Scholastic’s Classroom Management Methods is a forum for experienced teachers to share insights into managing productive and engaging classes. Resources can be found by grade level: PreK-K, 1-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12 and filtered: class rules, workshops, setup and organization, learning centers, behavior problems, activities, unit and lessons plans, and tips. The website can be keyword searched as well. Resources can be shared and emailed.

Under Class Rules, Everyday Rules That Really Work! (K-8) outlines a six-point plan for establishing rules and routines.

Under Classroom Management Methods, Organizing Small Groups: Do You Know All the Options? (PreK-12) describes eight classroom grouping techniques and suggests the best times to use them.

Under Behavior Problems, 30 Classroom Procedures to Head Off Behavior Problems suggests general procedures to teach students that can be adapted to grade level and school setting. A blog post, Helping Behaviorally Challenged Students (1-2) describes 10 things to help students correct their behaviors.

Under Activities, an article and a blog post describe ways to start the day and end the day. 15 Ways to Start the School Day (PreK-8) suggest playing Mozart as students arrive, running in place for 12 minutes, and reading aloud. End of the Day Routine (3-5) describes and provides a video (5:00) of a Friday end of school. The post ends by recommending a book with more tips to energize a classroom.
