5. Classroom Management

As "Respect" is our class rule, I will strive to positively encourage each child to speak and act respectfully.  There will be individual, group, and class rewards. The tools a teacher uses can change each year based on his or her students' needs and desires.  In addition to lots of praise, I may use stickers, tickets, group points, line privilege, earning gems for an academic movie party, and/or auctions or stores. I do plan to use a clip chart on a wall with "color" rewards to begin the year. Purple=Outstanding, Blue=Good Day, Green= Ready to Learn, Yellow=Think About It, Orange=Teacher's Choice, Red=Parent Contact.
