Learning Adventures with Mrs. Gerlach: Motivational Magic! Great classroom management ideas for primary grades
This is the new update to my old use of "Warm Fuzzies" (still have a deep rooted love my old guidance counselor and his warm fuzzies and cold pricklies)... I saw the idea here on The Lemonade Stand and I even used her super cute label! Basically, you make the quiet critters with a pom-pom, heart-shaped foam piece (for the feet) and mini wiggle eyes. I tell my students that my "quiet critters" need a friend to take care of them, but they only can survive/like QUIET friends. GUESS WHAT? Instantly quiet class. The kids love them. My kids have named their quiet critters and made homes for them. Obsessed.
Kids get to keep a quiet critter on their desk as long as they are quiet and other behavior management ideas

Ask Me tag--one student serves as the "Ask Me" person while the teacher is working with a small group. All students will go to this person instead of interrupting the teacher, which wastes precious small group instruction time.

Neat Idea! One student is selected to be the "Ask Me" person (to help students who need assistance) while the teacher works with small groups-no disruptions for the teacher!!! - need to make this one of my class jobs this year
Neat Idea! One student is selected to be the "Ask Me" person (to help students who need assistance) while the teacher works with small groups- no disruptions for the teacher! Kids would love to take turns doing this!
"Ask Me" tag freebie download. One student will be assigned as the "Ask Me" person that other students will go to if they have a question/problem. Frees up the teacher to work in a small group or help individual students. Great for when you have a Sub too. Your go to student helper when a sub is in your classroom.

#WritersWorkshop How do your students show what they know? Students need the language of evidence in order to provide it and this chart is a GREAT starting point. You could easily create "evidence" book marks for students to use when they are reading, serving as a reminder of how to craft a written or oral response to the text.

NOISE…removing one letter at a time when our voice level gets too loud. When NO is left, there is NO more talking! Love this! A lot more clearer than just putting up strikes on the board or letting the noise escalate to a point where you just cut off talking. It also gives the kids a chance to regain control of their noise before it gets to that point.

Anger choice cards. ideas of ways to cool down so students have a choice to get them calm and back on task.
Choice Cards, Idea, For Kids, Social Skills, Anger Choice, Teaching Students, Classroom Management, Anger Management, Free Downloads
These cards were created for use in the classroom for students to use when they are angry, frustrated, irritated, or upset. We teach students that it is ok to feel these emotions, but that they need to express them "appropriately." A lot of students don't have the social backgrounds or cultural understanding of what "expressing emotions appropriately" might look like. Hopefully these cards can provide your students an idea of some options that will help them calm down in a manner that will not disturb or affect others. I tried to include choices that would be easy to accommodate in a classroom and that would take light prep work. :-) Use these in conjunction with a mini-lesson on anger management. You can either cut apart these cards to put on a ring, or you can just laminate the whole sheet to make a choice board. Please let me know if you have any questions! **Created by Mrs. Kilby at <a href="http://confessionsofaprimaryteacher.blogspot.com/">Confessions of a Primary Teacher</a>

8 Awesome Educational Infographics for Teachers ~ Did They Learn Anything?
Teachers often use them in lesson plans and they are looked for during observations, so why not make them part of the everyday language. Use them when talking to students. Use them in descriptions of projects or how to find something in the library. Instead of just being a teacher language, these words would be more beneficial if they are being used in as many places as possible in the school, including online.
