some paper chains hanging from a ceiling with words on them that say, caught ya'being good chain
Insanely EASY Classroom management strategy. I teach 3 Block classes, and each class is assigned a color, at the beginning of the year. So, I use their color to make the chain. I reward the class randomly, but regularly. They don’t know what they may get a chain for on a given day, but I give at least two opportunities. I do this over a two week period and the class with the longest chain gets a reward, like outside lunch. It definitely is motivating and it works!!

a bulletin board with sticky notes attached to it's sides and writing on the back
One of my favorite things is decorating a classroom! Maybe because we spend 8+ hours a day there. Sneak peak from my sisters room that we set up last week. She displays her expectations for the first few minutes of class along with her objective, agenda, etc. Link in IG profile. #BestClassroomEver
