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.
THE BIG BE’S

- Be the Best you can BE
- Be Selfish with your Education
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.
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.
