Behavior Management Strategies - Whole Class Behavior Systems

{Empowering students to take responsibility for their behavioral choices and fostering independence in the classroom are two effective management techniques that help reduce behavioral interruptions and maximize your instruction/small group time!

While clear, concise expectations and consistent classroom procedures are important to reaching these goals, many educators also employ a behavior management system.

Here's a look at several common behavior management systems...}

Another alternative to individual and small group behavior management systems is a whole class system. Not only do these systems encourage students to take responsibility for their own behavior, but they also promote teamwork and invite your students to work together toward a common goal.

Check out how these educators instituted a whole class behavior management system...

While this idea from Rebby over at Classroom Compulsion was originally designed as an end-of-the-year countdown, it would make a great behavior management system. Students work together to reach various goals and are rewarded with a chance to pop a balloon (with a special prize inside) when they are successful!

Amanda of The Teaching Thief uses classroom BINGO for whole class positive behavior reinforcement. Working together, Amanda and her students set behavior goals/routines that they want to work on and, observed each day, if her students reach and/or exceed their behavioral goals they get to draw a number from the BINGO bag and cover the corresponding number on the BINGO board. When they get BINGO, students receive a reward!

Bethany over at 2nd Grade Rocks introduced the beloved children's toy, Mr. Potato Head, into her classroom as an incentive for positive behavior. Each time her students reach their behavioral goals, they get to add a piece to the potato head. When the toy is fully put together, Bethany rewards her kiddos with a fun surprise!

This puzzle idea comes from Pinterest. {If you know the original creator/source of the idea, we'd love to know so we can give proper credit!} The gist of the system - students earn puzzle pieces for positive behavioral choices and, when the picture is completed, earn a special treat!

While the methods may be diverse, they have similar goals and can be a fun way to promote teamwork and positive behavior in the classroom!
