What is your classroom identity? What do teachers and staff expect of students? What do students expect when they walk in the classroom? Classroom management is important for every teacher, regardless of subject and grade level. Teachers want to spend their time teaching, soan effective classroom management strategy can help minimize disruptions.
Anchor charts are an effective way to reinforce classroom management strategies and practices. Acrostics help students to retain information. Using relevant words can sum up rules, expectations, procedures, etc. The blog "Journey of a Substitute Teacher" created the two similar posters below (Groups & Partners). Because group work is common when teachers are away, it is important to remind students to maintain the rules they would normally follow. The last two posters can be used to emphasize classroom culture and character education.
