Need a fun classroom management activity to get kids focused and ready for the day? Teachers can set-up a DIY Question of the Day board with a drip pan and a few simple materials. Kids will love reading the different questions posted each school day!
Creating a Culture of Kindness in Your Classroom. The best way to promote kindness and caring behaviors in our classrooms is to model them. When we show our students what it LOOKS like and SOUNDS like to be kind, there is a far greater chance they will repeat those modeled behaviors. It is so important to remember that children watch their teachers all the time and listen to everything they say (especially when it’s not in a lecture).
This is a great diagram to have in the classroom to implement scaffolding. Duffy emphasized how important it is to scaffold in the classroom and assist into that transition into independent work. The diagram of I do, We do, You do is a great way to remind the chidlren of this strategy.
