Create clear expectations and outline classroom procedures in writing with this classroom handbook. Excellent management tool. No one will ever say, "I didn't know that..." since everything is clearly stated.
HINT: Make one copy for students and one for parents. Send one copy home with parents on the first night of school. Spend the first days of school going through the handbook with students, who will keep it in their desk, so that they're clear about your expecations. Take time to practice procedures (modeling is key).
Preview includes first two pages (of 12) of the handbook.
