My product is to help with behavior management. This can be an area that can be very stressful if it isn't handled well. I am not an expert by any means, but I have had some success with difficult situations and many times students are "earmarked" for my class.
Once, a boy was told by his brother that he needed to be in my class because "Mrs. Sequeira gets us!"
The funny thing about it is, he was correct. I did get them. Even though they had very different needs, I was able to help them to have a successful year.
This was not always the case, and I had a lot of lessons to learn along the way. Parenting helped and I used many strategies from home in my classroom. Watching and learning from master teachers also helped.
I discovered that if I spent the first few weeks focusing on self-esteem and how valuable each of us is, that set the tone for the rest of the year. I also found that focusing on the positive instead of the negative and beginning each day as a fresh start worked well.
Some of the rules were modified a bit to better fit my class. Rule 1 has the words "and correctly" added. Rule 3 is completely different because I don't require hands raised to leave seats. I have included the original versions as well.
The full version is available in my TPT store.
If you are interested in learning more about it, I would highly recommend it.
