Classroom

Management Plan
EDU 5310
By: McKel Gurney

Preamble
When it comes to a classroom management plan there is not
a correct answer or one way to have management in the classroom.
Classroom management is constantly changing and certain plans
work with some students and some dont. However, it is crucial to
have a plan set in place so that your students know where you
stand and that you are consistent. When teachers have good
management they are creating a safe environment for students.
This allows students the freedom to learn and to take risks. Along
the lines of a safe environment students need to know that the
teacher cares about them and that the teacher knows their
students. It is also important that you, as the teacher, follow to who
you are and also what to what you do (Smith, 2004, pg 7).
Teachers want to teach their students. Often times teachers
get so caught up in teaching the common core when it is also
important to teach students life skills. When management is in
place, students are learning real life skills. They are learning about
discipline. Students are also learning the valuable skill of a
democracy. Having a classroom management plan in place has so
many benefits and is crucial to have a successful learning
environment. Therefore, creating a classroom management plan will
make your job as a teacher easier in the long run.

Preventative Techniques
Classroom Rules
1. Be Respectful
2. Be Responsible
3. Be Safe
Building Community/Team Building
Sportsmanship PE (SPE) This enjoyable behavioral method is
key for a positive classroom. SPE teaches students many life skills
that can be used throughout life. During SPE they learn about being
respectful and kind to one another. Expressing positivity towards
others is key. Each day they will have the opportunity to play a
game as a class and have to work together and any negative
comments will result in elimination of the fun time and students
have to go back to the classroom and get back to work. Other skills
students learn about during SPE are leadership, intrinsic motivation,
and inclusion of others. All of these contribute to a positive
classroom community.
Community Circle - Each morning as a class we will meet and talk
about events happening in the news and in our school. We will talk
about good news happening in each other lives. We will play teambuilding games some mornings or read picture books and determine
the theme of the story. This is a way to start our day off right.
Class Jobs
Throughout the year, jobs will change every two months. Students
will create resumes as well as fill out job applications for the jobs
they would like. When students have a role in the classroom they
tend to be more engaged. Also, students strive to be on their best
behavior so they can become the class president. They also are paid

every week for their job. The website we will use as a class is
www.mykidsbank.org.
Students will also understand our classroom rules through paying
rent for their desks. Also, if they need another pencil it is a price
they will have to pay for one. All of these items teach the students
responsibility, respect, and of course being safe.

Class President Student who follows directions


and is a good example to the rest of the class.
Ambassador Takes over if president is not there.
Also, welcomes new students to class and fills
them in on all the classroom rules and procedures.
Library Aides Takes books down to library, cleans
up classroom library daily.
Lunchroom Aides Cleans up table when finished
eating lunch.
Banking Specialist Every Friday they enter in
paychecks and additional money given out. Helps
other students with banking.
Attendance Helpers pass out tickets each day for
our attendance incentives.
Technology Specialist student will help substitute
work technology. Student turns on and off lights.
Custodian Every Friday takes garbages to the
door. Also, empties recycling bin.
Paper Passers Students that will pass out papers
at the end of the day.

Engaging Curriculum
In this day and age it is crucial that students are engaged in
learning with all the testing and push for college attendance.
Therefore, in our classroom it will be key to have students moving
around and analyzing their own work. There will be a lot of
integration of subjects to allow students of every kind to understand
the curriculum. Along these lines, students will be required to think
deeper and more critically about subjects and help teach other
students along the way.
Classroom Arrangement
Students will often be in groups of four or five students. This allows
for collaborative learning. It is important that students learn the

skills of working with others throughout the year. Therefore, being in


tables allows for this collaborative learning to happen. However, if
students cannot handle being in tables we will change their desks
into rows until they have learned when the right time to talk is.

Supportive Techniques

Circulating Classroom making sure students are on task

Divide side conversations stepping between


conversations students are having during instructional time

Proximity allowing the lesson to move more freely without


taking breaks to address misbehavior

Task breakdown letting students know how long on they


have to work on specific tasks

Body Language showing confidence and excitement

Praising Behavior Look for students on task and praise


with a lot of enthusiasm (1:3 Ratio for everyone one
misbehavior, praise three)

Routines - Staying consistent!

Intervention Techniques
One-on-One Conversations
Throughout the year, I will have individual meetings with my
students to get to know them better. However, if we have issues
that arise I will make sure to have one-on-one conversations with
my students. These conversations will let the student express freely
what is happening and in which ways we can fix the issues. Also,
these conversations show the student you care and want what is
best for the student.
Consequences

Contracts
Contracts will be created if a student has a continual behavior
problem. We will discuss many options for this child and positive and
negative consequences for him or her. This contract will also be

communicated with guardian at home (preferably at parent teacher


conference).

there arent 10 pencils in the buckets then the whole class will

Communication with Parents


Planners
Every student fills out his or her planners at the end of the day. They
take the planner home for their parent/guardian to sign. This allows
parents to know what homework needs to be completed and what is
happening in the classroom.
Newsletter
A monthly newsletter will be given out each month. This informs
parents/guardians of events coming up in the next month. It also
informs them of what is being taught and learned in the classroom.
Website
Our class website will have all the information we are currently
learning about. It will have links for games that children can play

that are educational. There will be a calendar with all the homework
assignments on it for students who lose or need an additional copy.
