Bring the “Force” into your classroom this year with this Star Wars Classroom Management Pack. The following are descriptions of how I use the elements in my classroom, but you can obviously use them any way you want!
Jedi’s in Training Behavior Chart – I hang header with the three posters underneath “I need time to finish my homework”, “I need time to think” and “Recess Ready” on a bulletin board. I have one close pin for each student. All students start on “Recess Ready” but are moved because of behavior and/or not having their homework. It is an easy way to glance over before recess and see who I have to check-in with at recess.
The Force is Strong with Me Today – I keep this poster on my magnetic white board. I have a magnet with each students’ name on it. When the students come in the classroom in the morning, they have to move their magnet to “The Force is Strong with Me Today”. It’s an easy way to keep track of who is absent and establishes a routine in the morning.
Please Stop Your Behavior Chips – I copy and laminate a bunch of these chips before the school year starts. When I want a minor behavior to stop, I drop one on a child’s desk without saying anything. This also is a visible and tangible “warning” before your close pin is moved.
Thinking About My Behavior – I use this for incidents that do not really warrant a detention. This is a great way to “track” minor incidents and I really like that the students are award of the consequence if the incident happens again.
Homework Heroes – I have another set of magnets around this poster. At the beginning of the week, all students start with their magnets on/around the poster. When a child does not have their homework, they have to move their magnet. Whoever is left at the end of the week gets a small prize.
Desk/Misc. Labels – you can use these as desk labels or for general classroom organization.
Jedi of the Week- At the end of the week, I chose one boy and one girl as the “Jedi of the Week”. They fill out this organizer about themselves and I hang it in the room. In my classroom, they are in charge of feeding the class pet for the week.
Table Numbers – I have these hanging from the ceiling in my classroom above my desk clusters. It is an easy way to collect papers, line up, etc.
