Running a successful classroom as a teacher is not a task for the faint of heart. One of the key ingredients for classroom management we have found are solved with creative solutions like these.
1. Use Puzzles To Organize Your Students
“What a fun way to group students! Have them find their partners by matching puzzle pieces.” – Lexi DesPlanque
2. Classroom Management Is Made Easy With Checklists
Keep students focused when it is time to leave the classroom. This handy checklist will be your guide to creating an awesome checklist of your own.
3. Use Games To Encourage Positive Behavior In Your Classroom
When the compliment chain hits the floor the kids get a treat. This is motivation for your students to actively engage in positive classroom behavior.
4. Help Students Get A Grasp On Their Emotions
Smart teachers use movies as a teaching tools. Let’s not just watch the movie and be done with it. Let’s watch it with our students and use it as a continued, constant anchor for conversations about emotions.
5. Provide Instructions That Students Can Understand
Our favorite is the translation of whispering as “Spy Talk”. This is such a creative way for students to enjoy following directions.
