Classroom Management Plan

By Charlene Wilder

Daily Schedule: I will visually let my students know what they are going to be doing
during the class period by posting the days activities on the board.
Physical Space: I will arrange the desks facing forward toward where I will stand
during lectures. I will also include some group work into the content that I will be
teaching, at which time, tables would be more helpful. If tables are not available, the
desks will have to be moved into small sections that would accommodate group work.
I will have a few posters on the bulletin board that I will change periodically throughout
the year. Some of the posters will have positive affirmations on them, some will have
pictures/content relevant to the content the class is covering, and some space will be
designated for some of the rules and procedures that I find need to be displayed. I will
file student work in a locked file cabinet as well as the grade book and any other
documents that contain personal information. Lesson plans, TEKS, curriculum guides,
strategies, and other materials that are regularly used will be kept either in my desk or
somewhere else that is easily accessible such as a storage cart.
Attention Signal: I will move to a specific location in the classroom to signal that class
is about to begin. This will be covered the first day while discussing the rules and
procedures. I will also use a chime for an attention signal. I think the chime has a
soothing sound but it also lets the students know that it is time for class to start, or time
to change direction in the classroom. I will give positive feedback by acknowledging
good behaviors, and I will give corrective feedback by moving in the direction of the
students not responding to the signal, rules, or procedures. If this doesnt work, I will
meet with the student(s) after school, assign lunch detention, or send a note home.
Beginning/Ending Routines:
Before the bell rings I will greet my students at the door.
Learning the names quickly I will have students raise their hands when the
roll is called so I can associate faces with names. I will also have each student
fill out a paper or card with their names, hobbies, and interests to help me get to
know each student personally.
Seating chart for the first day I will not have a seating chart on the first day. I
will wait a few days to get to know the students better before assigning seats.
Starting the class I will start the class by greeting the students and asking
how their day is going. Then, I will explain what we will be doing in class that
day.

Handing out books/materials First I will learn what procedures the teachers
are using at the school I will be teaching at for handing out books to see if there
are any special forms that need to be filled out. Then, I will assign an easy
content activity to be done while I call each student to the front of the desk to
assign the book to the student, recording their book numbers and noting any
damage to the book.
Immediately after the bell rings - I will give students a short activity to do such
as: copy the outline for the days activities in their notebooks, answer a brief
question regarding the content that was covered the day before, or complete a
simple puzzle or handout related to that weeks content. Also, on some days I
will incorporate showing a short video of what is going on in the news related to
the content that I will be teaching and have the students answer a few questions
about the video. This will help the students learn how the material that they are
learning is relevant to the world they live in.
Taking attendance I will check with the school to find out what procedures
they use for recording class attendance and reporting attendance to the office. I
will take attendance, and take care of any other administrative, duties while the
students are doing the beginning of class short activity.
Dealing with tardy students First I will find out what the schools policy is
regarding tardiness. If the school does not have a policy regarding tardiness, I
will develop a procedure of my own. If the student does not have a valid reason
for being tardy, I will give a warning for the first incident, and then for each tardy
after that, I will give the student lunch detention. If that doesnt solve the
problem, then a note will be sent to the parents concerning their childs tardiness.
Dealing with students who come to class without necessary materials
This will be discussed in the first few days of class as a rule that each student
must have all necessary materials when they come to class. Occasionally things
do happen and something gets left at home. If, however, there are students that
continuously come to class without the necessary materials, first I would like to
find out why. Then, possibly lunch detention or a note home to the parents
explaining how important it is for the student to be prepared for class and to bring
all necessary materials to class in order to make the most out of their class time.
Wrapping up at the end of the day/class period I will let students know when
it is close to the end of class that they should finish what they are working on,
cleanup in the area they are working in, and put their materials away so that
when the bell rings they are ready to go to their next class.
Dismissal I will have a rule that the students are to remain in their seats until I
dismiss them so that I can make sure everything is ready for the next class. This
will be explained in the rules and procedures of the class.

Student Work:
Assigning homework Students need to clearly understand the assignments
given to them so I will explain the assignment to the students orally as well as
post it onto the board for them to copy into their notebooks and ask if they have
any questions regarding the assignment.
Keeping records of student grades - First I will have to check with the school I
am working at to determine if there are specific policies that I need to follow.
Then I will have to determine a grading system based on class participation,
homework, quizzes, major exams, projects, and extra-credit work.
Giving students feedback about their performance and progress I will give
regular feedback to the students so they can monitor their progress in the class.
For some daily assignments and homework, I will involve students in checking
them so the feedback will be immediate. For other assignments and projects that
may take more time to complete, I will break the assignment or project into parts
and review progress at different checkpoints to let the student know how they are
progressing and make revisions if necessary.
Assessment: The first day I will have an open-ended discussion with the students to
find out what they already know about the subject. This will help them start assessing
what they will be learning, and allow me to get to know the students. Sometimes during
a discussion students find they know more about a subject than they knew. After a day
or two, I will give a small pretest to help me understand more fully how I need to teach
the content.
Rewards/Incentives: Rewards and incentives help to build a positive atmosphere in
the class and promote good student behaviors. Students who follow the class rules and
procedures and exhibit good behaviors should receive an award or incentive not only to
give them motivation to continue to do so but also to influence other students as well.
First I will have to check with the school to find out what the school policies are for
rewards and incentives. I will also ask other teachers what rewards/incentives they find
especially helpful to reward and motivate students. Some rewards and incentives I like
are replace-a-grade, no homework passes, lotteries, and gift certificates.
Websites: I would also like to include the use of websites as part of my classroom
management plan. I will be using the schools website to post the rules and procedures
of the classroom as well as send a copy of the rules and procedures home for the
student and parents to sign. I think parental involvement is key to a childs success. I
will also use the website to post assignments and grades so that the student and the
parents have constant access as to what the student is doing, and to assess how the
student is doing.
