HELP!!!! (Thnaks all!) >>
I have found that the most effective method of classroom management is
consistency. Whatever the rules are at the beginning of the year, and
whatever the punishments..stick to them. Do not waiver or give in or they
have you. Punish without giving a million chances, and do it matter of
factly, not giving it much attention. I would just give the punishment and go
on k=like it was just another normal act of the day. Try to never let your
anger show, and your discipline techniques will be much more effective.

Also, providing art lessons that are fun and interesting to them will do the
trick as well. If they enjoy your class and respect and like you..then you
have it made! Work hard to find new and exciting projects that they enjoy.
Involve them in decision making too! If they plan the lesson, they will
certainly enjoy it!

I certainly do not want my comments to sound like I think classroom management
is easy! It is the most difficult thing to do! But these are some general
suggestions that will work to some degree in ANY setting. If the kids know
you care about them, they always respond better to you! Hope this helps!
