GROUPS Acronym Poster for Classroom Management. The "Original" GROUPS Poster! I decided to post this FREEBIE after the anchor chart from my blog was pinned thousands of times. I wanted to be able to provide teachers with a resource they could print out and use right away if they wanted to implement this classroom management idea!
I’m a big fan of one-on-one conferencing with students as a way to connect with them and check for understanding. I use this “deli-style” format with students as a fun way to let them know it is their turn to conference with me. Each student is given a ticket (from 1 to how ever many students you have in class) at the beginning of class and meets me at the designated conference area in the room when they hear the “DING!” and their number appears on the projector screen. Kids love it!
By intentionally taking time to build a positive community in your classroom, you can ease the challenges of classroom management, improve student attitude toward learning, and create an environment where students feel welcomed and supported.

I saw this wonderful idea in pInterest. It caught my attention as a nice straightforward, stand alone solution to behavior management. I am very interested to know how you would use this in class. It looks a great idea, but I would like some input from someone who has used this successfully or indeed unsuccessfully.
