Classroom Management Fun

I don't know about you, but I love a little novelty when it comes to classroom management.  We are a PBIS school and we also use a program called PAX.  In addition to both systems, which are awesome, BTW, I add in a few of my own fun things!  Today's post is all about a few little "extras" that I do!

First up are these Quiet Critters from Oriental Trading.  I get them out occasionally and tell the kids if I see them working quietly, I might put one on their desk.  Suddenly, the room is SILENT!  Everyone loves having a little "friend" close by while they work, right?!  The kids do not keep these.  They just get to keep it on their desk during the activity.  The box of critters was $19.99 for a set of 36.

The second "extra" that I do to help reinforce positive behavior is send home "POSITIVE NOTES."  I try to do this as often as possible.  It really only takes a second to fill one out and send it home.  I try to choose 1-2 students a day to receive positive notes.  The pack includes notes for specific behaviors as well as general "Good Day" notes.  Click below to check them out!  You'd be surprised at what a difference sending these home makes!!

Another thing that I do to encourage teamwork and build commaradirie in the classroom are these "WHOLE GROUP CLASSROOM REWARDS."  I select 2-3 and have the kids vote on which one we should work on.  I display the reward on a bulletin board and the class works towards earning letters.  The letters can be earned for a variety of things...hallway behavior, substitute behavior, you name it!  Possibilities are endless!  The class LOVES these so much!
