Management Posters

Just thought I would quickly share a couple of little posters I have up in my room for classroom management.

I taught my class "give me 5" at the beginning of the year and this poster has been hanging on my whiteboard ever since as a reminder of what it really means when I say "give me 5". We review it often!

This is is a little poster I made with the lyrics to a quick song reviewing hallway behavior expectations. My kids love singing it just before we head out the door and it does seem to help them remember how to act in the hallway. I think they just secretly LOVE to listen to me mess up the lyrics...I can't seem to stop messing it up - my version always ends up with me belting out "eyes are closed...oh whoops!" and the kids erupting into laughter and pretending to walk with their eyes closed. : )  It is sung to the tune of "Pop Goes the Weasel". I found the song lyrics and idea somewhere online (I think it was ProTeacher?) and then just typed it up with a "cutesy" font and graphics!

Love the song. I call out "Body Check!" and the kids have been trained with the High five traits to be in a proper body check. I train them at first by praising/rewarding those in a body check first. Later in the year, simple praise does it.
