    A Simple, Effective Behavior Management System

    A Simple, Effective Behavior Management System

    Classroom management is the backbone, the framework that supports everything else you do in your classroom. In fact, it's impossible to teach well if your classroom isn't running smoothly. If your students aren't meeting your behavior expectations, things are going to fall apart.
    In this week's episode, I talk about my simple behavior management system. Learn how I help K-3 students begin to take responsibility, track behavior patterns, and communicate with parents without a lot of fuss.

    106: How to Teach Classroom Systems and Routines

    Training your class in your systems and routines or procedures is one of the most important things you will do to set your class up for success all year. Why? Well, imagine your students are able to work independently and your classroom runs smoothly most of the time. That's why. If you train your students well and insist they follow the procedures every time (do it over the right way), it will pay off all year!

    What is the Science of Reading and is it Just Another Education Bandwagon

    I'm sure you've heard this term a few (hundred) times lately...the science of reading. But, what is the science of reading? And honestly, it is just another education bandwagon because we see that ALL the time.
    All those educational fads get a little exhausting, don't they? Well, in this episode, I break down the components of the science of reading and talk about why this isn't entirely new. If fact, you will probably recognize the parts and might even be already teaching most of them.
