The Behavior Alert shows the rules that were broken, and the students, as well as their parents, need to sign this. This is a great way for the parents to track their children's behavior and the teachers can also alert the parents if there are issues.
First day class rules: I actually have this taped to the inside of my classroom door. After my students see these (and chuckle a little), my rules don't seem so bad.---like this idea :) start the year off with some tongue n cheek humor :)
Help Wanted bulletin board. Pockets with classroom job descriptions. Write student names on craft sticks and place them in appropriate pocket. Fun and easy way to switch up student jobs throughout the year.
