This week’s podcast is a little bit different because I decided to start doing some minisodes where it is just me, in your ear, talking to you about classroom related things. (Or, if you are more of a video person, you can watch the video recording on this topic.) This week I am talking to you about the 4 must have classroom behavior management plans you should be planning for!
At the time of this recording, summer has begun. At least for me! And I am a big supporter of taking the summer off to focus on you. We do one year worth of work in nine months. We deserve a break!
But, summer is also a great time to think objectively about what you want to change and implement in the upcoming school year. (Which, side note, go check out the Teacher Summer Reboot. They have a whole course on how to relax but also begin preparing for the upcoming school year!)
Types of Classroom Behavior Management Plans
There are four types of behavior management plans you need to have in place going into any school year. And if it is the middle of the school year when you come across this and realize you need to implement them. That’s okay too. Take a weekend to think through, write, and plan out your behavior management plans and then introduce them the start of the new week.
The four behavior management plans I talk about in this video are a whole group management plan, a small group plan, an individual plan, and an individual plan for the challenging student. This framework for classroom behavior management plans come from my undergrad and grad school professor. Part of our coursework was to write out each plan with lots of detail.
This past year I used a blend of my Classroom Economic System and the Hundreds Chart to manage my students.
And, like every year, I had a few “valuable players” that required the use of an individualized behavior plan.
I also shared about the Fines and Violations chart I had to make that “year from hell” so here is a picture of that for you visual learners!
