Today I am so excited to talk about one of my favorite topics:CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT!
I have said it before, classroom management was something I worked REALLY hard on over the years. One year I had the worst year of my life when it came to teaching and I vowed to never let it happen again. That summer was spent researching strategies. There were trial and errors after that, I feel like my next years were the best after implementing my strategies.
I think I can thank Ron Clark for that! I used a lot of this methods and let me tell you. THEY WORK.
Here is what I did to create a great classroom management plan:
1. On the first day of school I send home a copy of his Essential 55 rules (affiliate link).
2. Create the sense of family.
3. Behavior Charts: Do you or Don’t you???

I pair these with my behavior calendars:
4. Have patience
