Gone are the lazy days of summer. Days filled with trips to the pool, and evenings spent sitting on the back patio with friends. August is long gone and we have welcomed in September. Days are getting shorter. Weather has slowly begun to change. Life has started to speed up again. School is back in session. Often times this means new students, new relationships, and possibly a new classroom or school.
Unfortunately, this also means some of us may encounter new challenges in the classroom. Your challenge could be implementing a new curriculum. It may be that you are dealing with one of the hardest aspects of teaching, knowing how to effectively manage your students. Or perhaps, you are faced with accommodating students of diverse abilities.
We understand these challenges and know how much easier they may become if you have proper resources to support you. Here is our quick classroom management resource guide:
- TeacherVision: This website has hundreds of available resources. Be sure to check out their Classroom Management and Back-to-School Headquarters pages.
