  3. 3. Classroom Management Plan <ul><li>My first article I chose is about Classroom Management and how every classroom needs to have one. </li></ul><ul><li>The article lists 3 top ways in order to have an effective classroom </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1. Stay Positive: If you are negative, then your students will be negative and that can only be a bad thing for your classroom management. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2. Praise, praise and more praise: If you want good classroom management from your students then praise them whenever you have the opportunity. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>3. Use the language of choice: Instead of telling children to do something, explain to them that you would like to them to chose to do something. </li></ul></ul>Classroom Management Plan - Top 3 Ways to improve your classroom management overnight By: Lee Davies Click Me
  4. 4. Top 3 Ways to Improvement <ul><li>1. Stay Positive: I have seen this happen in several classrooms at my daycare, especially on Fridays. Lee Davies states a good point “If you can walk into your classroom with a smile on your face you will get a much more positive reaction from your students.” </li></ul><ul><li>2. Praise, praise and more praise: Praising does help the students, even younger children. Trying praising a child when he/she writes their first word or finally writes the 3 the right way instead of backwards. </li></ul><ul><li>3. Use the language of choice: In the definition of choice Davies uses a quote, “An example of this would be explaining to John I would like you to choose to sit down quietly, as opposed to saying sit down quietly.” When I heard this, to me it does work because I’ve done it at the daycare with pre-k children. However, I have also tried to do this with the 2 year olds and they do not act the same. For some reason giving 2 year olds choices means they will do what you don’t want them to do. In my opinion you have to be careful with the word “choice” in certain grade levels. </li></ul>Classroom Management Plan - Top 3 Ways to improve your classroom management overnight By: Lee Davies
  5. 5. Personal Reflection <ul><li>After reading the article Classroom Management Plan - Top 3 Ways to improve your classroom management overnight By: Lee Davies it made me realize how important classroom management is needed. In order to have a positive classroom management you need to make sure you keep negativity out of the classroom even on your bad days. Also you need to make sure you praise your students, even the worst students in your class do things that deserve praising. Lastly give the students a choice if they want to play with a puzzle or play with the drums. Even though you’re their teacher the students have minds of their own as well. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Students vs. Instructions <ul><li>My second article was about students following instructions the first time they are given. </li></ul><ul><li>When giving instructions teachers need to make sure that they give detailed and specific instructions. Especially when you are in a stressful situation your directions need to be clear, in order for the students to follow your instructions every time. </li></ul><ul><li>By giving directions that are specific teachers lower the need to raise their voice and become frustrated at the situation. </li></ul><ul><li>“ The key is that the child's options are reduced to a minimum and they know exactly what is expected of them and exactly what they have to do in order to succeed. Isn't that better than repeating a command over and over again, becoming more frustrated each time we are ignored?” This quote I completely agreed with! </li></ul>Effective Classroom Management Is About Getting Pupils To Follow Your Instructions Every Time. By: Rob Johnson Click Me
  7. 7. What’s the Secret <ul><li>There is one quote by Rob Johnson that I could relate to, “At every stage, if a child misbehaved in any way they were sent back to the previous door to have another go at following the instructions properly. And in their eagerness to get to the yard, they complied every time!” </li></ul><ul><li>This happens often at the daycare I work at when we go outside or are in the ball pit. There are several children who you have to remind to be quiet several times and if they are not quite then they have to sit beside the teachers for however long you want. </li></ul>Effective Classroom Management Is About Getting Pupils To Follow Your Instructions Every Time. By: Rob Johnson
  8. 8. Personal Reflection <ul><li>After reading Effective Classroom Management Is About Getting Pupils To Follow Your Instructions Every Time By: Rob Johnson I realized that teachers first need to think about the instructions that were given and then act on how the students behaved. The reasoning is that teachers or anyone when put in a stressful environment make snap decision being correct or not. When put in this position instructions may be given that aren’t clear and therefore make the students even more frustrated then before. Teachers need to stick with their instructions as a result the students will listen the first time and not ignore them on purpose. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Classroom Behavior <ul><li>When speaking of classroom behavior you first need to get to know your students in order to discover their types of behavior. </li></ul><ul><li>After you show that your interested in your students individually they will then soon learn to respect you and even trust you. When I was younger my favorite teachers were the ones that I trusted enough to talk to. </li></ul><ul><li>In the article there was an activity called “Record Card” that students filled out questions about themselves. After filling out the questions teachers were able to relate to the students more. </li></ul><ul><li>For one of my classes I have to shadow a teacher and at the elementary school I went to she had every child fill out a piece of paper with questions on it at the beginning of the school year. By doing this she could quickly relate to the students by reading over the questions. </li></ul><ul><li>On the next slide the article gives you ideas on what to do with the information you receive from the students to help classroom behavior. </li></ul>The Number One Secret to Getting Your Worst Pupils to Behave.

  10. 10. Classroom Behavior (continued) <ul><li>Tailor rewards to a pupil's interests making them have more effect. (if you have a pupil who's nuts about a certain breed of dog there's no point in giving him a sticker with a car on it!) </li></ul><ul><li>Provide reading material - magazines, journals and books - that relate to their specific areas of interest - for break times, quiet reading sessions, registration etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Plan really, really interesting lessons! I'm talking about lessons that grab them from the word go and hold their attention all the way through. This is only possible when they're actually interested in what you're talking about. You might choose to plan a series of lessons for the whole class around a topic that several pupils are interested in, or cover a skill such as narrative writing and encourage them to write a story about their subject of interest. </li></ul><ul><li>Use them as a relationship-building tool. They enable you to strike up conversation on a topic you know they're interested in and this is crucial with 'hard to reach' kids - it shows you care about them and are interested in them as people. Being able to chat with a pupil on their level is magical and is the short-cut to having far fewer discipline problems. </li></ul>The Number One Secret to Getting Your Worst Pupils to Behave. By Rob Johnson
  11. 11. Teacher-Student Relationship <ul><li>“ The secret ingredient is... the teacher-pupil relationship.” This quote stuck out to me while I was reading the article. </li></ul><ul><li>This quote was all about teacher-student relationship and it made me realize how true that is. Going back to the daycare that I work at you can see in different classrooms how the teachers have a special relationship with each child. The teachers with the older classrooms have their students done to exactly how they act when their tired to their favorite color. </li></ul><ul><li>I agree that once you get to know your students the classroom seems more relaxed and the children do not seem like they are walking on nails because everything is out in the open. </li></ul>The Number One Secret to Getting Your Worst Pupils to Behave. By Rob Johnson
  12. 12. Personal Reflection <ul><li>After reading the article The Number One Secret to Getting Your Worst Pupils to Behave by Rob Johnson I realized that in order to have a good classroom behavior you need to be able to have a teacher-pupil relationship with your students. You could easily do the “Record Card” activity to find out what your students enjoy, ask their parents certain topics, or just ask they casually one to one. After you build the teacher-pupil relationship, your students will start to trust you and respect you which only makes classroom behavior and management even better! Once you know what your students enjoy you could do little things to make them realize that you do care and know what their interests are. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Conclusion <ul><li>In the end I read three articles: The Number One Secret to Getting Your Worst Pupils to Behave by Rob Johnson, Effective Classroom Management Is About Getting Pupils To Follow Your Instructions Every Time By: Rob Johnson , and Classroom Management Plan - Top 3 Ways to improve your classroom management overnight By: Lee Davies, all of my articles had to do with some type of classroom management. Either the management was by getting your worst student to listen, having your students listen the first time you give instructions, or improving classroom management. When you become a teacher classroom management is very important because everyone wants to enjoy their classroom and have everything move along smoothly. When you are a teacher their will be stressful moments but if you are clear and stick with your instructions as a result your students will listen the first time. Also there will be days when its just one of those days and even the teacher is grouchy. Especially with younger children if you do not walk in with a smile on your face then most likely the whole day is ruined. Younger children are happy when your happy. Depending on the age level you as a teacher can give the right of choice to your students. When doing centers you could give the student a choice of either doing art or reading a book, which ever one they choose is their choice. All in all teachers need to develop a relationship with each and everyone of their students. In order for the year to go smoothly you need to make an effort to get to know your students and see what they enjoy! By following these suggestions your classroom management will go much smoother. </li></ul>
