After spending 20+ years in the classroom, I became an Instructional Specialist--and then a Curriculum Coordinator. Without fail, one of the most critical needs I observe when I go into teachers' classrooms is for a simple, straightforward (but effective) Discipline Management System that will hold students accountable and NOT require constant trips to the office.
I bundled the system I used during the last 15 years with my own classroom. I've had the opportunity to share this with a multitude of struggling teachers while coaching them, and I have yet to see anyone not have success with it. When this simple system is utilized with consistency while simultaneously getting to know your students, you will capture their hearts AND have a well-oiled machine of a classroom that won't require raising your voice a single time.
Included in this product are the Three Strikes Classroom Management system explanation and procedures sheets, a Critical Tips for Success sheet, a sample detention slip sheet, a 3 Strikes Directions sheet that is projected on the overhead when the class reaches Three Strikes, an Elbow Partners presentation to use when teaching the technique to students, and a quick Elbow Partner activity to be used on the day that students are partnered-up for the first time.
Here's to a smooth, problem-free, and successful school year! :)
