Brag Bracelets are an awesome classroom management tool and have been super popular in my classroom. Students work hard to earn them and are super excited when they receive one! I particularly love the fact that students get to take them home which helps to create a positive teacher/parent communication channel. This pack includes 24 different BLACK AND WHITE brags bracelets to use for multiple occasions. I print them on bright colored paper and they look super cute!!!
Bubble Gum Blurt Chart - this is something I created for my class to help encourage self control during instruction time. my students have 3 chances (3 pieces of gum per week) and if they interrupt or blurt out a piece is removed from their name and put into the LOST BUBBLES bucket. If they have any pieces left at the end of the week, they will receive a price of bubble gum. Hopefully this will help cut down on interruptions and talking out.
Teaching students how to behave during the first few weeks of school will completely make or break your classroom for the entire school year. That’s A LOT to take in and A LOT of pressure. I always find it incredibly beneficial to incorporate classroom behavior books into my lessons when teaching good and bad behaviors. They allow students to relate to the characters in the book and they can see examples of what it is expected of each of them when they are at school.
Exit Ticket - great idea! Use a dry erase board with the question. Have students line up and whisper answer to teacher on the way to lunch! No paper! I like it better as the students enter the room from after lunch - it would help to calm them down quickly and help avoid all the talking before getting to their chair.
