Physical Classroom Organization

Student Organization
Basic Classroom Operations
I created my classroom with functionality in mind. I believe that a
functional work environment promotes a quality work and learning
environment. I wanted my classroom to be organized, roomy, and to promote
interaction between my students. I did this by creating distinct sections of the
room that have specific purposes. By organizing my classroom in this way, my
students will be able to organize their thoughts.
As the student enters the classroom, they will enter the coat closet and
Student Resource Center. I wanted the learning areas to be separate from the
students belongings, so that the students wont be distraction throughout the

Classroom Management Plan

Trappen 4

day. The Student Resource Center will serve

multiple purposes. First, it will be a check-in
area, where students will be responsible for
taking their own attendance for the day and
stating whether they will be having hot or cold
lunch. It will say What will your lunch be like
today? on a poster by the cups. Each student
will have a Popsicle stick that has their name on
it that they will place in cups that say HOT like
the Desert and COLD like the Arctic. Any
leftover Popsicle sticks will be students that are
counted as absent for the day. Second, it is
where students can pick up worksheets that
they will either need for the day or finished
assignments/homework that they will take home
that night. All of these papers will be placed in a
Daily Itinerary folder that will have their name
on it. Both of these things will eliminate time
spent on housekeeping throughout the day. In addition to this, it will be where
they hand in assignments, sharpen pencils, or do research on the computer.
The Student Bulletin Board will have information specifically for the students,
like a monthly calendar and a student task chart. The teachers desk is by the
Student Resource Center so that I can greet the students as they enter the
classroom, as well as for my own personal access to the Student Research

Classroom Functionality
I have the students desks in the center of the room. I have placed the
desks at a slant so that it is easier for everyone to see the board. This is
something I find especially important, because from personal experience, I
know how easy it is to zone out when your desk doesnt face the front. The
desks are placed in groups of four to encourage collaboration and make group
work easier. Each group of desks will be labeled as a continent- Africa, Asia,
North America, South America, Europe (my desk will be labeled Antarctica;
depending on the number of desk groups, any remaining continent may be
assigned to the community center).
I have made sure to make my reading center feels secluded from the rest
of the classroom. There will be a rug and pillows, as well as a sharing chair to
encourage a comfortable environment during read-aloud. There is a whiteboard

Classroom Management Plan

Trappen 5

next to the sharing chair because I have learned

that using drawings to teach new vocab words
can be effective. This will be great not only during
read aloud, but for when students are helping
each other with new vocab words as well. The
reading center will have a large book case full of
books of all genres and reading levels. These
books will be labeled and in bins. There will also
be a bulletin board that is reading themed, with
things like class reading goals, our favorite books,
or new vocabulary that we have learned.
I have the Community Center in the back
corner of the classroom. I call it the Community
Center because it not only promotes community
in the classroom through group work, but it also serves as a social studies
center and promotes community throughout the world. The Community Center
will have a large world map with examples of different cultures, climates, and
current weather. There will also be a table with a globe, and social studies
centers/activities placed underneath.
On the back wall of my classroom I have three large centers. I have
centers for science, math, and art. Each center will have a storage unit with
supplies and activities specifically for that subject. The centers will be
organized and easily accessible for students, because the students will know
that they are encouraged to work on centers when they have free time. The
centers are each placed in front of a window to help distinguish them further.
The windows also provide great natural light for the classroom, which will be
nice if we need a break from the harsh fluorescent lights. The back wall also
has additional teacher storage, as well as a sink that will be helpful for keeping
students hydrated, cleaning up art projects, and other miscellaneous tasks.

Classroom Operations
Student Records
My classroom will be systematic and organized. This will be possible
because of my system of consolidating student records and procedures.

Classroom Management Plan

Trappen 6

I will have one binder appropriately labeled and sectioned for each
content area and assignment, and designated for recording test and
assignment scores. The Whaley Grade Book will be used for recording these
scores (Wong & Wong, 2009). I will record all assignment scores in this binder
with the Whaley Grade Book, as well as on the computer to have multiple
sources of documentation. In addition to this, each student will have a small 3ring binder that contains exceptional or poor work, written observations from I
or other staff members, standardized test scores, personal information, etc.
This will be important for not only my reference, but important for substitutes,
aid teachers, or parents during conferences. In addition to this, I will keep
notes of student behavior and learning. I will do this by having sheets of name
stickers. When I make a note of a student, I will easily be able to transfer the
sticker to the students folders with their other information, as well as send a
copy home with students in their planner
at the end of the day. Additionally, I will
have a class chart documenting each
students Travelers Treasure at the end of
each day. This will be used to observe
behavior patterns and concerns.

Student Materials
I have a supply center located at the
center of the room with the student desks.
This supply center will include markers,
crayons, loose leaf paper, and other school
supplies for students who have either run
out of their own supplies, or dont have
the ability to buy their own. It will be
available to everyone so students do not feel embarrassed to use it. The supply
center will also have a straw dispenser for pencils. This will eliminate the
problem of students being picky when choosing a pencil. There will also be a
jar for pencils that need to be sharpened. Pencils will be sharpened and
restocked at the end of each day.
I have specific expectations for how my students will respectfully use the
supply center. These expectations will coincide with my expectations for all
other classroom procedures. The expectations are as follows: 1. Students must
return materials that they borrow from the supply center. 2. Students must
respect the materials that they borrow from the supply center. 3. Students

Classroom Management Plan

Trappen 7

must use the supply center at appropriate times (during transitions, after
asking permission, or when instructed to).

Student Responsibility
My students will be expected to be independent and responsible. I believe
that the best way to develop these skills is to give the students the opportunity
to mature and be independent. Students will be responsible for completing
beginning of the day tasks without being instructed, as well as classroom jobs
that will be rotated weekly. The classroom jobs that the students will be
responsible for are the following:

Line leader/door holder

Paper passer
Pencil Sharpener
Supply Manager
Teacher Helper

First Day of School
In my classroom, the first day of school will be structured and organized.
There will be specific activities for the students to complete that will prepare
them for the rest of the school year. These activities will be designed to build
classroom expectations and make the students feel at home in our classroom.
I will greet my students at the door on the first day of school to directly
give them their tasks to complete as they enter the room. I will give them a
short list of tasks to complete so that they are not overwhelmed and forgetting
the expectations that were asked of them.
I will ask them to do the following:

Enter the room and find their locker and drop off their things
Search the room to find a book of choice
Find the desk with their name on it, and sit to silently read the book they
have chosen

Once all of the students have entered the classroom and made it to their
seats, I will introduce myself to the class. From there, I will explain that before

Classroom Management Plan

Trappen 8

we begin our day we will be learning how to respectfully and properly enter the
classroom every morning.
The students will be responsible for completing the following tasks each

Enter the classroom quietly

Place their belongings in their locker and remove any homework or
papers to be handed in to the teacher
Stop at the Student Resource Center to:
o Return homework/papers for teacher (papers for teacher will be
placed separately in a clearly labeled basket)
o Place popsicle stick indicating HOT like the Desert, or COLD like
the Arctic lunch
o Pick up their Daily Discoveries folder
Read quietly in their desk while waiting for the day to start

Once I have explained the procedure and modeled it for the students, they
will be given the opportunity to practice it as a class. Students will then
simulate the beginning of the day procedures repetitively until the class as a
whole can complete it correctly.
After the completion of the beginning of the day procedures simulation,
students will be given time to place all of their belongings in their desks. I will
lay out the behavioral expectations before the students are released to do the
task. Each student will place their backpack on the back of their chair and
wait for directions. During this time, I will have each student remove one folder
from their backpack to be labeled with a sticker: Take Home Folder. I will
explain to the students that this folder is to be brought home each day with all
of the contents from the Take Home side of
their Daily Discoveries folder that they pick up
each morning. They will also have a label
labeled Discoveries in Progress for worksheets
that will be completed later in the week during
Leisure Time. After the students have labeled
the folders, they will be left alone to put away
their items. I will play music in the background
to make it fun for the students.
Next, students will get to know their teacher,
and I will get to know them. I will have a

Classroom Management Plan

Trappen 9

scrapbook labeled Miss Trappens Passport that I will show the students as a
read aloud. The passport will include pictures and explanations of my family,
pets, and favorite things. Students will also have the opportunity to ask me
questions about myself. Once the read aloud is complete, students will have
the opportunity to make passports of their own. Their passports will include
their picture, name, age, and facts about themselves. Students will share the
contents of their passports with their Continent groups. Once the passports are
complete, they will be displayed in the classroom or the hallway on a Passport
to Learning bulletin board.
Following the get-to-know-you activity, the class will comprise a list of
expectations that they would like to be implemented in the classroom. I will
refer to rules as expectations because I want the students to think of
themselves using positive behaviors. There will be 3-5 class expectations that
will be displayed in the classroom. Each student will
sign the expectations poster as a reminder
throughout the year that they have committed to
using positive behaviors.
The remainder of the day will be spent running
through the layout of the classroom, explaining
procedures, and helping students get acclimated to
the new school year. If time remains, students will
enjoy a read aloud, or participate in centers.

New Students
I want new students to feel welcome when they
enter my classroom for the first time. I will make sure
this happens by teaching my current students how to properly make someone
feel welcome. The class expectations that are established in the beginning of
the school year will create a warm and welcoming environment for all visitors
and new students. New students will immediately be incorporated into class
activities, and my students will be responsible for kindly giving the students
direction on classroom procedures and expectations throughout the day. They
will also be expected to include them in group work, conversations, and during
lunch and recess.

New students will also be incorporated into making the classroom home.
When new students arrive, they will create a passport just as the other

Classroom Management Plan

Trappen 10

students did at the beginning of the school year. Their passport will be
displayed along with the others on the Passport to Learning bulletin board.
On their first day, new students will go home with a Guide to Miss
Trappens Classroom manual for the student and their guardian(s) to review. It
will include information about myself, the classroom, classroom expectations,
as well as the student/guardian information form for to the guardian to fill out.
This will be the same form that my other students had their guardians fill out
at the beginning of the school year (see Parent Involvement for details).

Substitute Teachers
In order to make the transition into my classroom easier, I will provide a
Sub Tub for my substitute teachers. The Sub
Tub will include class lists, seating charts,
behavioral expectations and management,
daily procedures and schedules, a where to
find section, emergency contacts and
procedures, and the lessons for the day. The
Sub Tub will also include a list of students
that the substitute can feel comfortable asking
questions to if needed. The students will be
aware of behavioral expectations and
procedures for when there is a substitute

Daily Routines

On the first day of school, I will demonstrate and explain the various
transition procedures to my students. My transitions are designed to prevent
talking and distraction during what would normally be a time for students to
become off task.
During rotational group work, transitions from one group to the next will
be announced by a wind chime. At this time, students will quietly move from
their station to the next. When it is time to transition from content area to
content area, students will be alerted of the transition by the lights turning off.
When the lights turn off, the students will know to return to their seats (if they
are out of them) and clear their desk of materials. I will promote having clear

Classroom Management Plan

Trappen 11

desks at the beginning of each content lesson so

that students are focused on the material that
they will be learning or reviewing.

Leaving the Classroom

Regardless of the students reason to leave
the room, they will be encouraged to make it a
round trip, meaning that they go to their
destination and back quickly. I will have a limit
of having two students being out of the room at a
time. To monitor this, I will have two classroom
passes that will be used for every circumstance
(bathroom, office, water fountain, office, nurse).
The bathroom passes will be mini globes that can
be placed on their desk before they leave. The
globes will state Ive gone on an adventure, to signify that the student has left
the room.
I will also have students that leave the room for specials. I will keep track
of these students personally, so I can plan accordingly for lessons and group

Bathroom Breaks
I will have scheduled bathroom breaks throughout the day to minimize
students leaving the room during instruction. These bathroom breaks will be
scheduled around specials, lunch, and recess.

Assignments and Work Time

All assignments will be handed out in the students Daily Discoveries
folders that are restocked each morning. Any assignments that have not been
completed throughout the work time that day will be put in either the students
Take Home folder or Discoveries in Progress folder at discretion of the teacher.
Assignments that have been placed in the Take Home folder will be due the
next morning as the student enters the classroom. Assignments placed in the
Discoveries in Progress folders will be saved to work on when the student has
free time, or continued to be worked on as part of its lesson.
As stated earlier, all homework assignments will be turned in at the
beginning of the school day when students stop by the Student Resource

Classroom Management Plan

Trappen 12

Center. It will be the responsibility of the student to turn in assignments on

time and finished. If it becomes a problem that the student is not completing
their assignments, I will contact their guardian(s) to alert them of the issue,
and discuss with the student to develop a plan to turn their assignments in on
Students will be given ample work time to complete assignments in class.
If a student does not complete an assignment in the time given, it will be
placed in their Discoveries in Progress folder to work on later when they have
completed an assignment and have free work time. All remaining assignments
that are in the Discoveries in Progress folder on Thursdays will be placed in the
Take Home folder to be completed and returned on Friday mornings.
My students will be aware of the expectations I have for their actions
during work time. When an assignment is assigned, this will be the first task at
hand. If a student completes this assignment, they will be expected to complete
assignments that are in the Discoveries in Progress folder, beginning at the
back of the folder. When all of these assignments are completed, students will
be expected to read silently in their seats and wait for instruction. Students will
be aware of the expectation to work silently and on task during work time.

Discipline and Expectations

The best way to create a cooperative, respectful classroom environment is
to strongly enforce procedures and expectations. These procedures will be
demonstrated and practiced at the beginning of the school year to ensure that
the remainder of the school year will run more smoothly, and that students will
be aware of the consequences of poor decisions. Students will also create a list
of expectations at the beginning of the school year. Every student will be
expected to comply with the expectations that they set as a class.
I will be proactive and firm in my discipline. It will be my goal to nip any
behavioral issues in the bud at the beginning of the school year, so the main
focus in my classroom can be learning. This being said, it is important to me
that I am being adaptable to my students and discovering discipline procedures
that work with my class from year to year.

Travelers Treasures
Travelers Treasures will be my version of a three-strike system. Each
student will begin each day with three items that are essential to every

Classroom Management Plan

Trappen 13

successful traveler on their journeys. This will include a map, hikers

backpack, and binoculars. When a student is not being a successful traveler,
or misbehaving, they will be asked to give me one of their Travelers Treasures.
The Travelers Treasures will be laminated pictures that will be placed on the
side of their desk via magnets.
My goal is that with Travelers Treasures, students will not feel personally
attacked as they would with a chart advertising everyones behavior at the front
of the room. By having a three items policy rather than a strike policy, students
will feel less like the bad kid, and focus on bettering their behavior to be a
successful traveler the next day. This simple adjustment will take the
negative connotation out of discipline, and encourage positive behaviors.
When a student loses all of their Travelers Treasures, the student will
have a discussion with the teacher to develop a plan to improve their behavior
and steps to becoming a successful traveler. Guardians will be notified of the
students behavior, as well as the plan to improve their behavior.
I will keep track of each students number of Travelers Treasures at the
end of each day. Doing this, I will be looking for patterns in student behaviors,
as well as keeping documentation to present to guardians at conferences.

Preferred Activity Time

One of the ways that I will promote cooperation from my students is by
implementing Preferred Activity Time, or PAT (Mackenzie & Stanzione, 2010). It
is very important to me that I am not wasting my students time, and that they
are not wasting my time. By implementing a time incentive system, students
will be made aware of the importance of moving quickly and not wasting time,
working cooperatively, and being respectful. I will be consistent with my timing
so students can trust that I am being fair with the procedure. All PAT times will
be displayed on the front board so that students are aware of the advantage or
disadvantage they are facing. Students will be awarded 5 minutes of PAT at the
beginning of each week, and will have their PAT time every Friday. I am

Classroom Management Plan

Trappen 14

confident that this award system will encourage my students to stay on track,
be cooperative, and respectful.
Preferred Activity Time will be essential to creating attentive learners. For
students who struggle with lack of motivation and attention, PAT will act as an
incentive to complete assignments and stay attentive in class. For students
that do not respond well to PAT, I will search for other options to help keep
them motivated. I will also, however, continuing to include them in PAT to keep
them accountable. If lack of motivation continues to be an issue with the
student, their guardian(s) will be notified.

I will have no tolerance for cheating in my classroom. Any student that is
caught cheating will be given one warning. If the cheating continues, the
assessment will be taken from the student, and the student will have to
complete a different assessment during recess to prove that they know the
material. The student and I will have a discussion about how it is important to
measure our own knowledge during assessments, and how it is not fair to
ourselves or those around us to steal others ideas. Guardians will be notified
of the students infraction.

Extreme Infractions
In cases of extreme disobedience or violence, the student will be removed
from the classroom and sent to the principal. If there is an instance where my
class needs to be removed from the classroom to prevent them from getting
hurt or disoriented for the rest of the day, I will use the code words take a
vacation, that will signal the class to leave the classroom in an orderly fashion
and walk to the library or neighboring classroom. My coworkers will be aware
of this procedure. While the remainder of the class is out of the room, the
disobedient student will be calmed down by behavioral experts or myself and
removed from the room. There will be principal involvement when an extreme
infraction occurs. Parents will be immediate notified of the issue.

Parent Involvement
More than anything, I want the parent/guardian(s) of my students to be
aware of their successes and struggles in the classroom. As a teacher, I will be
present for a critical time period of growth and educational milestones for my
students- I want their guardians to feel like they have been a part of it. There

Classroom Management Plan

Trappen 15

are several ways that I will ensure that the guardians of my students are

Back to School Night

At the beginning of the school year I will encourage the guardians of my
students to attend Back to School Night. Here, I will introduce myself to the
guardians, give them a brief overview of the fun activities that we will be doing
throughout the year, as well as tell them my expectations in terms of classroom
environment. Hopefully, by telling them the expectations that I have for their
child upfront, they will not be defensive if they are contacted with news that
their student is not performing adequately.
At Back to School Night, guardians will also receive information about
the basic function of our Take Home folder. I will make sure that guardians are
aware that worksheets that are sent
home in the Take Home folder will be
due the next day, and that remaining
unfinished work for the week will be
sent home on Thursday nights. If this
is a problem for some families, I will
make sure to make accommodations.
Parents will also receive a form
to fill out and return on the first day
of school. This form will provide me
with information on their child that
will help me to teach them to the best of my abilities. It will also give guardians
the option to write their expectations for me for the school year ahead. The
form will include questions regarding the following information:

Guardian name(s)
Phone number(s)
Preferred method of
Do you have internet and
a computer at home?
Does the student have
siblings in the school?
How does the student get

Student name
Medications (or
Special interests or
involvement outside of

Classroom Management Plan

Trappen 16

Continuous Communication
Like I stated earlier, I want my students guardians to be aware of their
childrens progress in the classroom. At the end of each week, students will go
home with a personal note from me written in their weekly planners. This note
could include topics like reminders, updates on behaviors, improvements in
specific content areas, or things to consider practicing at home. It will be the
responsibility of the guardians to keep up to date with their students planner.
When behavioral issues arise, guardians will be contacted immediately or
by the end of the day. Behavioral issues are defined as: losing all three of their
Travelers Treasures that day, had a major issue at specials/lunch/recess, or
needed to be removed from the classroom to have a private conversation.
Guardians will be notified of the situation that happened and the plan that was
established to prevent the behavior in the future.
I will send out a monthly newsletter titled
Miss Trappens Travel Journal. This that will be
sent home electronically for those that would
prefer to receive it over email and in Take Home
folders for those that would prefer a paper copy. It
will include pictures and highlights of the month,
volunteer opportunities, as well as and things to
look forward to in the month ahead.
It is very important to me that the
guardians of my students trust my ability to

communicate. I will respond to all guardian

emails and phone calls before I go home each day.

In the Classroom
I will have scheduled opportunities for guardians to visit and volunteer in
my classroom. Volunteer opportunities will be listed in Miss Trappens Travel
Journal each month. Guardians may be asked to come in to help with major
art or science projects, holiday parties, field trips, or culture days, in which we
learn about the different cultures of our classmates.
Volunteer opportunities will be very structured in my classroom.
Guardians will be given specific tasks and direction, so I can make sure that
order and obedience is maintained in the classroom. This being said, I will

Classroom Management Plan

Trappen 17

always be open to ideas and suggestions before the day of volunteering, so

guardians feel that they are involved and active in planning the time that they
are in their students classroom.

It is at the responsibility of the guardian that their student arrives to
school on time. If excessive tardiness becomes an issue with a student, home
will be contacted. If the problem continues, the office will be contacted to
resolve the issue.

Teacher Expectations & Responsibilities

Professionalism & Ethics
As a teacher, it is essential that I hold myself to a high standard. This
includes looking and acting like a professional in my classroom. In addition to
this, I will maintain professional relationships between coworkers, guardians,
students, and I. Regardless of my personal opinions of anyone that I work with
as a teacher, it will always be my priority to provide a quality, unbiased
education for my students. All disagreements will be dealt with professionally,
and I will refrain from gossip. At the end of the day, the staff as a whole has the
same goal of creating successful learners- this will always be at the forefront of
my brain.
It is my responsibility to provide a safe and respectful environment for
my students- this is a duty I take very seriously. All students personal and
educational information will be kept confidential and not a topic of discussionespecially between I and other students guardians. I will make sure that my
classroom is welcoming and a comfortable place to learn.
I will be timely and appropriate when communicating with coworkers and
guardians. This is essential in forming trust between my coworkers or student
guardians, and I. I want to be considered reliable among those that I work

Displaying Student Work

I consider it my responsibility to foster creativity and pride in my
students. One of the best ways to do this is by displaying the work that they
are most proud of. As I stated earlier, I will be displaying each students
Passport that is created in the beginning of the year. These Passports will be

Classroom Management Plan

Trappen 18

displayed continuously throughout the year on the Passport to Learning

bulletin board as a reminder that they have committed to learning. I will also
use the hallway and classroom walls to display other projects throughout the
year to remind students to put effort into creating their best work.

I will make it my responsibility to ensure that there are no surprises at
conferences. I will do this by keeping consistent communication with my
students guardians regarding their progress and behavior.
Each student will have a small 3-ring binder that will hold examples of
exceptional and poor work to be displayed at conferences. This binder will also
include standardized test scores, documentation of the students behavior,
observations from staff members and myself, as
well as goals and plans for improvement.
Prior to conferences, students will fill out a
self-evaluation. Additionally, they will have a oneon-one meeting with me to discuss how they are
performing both academically and behaviorally in
my classroom. I will assess the students
performance to compare to their self-evaluation.
If given the option, I will include my
students in my conferences. Everything that
would be discussed with the students would be
discussed with the student before-hand. Not only
do I think its important for the students to be
active in creating goals and the plans to achieve
them, I think that young students are incredible honest with their strengths
and weaknesses. Having guardians see that their students and I are on the
same page concerning the areas that need improvement and that both the
student and I have an active plan, guardians will be less likely to blame their
students performance on the teacher. This being said, for more concerning
topics that need to be discussed further, I would have the student exit the
conference and speak one on one with the guardian(s).
