posts on Classroom Management.  I'm sure I will add to this topic this year.

If you have questions about any of these strategies, please include them in the comments.
