Acrostics Make Classroom Management A Snap!

If you want your students to remember something you'll have better luck if you keep it simple, relate it to something memorable, and/or go over it multiple times (repetition). We love the idea of using acrostics to sum up 'the important stuff' - i.e. expectations, rules, procedures, etc! We think it's something students really respond to and it also provides a great way to implement the above suggestions - everything is simplified, fits together to create a memorable word, and can be easily viewed/gone over together in a short amount of time should your kiddos need a brush up!

We can't take credit for coming up with these, but we think they make excellent classroom management tools!

And, while these aren't acrostics, we figured we'd throw them in because they are similar (and effective!) tools for managing instruction time/transitions and forming lines...
