Classroom Management for After The Break

Hey y'all. The countdown to vacation is on! As we're getting ready to head out for winter break, it's time to start prepping things for when we get back.

Each January, we review our classroom behavior expectations so we can start off the second semester right, and with the whole class on the same page.


We use this little book to write out and illustrate what the proper behavior looks like, feels like, and sounds like in our classroom. 


We can review these expectations at any time and each students' book stays in the classroom…just in case we need reminders.


We go over expectations for each of the situations we find ourselves in during the school day. There's even a blank page at the end of the book for any special situations specific to a particular school.


I've used this little booklet with kids from kindergarten to third grade and they've all enjoyed showing what they know by filling in the expectations in their own words. The kids are amazingly thorough, too! You can pick up your own copy of this little tool here.

How do you review behavior expectations in your classroom? If you have any exciting rituals, let me know in the comments below. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderfully smooth start to the spring semester.

Stay sweet,
