This package of resources is to help you get organized for back to school or at any time!
I have included many strategies for classroom and behavior management. The strategies and ideas are simple, practical and ready to use. Whether it's September or May, it's never too late to try something new.
There are over 125 pages within this document. Included are:
-20 fun hands-on activities and ideas to spice up your lessons, incorporate as review, starters, incentives or to build a classroom community (some perfect activities for the first days of school)
-20 behavior strategies and suggestions to build relationships with and manage the behavior of all students - especially difficult students
-2 Classroom management plans: "The Clipboard" and "Points Weeks". These plans are simple to implement immediately, are structured and utilize natural consequences and rewards.
-5 Ideas for Enrichment
-Suggestions and printables for handling homework more effectively
-Class Cash: A system of positive reinforcement
-A brief activity that will trick your students into reading and following written instructions
-Sample certificates for students
-Simple printable birthday cards for students (one way to help build relationships)
-10 inspirational quotes (ready to print and use as posters)
-A bulls-eye for the paper airplane activity
-rule sheets for the card games
-A complete fundraising guide that includes everything you need to run this successful fundraiser. (Fundraisers are great opportunities for students to do something that's worthwhile and are a change from regular class work. This fundraiser is geared around Easter, but it would be great at the end of the year, anytime really.)
You will get many templates that are ready for you to customize (or print as-is). Some examples of these are:
-tracking sheets for my classroom management system
-monthly report sheets to communicate with parents
-various parent letters explaining my systems
-a chart to record students' birthdays
-sample birthday cards
-various organizational sheets for the fundraiser, including a letter explaining the fundraiser to other staff members

-a system to organize the paperwork associated with keeping track of missing homework/assignments
-sheets to record information from parent meetings or phone calls
-printable class cash ($1 and $5)
-sample student certificates (to promote positive contact with home)
-sheets to explain systems to substitutes
-10 inspirational posters
If you need a complete classroom management plan, or just some new suggestions for a few difficult students that you will inevitably encounter, you'll find something that you can incorporate easily into your teaching from this package of resources. Perfect for back to school!
(Some of the resources in this package are also posted separately and/or in combined packages in my TpT store.)
