Classroom management is one of those things I never learned in college. All of my courses were designed around teaching reading or math. Social studies was even thrown in. ;) But never once did I take a course that was specifically for classroom management techniques. And really, how could it be. Managing a classroom is one of those things that comes with experience and "being in the trenches". You work out your own style and find what suits you best. It also isn't only about behavior. It is ALL of those things that help your classroom to run smoothly on a daily basis, especially how you and your students are organized.
Over the 14 years that I have been teaching, I have learned some tricks to management that work for me, so I thought I would share them with you. Here are a few ideas that span grade levels and will help you to have a successfully smooth year.
