    Have any of you read Dream Class by Michael Linsin? It is a wonderful book about creating your own "dream class."

    He also has a website with great articles:

    I've read the book. It's on my kindle app just in case I need a quick tip, lol.
    I am modeling my behavior plan after it, and it's going great. The amazing thing is, my students who I was warned about before the year started are doing just fine!
    The kinder teacher asks, "How's SoandSo doing?"
    And I get to smile and say, "He's doing great!"

    It's not like its anything new. Just helps remind you of what you already know. It was a quick read.

    I read it, and am using the ideas this year. I don't know if it is this group of kids, or the reminder about good management techniques, but this year has been VERY good so far!

    I am using his rules and consequences system, with a couple of added things of my own (like a simple incentive system for the whole class and my Thank You and Compliment Cards.)
