CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT PLAN


The best defense for running a safe and productive learning environment is to have engaging lessons plans while being very aware of everything going on in the classroom. In addition, you must have a clear set of classroom procedures and consequences.  It is vital for the teacher to have a positive, welcoming approach combined with strong and consistent expectations.  Sometimes just eye contact or proximity will put a student back on track.  It is essential to have a warm up activity and flowing lessons plans in order to keep discipline problems at the lowest possible level.  Using discipline with dignity and having a sense of humor are also key ingredients in an effective classroom management plan. Conversely, positive reinforcements must be a part of every classroom.  Most importantly, let students know that mistakes are welcome in this classroom as long as we learn from them.


CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS


THE BIG BE’S

-          Be Prepared

-          Be Honest

-          Be Respectful

-          Be Open-minded

-          Be a Team Player

-          Be Seated (raise hand when necessary)

-          Be the Best you can BE

-          Be Selfish with your Education


CONSEQUENCES


For a minor or first offense eye contact or proximity to student should be sufficient. In the case of a second offense use a verbal warning and require the student to say which classroom expectation is being broken. If there is a third offense, the student must write a letter explaining why classroom expectations are important and steps they can take to improve their behavior. If the problem continues a detention and a meeting or phone call with the student’s guardians may be warranted. 


REWARDS


For individual rewards, tickets will be handed out and put in a raffle jar.  Tickets can be given for such things as giving a good answer or idea, helpfulness etc. Raffle tickets will be picked every Friday and prizes can be things like, school store coupons, extra points on a test coupons, pencils, goodies, etc. Furthermore and most importantly a positive note, mailed home or a “good message” phone call or email goes a long way in boosting a child’s confidence and fosters a good relationship between home and school.
