A LITTLE BIT OF BACKGROUND INFORMATION
A TRIVIA GAME 4 of these items are TRUE and 1 is FALSE. I am addicted to Food Network. One of my many greats – grandfather was a merchant from the coast of France who was captured by pirates and escaped when they ship-wrecked near one of the many barrier islands along the coast of Louisiana. I love to learn and am currently taking culinary classes. I love cooking. I panic if I turn on my computers in the morning and the network is not operating.

CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT TIPS TRAIN YOUR STUDENTS! –They must know the rules and know when it is acceptable and appropriate to be working on the computers. Find an organization system that works for you. Arrange your computers so that you can see all screens, at all times. Label your computers – number, center, activity. Adding FEATHERS to your labels can be very helpful.
CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT: CHARTS POCKET CHART –Number pockets so that they can be used year after year. –Use index cards with READY printed on one end and DONE printed on the other. CENTER CHART –Keeps students organized in groups -- very visual. –Easy to change groups. –Shows rotation order. –Is helpful for substitutes. T – CHART –Use clothespins (labeled with names or numbers) to manipulate from one side to the other. –example: ready/done
CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT: FOLDERS DIGITAL FOLDERS –Create a folder for the students to save their projects in. MANILA or POCKET FOLDERS –Make a folder to turn in hardcopies of all projects. –Have a folder to hold copies of checklists, based on rubrics, easily accessible – dont make your grading criteria a secret. –Keep a folder of related extension activities for those students who finish early.
MORE TIPS Make sure students know that you are grading their content first, they can add all the bells and whistles after the main content is included in the project. Give their brains a break. If it is a new activity, give a whole-group demonstration. Typed instruction may also be given. Grouping – follow what works best for you.
