What’s Classroom Management
Classroom management refers to the wide variety of skills and techniques that a teacher uses to ensure a smooth-running classroom.
Classroom management for preschool begins with classroom procedures and routines. Did you know that research shows that most behavior problems results from lack of a classroom routine and procedures and that most behavior problems in the preschool classroom can be solved by teaching classroom procedures and routines. It’s never too late to get out your classroom procedures list and start teaching them and checking them off your classroom procedures list.
The idea is to standardize these moments into routines your children can do quickly and independently.
Start off by thinking about all the parts of your day and break it into predictable routines. Make a classroom procedures list that you can use to plan out teaching, teaching, oh and teaching them in your lesson plans. Here is a classroom procedures list that I use every year to help get you started.
You have your list now what?
When teaching procedures and routines in the classroom it is important to teach your children in a way that will compel them to perform them correctly and independently.
