I have attached a sample letter that I could send home to parents on the first day of school. It welcomes them to the classroom, introduce me and gives them a feel for what the year will look like for them and their students.
I have attached my classroom management plan to this post. It includes my plans for the first three days of school, classroom procedures, rules and my ideal set up for a classroom.
It is important to have a classroom management plan written out to refer back to when teaching. I chose 4 rules that I find to be most important in a classroom. They are positive, easy to understand and broadly applicable. I also have a diagram of my ideal future classroom. I included use of flexible seating, I believe this helps a diverse group of learners stay focused more easily.
