|Classroom management is a very essential part of having
a successful classroom. If your classroom is well managed
the students will easily transition from one subject to the
next, pay attention when needed, as well as have very few
behavior problems. The less time you spend on classroom
management the more time there is for instruction. Here are
a few techniques used by licensed teachers that can help
your classroom be successfully managed.|
Here is a homework pass that can be
used with grades 3 and up. Cut them out and pass them out to
students as a reward. I usually have them staple it to the
homework they are going to use the coupon on.
Signals are one way to get students’ attention. Signals can
be silent, verbal, visual, or musical. It is important to
have some type of signal that everyone knows means stop,
look, and listen.
GIVE ME FIVE (PreK-6)
Teacher puts his or her hand in the air. When students see
this they are to put their hand in the air just like the
teacher. Having your hand in the air means that
1. Mouth is Quiet
2. Eyes on the Teacher
3. Hands in your lap.
4. Ears Listening
5. Be still.
BELL OR CHIMES
Use a bell or chimes to make a sound to get the students
attention. This can be a great tool. It can be used as a
signal for the students to do something as well. Perhaps to
clean up or move to the next task.
1-2-3 Eyes on Me
Teachers says, “1-2-3 Eyes on Me” to get students attention.
This can be modified for elementary students by doing the
Teacher says, “1-2-3 Eyes on Me”
Students respond, “1-2 Eyes on You”
Shut off the lights. It doesn’t make any noise and is sure
the get the students attention and quiet the room.
REWARDS AND CONSEQUENCES
A successful classroom management system often includes
positive reinforcement as well as consequences. Students are
rewarded for showing positive behaviors. When students show
negative behaviors or break classroom rules they receive a
consequence such as taking away a privilege. There are many
different techniques you can use to have successful
classroom management. Here a just a few…
Make a stop light out of wood. Write each students name on a
closepin. The students start everyday on green. If they
break a rule once they move to yellow as a warning. If they
break a rule twice they move to red and receive a
consequence such as taking away a privilege. See examples of
rewards and consequences.
THREE STRIKES YOUR OUT
If a student misbehaves write or have them write their name
on the board. If it happens twice have them put a check
after it. If it happens a third time and there is a second
check they will receive a consequence. Students who don’t
get their name on the board at the end of the week may
receive a reward. See examples of rewards and consequences.
At the beginning of the week give each student 3-6 sticks
depending on the level. (Less for older students) If the
students misbehaves or is not prepared a stick is taken
away. If the students still have sticks at the end of the
week they receive a prize. See lists of rewards below.
Students will receive tickets for misbehaving. Start new
1 Ticket- Warning
2 Tickets- Consequence
3-Tickets- Call Home
4- Tickets- Principal’s Office
This often works better for younger students. Each student
receives a sticker chart. Students can have stickers taken
away for misbehaving or earn extra stickers for making good
choices. When student fills sticker chart they can pick a

($.50) For example, once they save up enough money they can
buy things from the classroom store such as pencils, toys,
etc. This is also a great tool because they are using math
skills and learning valuable life skills such as saving
