I have a total of 27 years teaching experience . After I received my M.Ed. from the University of Florida (hence the name "HappyEdugator"), I began teaching in elementary school, where I taught pull-out remedial classes for grades 2-5 and a section of K-1. Then I taught Pre-K for 5 years, before I went up to Middle School, where I have been in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. Last year, I went back to 1st grade in a private setting. I have traveled worldwide and am also fluent in Spanish.

Give Me Five Classroom Management Posters

(0)
Give Me Five! is a simple way for students to remember what to do when you want their attention. Teach this highly effective strategy at the beginning of the year when you go back to school. You get a set of four posters that are ready to use for " Give Me 5 " classroom management strategy. Print out the design you prefer, sizing to 8x8 or 12x12. I recommend using card stock and laminating for continuous use and durability. Display in the front of your room when you go back to school where it is highly visible and demonstrate what you want students to do when you say, "Give me Five!" Practice often during the year. My students also all respond with "Yes, Ma'am!" or "Yes, Sir!" and raise their hand. The posters remind students to do these five things: 1. Eyes on me. 2. Mouth is silent. 3. Ears are listening. 4. Hands are empty. 5. Body is still. Finally, they must Do it Fast! ©HappyEdugator.
