Are you worried about classroom management this year?
I have heard from a lot of teachers that they are a bit worried about heading back to the classroom because of how rough the last couple of years were with all of the classroom behavior issues.
There have been a lot of questions about how to manage behavior using the latest best practices so I invited my friend Allie Szczecinski from Miss Behavior onto the show to share some of her best tips for effectively managing behavior in your classroom.
Allie is a wife, mom, special educator, children's book author, and social-emotional learning coach. She creates resources with social-emotional learning and behavior focus on Teachers Pay Teachers and runs The Social Script Library, a monthly membership. With a master's degree and over 12 years of professional experience, she is a go-to resource for educators everywhere!
We all know that clip charts aren’t really recommended anymore, but there are things that you can do with your students to steer them away from behavior issues and encourage them to make the right decisions with positive reinforcement.
In Today’s Episode We Discuss:
- What to expect for the upcoming school year
- Why teaching routines and rules will take longer than usual this year
- How executive functioning skills are at the root of the problem
- The importance of having a calm corner
- How to make time for SEL
- The benefits of having a morning meeting
- Alternatives to clip charts
I hope this episode gave you some inspiration and fresh ideas for behavior management this year. I know the last couple of years have been tough, but these tips will help you start the year off on the right foot and manage your classroom in a more positive way.
