Making It Work: Classroom Management Toolkit
Classroom Management Toolkit
Around this time of year, classroom management problems can seem to pop up. The excitement and busyness of the holiday season is over, the weather can be problematic, and indoor recess – ugh! This week we are sending out a collection of tools for your toolbox; a look back at some of our popular classroom management posts. Holly Walton may inspire you to refresh some classroom procedures and head off problems before they start. Jennifer Bailey shares her tips that “really work” and advises on setting up a safe space for kids to reset and refresh instead of act out. I have also included two reviews of books that focus on classroom management strategies you may wish to read on your own or with your PLC! In February and March, we folk dance and move as much as we can in my classroom to keep everyone busy and moving. Winter is also when I bring out the tubanos for the intermediate classes. What are strategies and tips to be happy and learning with your students even when we have a bit of cabin fever? Please share your tips in the comments on the blog so we can help each other “Make it Work!”
