Hey everyone.. Hope your year has started off well... mine has started off with back surgery so I am out for 4 weeks but can't wait to get back to the classroom.. I was wondering if you could give me some ideas on how you use classroom management in kindergarten. I have been teaching for over 15 years and would like to try something new... The other teachers in my school are using the apple tree... every child has an apple with their name on it and if they break a rule, they remove their apple to basket 1, 2, or 3 and they get consequences as time out of play. I do not want to use this and wondered if any of you could give me a fresh and POSITIVE approach to classroom management.. The last few years I have strayed away from moving "apples" and more on classroom community/positive "discipline", but just wondering if you could give me fresh ideas so when I start in a couple of weeks, I can be ready to go...thanks in advance.
