This post is loaded with 30 classroom management ideas for the Kindergarten, primary and elementary classroom! Classroom management tips and tricks for whole brain teaching, alternative seating, bucket fillers, etc.
Free behavior bracelets let parents know their child did great! I love this idea - maybe cut a few blank bracelets so that positive behavior comments can be customized to reflect child-specific behaviors
Help Wanted bulletin board. Pockets with classroom job descriptions. Write student names on craft sticks and place them in appropriate pocket. Fun and easy way to switch up student jobs throughout the year.
Potato head as a whole group behavior incentive. When the class is caught being good or behaving appropriately as a whole, we allow a student to add a Potato Head body part. Potato Head is completely together, we have a celebration.
Could maybe replace my dojo system somehow looking for a great classroom management strategy that kids and teachers will love? Classroom reward coupons are the perfect idea for handling behavior in a positive way!
