Free Classroom Management Idea...

When you hear the term 'classroom management', what kind of images does it conjure in your mind's eye? Is it an environment of curious initiative, confidence and self discipline? Or is it a quiet and rigid classroom where students and subdued by fear and intimidation? Yikes! Many teachers may think that classroom management is a Utopian endeavor (I used to be one of them) but I can tell you that you just have to find a system that works for you - your personality and your students.

Here are free classroom management behavior clip charts that are 'kid tested and teacher approved'. I cannot stress enough, the importance of classroom management. To make this even better for your students, you can add up to five little stickers on each clothes pin before it can be moved up to the net level. Or you can first let each child personalize his/her clothes pin with washi tape, markers or nail polish and glitter.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
