This is so sad. 10 years since September 11, 2001. The day will never be forgotten. Alot of innocent lives lost, but they will never be forgotten. Forever in our hearts. RIP to all who passed on this day.

I believe the classroom management my CT and I have set in place is good. Compared to other classrooms I have observed while completing my education coursework, I am impressed with how my CT put rules and procedures at the head of her list during the first weeks of school. We use the clip/colored stick method for behavior and it has seemed to be working. Students are given three chances on green before having to move to yellow. I like this because it allows the student to know he/she broke the rule but doesn’t completely ruin their day because they had to change their color. We also give many incentives so that students want to behave and follow rules/procedures. We give out “caught you being good” tickets throughout the week and on Friday draw names for different prizes. We also give class points and team points. The class receives a prize when they reach 15 points and whichever team has the most points at the end of the week, each student gets a prize. My students have had a hard time listening and following directions the first time so these incentives are great ways to motivate them.
I was raised in a very military style household. Both of my parents were in the Army, although my mother was honorably discharged soon after my birth, my father was in for 20+ years and recently retired earlier this year. I had to follow rules without any discussion. I was disciplined if I broke even the littlest rule. I was given allowance each week but only if I completed all of my chores. I think the way I was raised will make my classroom management more authoritative than others. I will make sure students know the rules and will not tolerate any misbehaving. I will immediately correct the behavior and will not hesitate to contact parents when students are consistently break rules.
I earn the respect of my students by developing a relationship with them but also making sure that they know that I am the teacher and they are the student. I also make sure to follow the same rules I expect of my students. If I am not following the rules, the I would lose their respect and they would not follow the rules either. I also try to be consistent with all consequences and incentives that are put into the classroom management plan.
I learned many things from watching the classroom management power point. Some things that stuck out the most were the 5 discipline techniques to avoid. I am naturally a very sarcastic person so I know I need to work on not being sarcastic with my students. This would minimize confusion and I would be able to get my point across clearly. I will also make sure to not embarrass students during class. I have called students out for misbehaving in front of the entire class and now that I have seen this power point, I am thinking that may not have been the best way to handle those situations.

I teach 1st grade and am looking for some activities to teach about September 11th. This is my first time in primary grades so Im having trouble thinking of things that are developmentally appropriate.

How to Teach a Classroom Management Plan
Just thought I would share. This goes great with the one posted last week about setting up a simple classroom management plan. One thing I wish was added to these articles about CM is that the tighter your lesson plan is, the less behavior issues you are going to have in your classroom.
