Notice to Students (Big Text) - NEW School Classroom Student Motivational POSTER
If I could figure out a way to create something similar for Hall Rules, except in Spanish, then this would be applicable to my class. A good way to manage student behavior in the hallway when they are a part of your class at the moment.
Behavior is one of the biggest classroom management problems teachers face and another is communicating to parents. Solve those issues by using these ideas, checklists, and forms to help keep track of discipline and work ethics.
