Specific strategy: Relationship Building
Relationships are the foundation of any classroom and are essential in any area of classroom management.

Specific strategy: Visuals
Visuals enhance basic classroom management by clarifying expectations. There are a variety of different types of visuals for student/school use: first/then, visual schedule, activity schedules, visual prompts, etc.

Specific strategy: Check in Check out (CICO)
CICO is used to set a positive tone for the student and provide for follow up conversation. CICO enhances student accountability for behaviors.

Specific strategy: Reflection Sheets
Reflection Sheets (or think sheets) are very effective tools when it comes to students who display inappropriate behaviors and are often used in conjunction with school and class rules. These students can be used in two different ways- to help correct undesired behaviors or to reinforce appropriate behaviors when exhibited.

Specific strategy: 5 Point Scale
A 5-Point Scale is a visual/written scale that can be used to teach social and emotional concepts to students who have difficulty learning such concepts.

Specific strategy: Social Stories
Social stories are social learning tools that help support children of all ages. They are designed to help them understand how to appropriately and effectively work through a challenging event, whether it be accepting change, toilet training, managing anger, life skills, etc.

Specific strategy: Break Cards
Break cards are used by the student to ask for a moment away from either the classroom or an activity when they feel themselves getting upset or frustrated. They show the card to the teacher and the teacher offers a space in the classroom for the student to take a break. The cards can also be used outside of the classroom; both settings should have a set time frame for the student to be away and then return to the classroom or activity.

Specific strategy: Consequence Maps
Consequence maps are used to visually illustrate the consequences for desired and undesired behaviors. These maps can be used to anticipate reoccurring behavior. For example, if the student usually has difficulty during circle time, pull out the chart and point to the desirable behavior and the consequence that follows, and the undesirable behavior and the consequence.

Specific strategy: Daily Progress Report/Daily Point Sheets
A point sheet broken down by desired behaviors by subject/class area. Teacher circles yes or no based on tallies given during each lesson. The student must earn so many points per day to earn rewards.

Specific strategy: Interest/Reinforcer Inventory
An interest or reinforcer inventory is a way of looking at different items that might be reinforcing to a student. They can be beneficial when it comes to identifying what a student will work for.
