Classroom Management Strategies

During the summer months it is typical for teachers to re-evaluate their classroom set up, curriculum, and even management strategies. I am always looking for tried and try suggestions from other professionals to make the classroom run more smoothly!  Here are a few ideas from fellow readers, parents, and teachers.

Teacher Blog Spot has put together a thought provoking list of 33 classroom procedures to consider before the school year begins.
Caroline from Learning Parade offers a free download for a document she uses to manage noise levels within the classroom.  It is a traffic light system, sometimes known as a "chatter tracker."

Learning Parade also shares Good Listening Mini Posters. They are a fantastic visual aid to display, reminding children what good listening looks like.
