Step Towards How to Run a Successful Classroom

February 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 155

Now let's take a step towards how to run a successful classroom environment.

Classroom Management

One of your biggest concerns as a daycare teacher is going to be classroom management!

No matter how much experience you have as a mom handling your own children, it's something else entirely when you're responsible for a room full of children.

They all come from different backgrounds and have different personalities. Don't worry -- all you need to do is learn the basics of classroom management and you'll likely find that it is easier than you were expecting to manage your classroom.

A huge part of classroom management is organization. If your classroom is not well-organized and well-run, it will show in the behavior of the students.

This is especially true since you will have such young children in your classroom. If you are taking too long to move on to the next lesson or to switch gears when something clearly isn't working, then the situation will quickly turn to chaos.

Planning and Organization is Key

You'll find that you are a lot less stressed out when you are planned and organized. Your students will have a sense of structure that works amazingly well to calm any problems that might pop up otherwise.

Of course, much of the organization you have in your classroom will be dependent on the curriculum you have chosen.

Some of it will be more heavily planned and maintained by you, and other plans will be more attuned to the children since they are student-led. No matter how "structured" your lessons are, you are doing yourself a great service in managing so many children when it is all very well organized.

Setting up routines is going to be the key!

The children should know what to expect each time they walk in the door. Routines are very important at this age!

This is something that usually isn't incorporated into your daily lesson plans; rather it is just what you do each day.

Consider these:

1. Signals or signs you will use to get the class to quiet down and listen to direction

2. How students will come in each day

3. What they are supposed to do until all of the students arrive

4. Will you have snack time?

5. How will you assign "jobs" for students to do in the classroom (this gives them a sense of ownership and pride!)

6. How you will have everyone help put materials/toys/books away

This is not an exhaustive list, but these are all things you will need to think about. Children thrive when they have a routine and know what is expected of them each day.

You can definitely help them to learn and grow when you have things like this in place. It will also make it much easier for you to manage the classroom in general since these routines tend to make things run more smoothly day in and day out.

We can now get to the most exciting part of all!
