It's that time of year again. It seems that as soon as the 4th of July is over school is back on the brain. Are you thinking about classroom management? I know I always am. I feel like there's always ways to improve and grow as a teacher. Even after 15 years in the classroom! This week I'm sharing a couple of my classroom management tools that are my constants in my room year after year.
You've heard of learning targets, right? Have you ever thought about trying behavior learning targets? Let me tell you… they work!!! I've used these successfully for years to help students improve their behavior choices in the classroom one behavior at a time.
The theory behind these is that you can only target one behavior at a time. If you truly want students to experience success they can only focus on improving one behavior.
These targets are broken down into student-friendly language. There are charts with 5 spots for feedback and 10 spots for feedback. Give what you like to give in your classroom and what motivates that student. Stickers, check marks, smiley faces, etc…
