Hello.

My question for anyone that has taught or currently teaching 2nd or 3rd grade, what list of classroom management issues have you dealt with on that grade level?

Here is my list:
1. Note passing
2. Tattling
3. Saying unkind things
4. Not following rules or procedures
5. Stealing
6. Touching each other harmfully or inappropriately
7. Sleeping in class
8. Disturbing others
9. Cheating

I donít deal with these every day or even with every class.

Thanks for sharing. I am in school getting my Masters in Elementary Education and my current class is focused on Classroom Management.

I just thought it would be good to get other teachers thoughts and opinions on the topic.

What are strategies you used to help correct those issue?

  • Here are a few I have seen at times:
  • Blurting
  • Can't keep hands off other kids
  • Playing like kittens in pouncing and wrestling
  • Calling others rude names
  • Refusal to do the work
  • Zoning out and not doing work
  • Doing something else than the work
  • Mean jokes to other kids
  • gossip/rumor mills
  • K*I*S*S*I*N*G type taunts to other kids
  • Lots of testing friendship. She/he is my friend not yours.
  • Disruption/distraction
  • Goofing off/trying to distract friends
  • Chit chatting when it is not okay to do so
  • Getting giddy and hyper when it would be nice to not have them giddy and hyper.
  • Throwing chairs, threatening others, trying to injure others, screaming tantrums, hitting hurting others, Threatening to kill them self, screaming accusations of things towards others including the teacher- with severe behavior issue kids.

You got that right TheGr8Catsby...that's what I've been experiencing the last couple years at my current school, and never seen anything as bad as this in many years of teaching.

Management? Or discipline?

If you're talking about classroom management (rather than discipline), for second graders, in my experience, the biggest thing you have to get a handle on is helping kids get organized (having and finding supplies, books, homework, notes, etc.) and following directions when they are given. Establishing and reinforcing good habits.

As far as strategies, I make everything into a "game". Pack your backpack game. Clean out your desk game. Pass in your homework game. Follow directions game. Check your folder game. Have teams or groups or rows and see which team can be first to be packed up for example. BTW, I make sure every group "wins". The last group to get packed up is the "fourth winner". Congratulate everyone. There are never any prizes, and the kids don't care. Just keep it positive and fun.

Same as catsby above-but I work in a suburban school surrounded by lovely new construction that I will never be able to afford. These issues are no longer a thing that just darkens the doorsteps of urban and low income schools.

I have a student that threatened to stab me this year and she has 2 parents, a stay at home mom who drives a Mercedes, and nothing but first world problems.

They:
threaten to shoot up the school, threaten to kill staff and students, throw chairs/staplers/anything not tied down, they punch and kick, they run out of the classroom and refuse to come back in after recess and then run around the campus like its all a fun game, they steal from teachers and other students, the profanity is serious, Their tear up their work and throw it at you to avoid having to do it, they even use inappropriate and suggestive humor-like "thats what she said" and songs about castrating people, they lie and make false accusations against teachers and other students.

The list has gotten so long
