This month I am sharing classroom management tips to make your life a bit easier less-overwhelming. Let’s face it, teaching is HARD!
My tips include: something OLD, something NEW, something BORROWED, and something TRUE!
Absences happen! Students get sick, have appointments, throw up, etc. Inevitably, students will be out of your class and missing your instruction for a multitude of reasons. While instruction is tricky to make-up, keep your students accountable for gathering missed work by using a bulletin board space in your classroom for missed work. At the end of each school day, I place any extra assignments in these folders and students are directed to get them upon their return. It keeps my desk clear of extra paperwork and allows students to grab what they missed. A win-win!
Champs Display! DO you utilize CHAMPS in your classroom, if so, grab this NEW display I just created. Mine needed a refresher. If you have no idea what CHAMPS is, grab it anyway because you may find that you are already needing an overhaul of your classroom management strategy.
