I have a couple thoughts to share. One of the first things I use for classroom management is "E Money". (E for Eiken, my last name) In the first few days of the school year I go over how the students can earn E money (2 pencils sharpened every morning, homework complete daily, raise hand no calling out,....) After I have gone over a few things, we have a class meeting and the kiddies come up with a list of things they think they should earn (and or lose) money for in my classroom. They each get a money pouch (5x7 white envelope) that they color and I laminate. They also have a "bank statement" sheet that they keep track on their money on. I have a big chart that I keep track of money weekly..."payday" is Friday. Then, once a month we have a classroom auction. The kids love this because it really teaches them to plan and use their money wisely.
Another item I use, I found at a professional development training a few years ago!! It's a music wand!! (Of course, I call it my princess wand:) )
The last thing I want to share is this...not sure if it falls under the classroom management category but I swear by it.....I have several CD's downloaded on my computer that are just calm, soothing music. Some with water or chimes in the background, lots of classical. Before my door opens for the kids every morning, that is playing softly. I truly feel like it sets the tone for a peaceful morning and start to our day:) The kids know to come in quietly and get busy on their morning work. They even get to the point that if they are writing they ask for the music. They call it their "thinking music". Too cute:D
Hope you're able to get some ideas from here:)
