instead of a padle board, try these methods for behavior management. Insipired by the master of management

Student self-evaluation to share at parent/teacher conferences. Love this idea!!!!

Great lesson to your kids about exactly what SELF CONTROL is!! It is brilliant! After he does it, he helps the kids connect the lesson to other aspects of the day!

Add an icon so students sit at same spot for small groups every time. Eliminates time wasted due to seating arguments and reinforces a skill- shapes, colors, etc. Can change the skill throughout the year according to what you want to concentrate on and keep it interesting.

***************** My favorite classroom management site so far. If only I had it while student teaching. It will help me become a calmer, quieter teacher. My goal is to rarely raise my voice this year. All my new teacher friends check it out! - AB **********************

"This is one of my FAVORITE classroom management tools!! It can be soooo time consuming to answer the questions...Can we use markers?, Do we turn this in?, Is this a talking activity? I love using these assignment choice signs to answer those questions without me doing the work. Once I give directions for an activity, I quickly place checks and X's by the cards and my students know exactly where to look for the answer."

SO MANY classroom prize ideas, that cost me nothing, but they will LOVE!!

Research based ideas on how to set up your room

Whole class management tool- when the class works together, they get a piece to a puzzle. When the puzzle is complete, they earn a reward! brilliant.

1st year teacher book- it's FREE!

Hang a ring above each table. Each time the entire table is on task and doing what they are supposed to do-they earn a monkey! (from Barrel of monkeys game) You just hang one on the ring! When they get 5 monkeys they get a reward:) Cute...if I ever have a low ceiling again

Great idea for the classroom! fromTeachers Notebook

Great idea of numbering your mailboxes without ruining them with stickers/labels! These just clip right on and off!

Easy and adorable No Name board. Clip papers that don't have names on them to the board and have students go check there instead of spending your time trying to figure out who they belong to! Will do!!

For notes, lunch money, etc. Love this because you always have kids coming to you every morning with different things to give you!
