As your students are likely nearing the end of the honeymoon period, or have already exited it, you might be feeling the frustration of maintaining your classroom management. Don’t fret, and don’t give up. The longer you enforce your procedures and expectations, the more ingrained they will become into your student’s brains. Continue your good work of enforcement now and it will pay you back in the long run with an easier time enforcing procedures and expectations down the road.
Make sure your students know who you are AND what to expect during the school year. Make your expectations and procedures clear. Include these in your syllabus as well so your parents and administrators are kept in on the loop. If you need tips view the power points included in the Classroom management plans tip sheet.
