Classroom Management Plan

My classroom management plan contains four categories:  Expectations, Purpose for Learning, Organization, and Behavior Management.  I believe a successful year of teaching comes from maintaining a strong classroom managment system.  I spend the first three to four weeks of school modeling and practicing my expectations, routines, and procedures.  Under each category, I have identified elements that I plan on implementing in my classroom. 

EXPECTATIONS 

Miss Kattoula expects a respect for learning. 

Miss Kattoula’s class will have:

Respect, responsibility, rules, rewards, rapport,

Effort, encouragement,

Self-motivation, solutions, sociability,  safety, smiles,

Participation, positivity, politeness, privileges, praise, procedures,

Excitement, enthusiasm,

Cooperation, creativity, confidence, commitment to learning, consequences,

Tolerance and trust.
