Today I’m going to talk about one of my most favorite classroom management strategies: Using table groups as a classroom management strategy I will also explain how we use them to earn points.
How it works is each group earns points throughout the week. They earn points for many things like leaving desks neat and tidy, working quietly, working hard, being bucket fillers, remembering to put up chairs, and lots more! I love this class management technique because it’s simple and encouraged team work. The kids really work hard together and encourage each other to work hard and do their best!
At the end of the week, the team with the most points earn the team trophy on their desk for the whole next week and those students get to pick a coupon from the coupon box. I also love to award the whole class when every group earns 40 points for the week. It works and it’s super easy to run!
I’ve included the signs as a FREEBIE for all interest to print, laminate and try out! This freebie includes 4 full size signs to hang over tables in the 4 primary colors. I’ve also included the 1 page sheet that has all four mini signs on it, which is great to use on your board to keep track of points.
