MOMMARUTHIE...I need help!!
I just read your post regarding the management system and I noticed you teach a 4/5th grade class. I was just hired at a private school teaching 9 kids (7 fourth graders and 2 fifth graders). I would love to hear your ideas on how to manage this and what works. This will be my first year teaching and I'm a bit overwhelmed. Thanks, Angelbug
MOMMARUTHIE...I need help
I'm very new to this website and not sure where to reply. I just read this thread and noticed you also teach 4/5 grade combination class. I was just hired at a private school teaching 7 fourth graders and 2 fifth graders. I would love to hear your ideas on what works. This will be my first year teaching and I'm a little scared.

The Poems Sound fantastic
I would also like a copy of the discipline poems. I have been assigned a 4/5 combo for the year and haven't taught in the upper grades for 8 years. I am kind of freaking out, and these poems sound great.

I'm a new teacher in MN. I would love those poems as well. Thanks to everyone who gave helpful websites and posted their reward system! I am excited to give some a try!
I attempted to Private message the poems to you. However, it would not go through. If you could private message me you e-mail address I will send the poems to you as a word file.
I have a behavior flip card system like some of the other teachers have mentioned, it works well.
I also have a "good choices" jar. I have 2 identical jars one is filled with the candy, the other is empty. The object is for them to get the candy from the one jar into the "good choices" jar by making just that, good choices. Every time I see someone working quietly, or they lined up quitely, I ask them to put a piece of candy in the good choices jar.
Once the jar is filled, I count all the pieces and divide it up among the students.
I also have a "store" that I open up about 2-3 a year. The students earn points mainly for turning homework in on time. Each assignment is one point. Sometimes I give extra points for behavior.
I usually buy things from the dollar store, Big Lots or from Target (dollar section). I have alos bought things from Oriental Trading. Once I am ready to open up my "store", I total the students points up. Whomever has the highest points, that is what I base the "bigger" store items on. Everyone gets to buy one item, and sometimes I ask them to come back to purchase another item.
The kids love it! Plus those who do not have alot points, see what they are missing out on, and strive to better the next time around.:lol:
I too, am interested in those poems! Pass them on please!
I hope that you enjoy the poems. I liked your jar ideas. The point system is really good also. I have seen it used in my dauaghters classes before.
here is the link to the poems:

Interested in poems
I am also teaching fourth grade this year and I would be interested in reviewing your poems. I've taught kindergarten and first grade in years past and found songs and poems helpful in developing routines. I am excited about teaching fourth grade and will welcome any suggestions. I will try to email you.
Check out me entry (lots of details) on the forum HERE. It gives a run down on the initial steps to set up a Power Teaching classroom. This management style is incredibly effective at any level.
You can also check out the videos here to see some of this in action.
