Pumpkin Pie Oh My!!!! Classrroom Management Freebie

How is classroom management going in your classroom? I decided to change things up for the month of November. My class is working really hard to earn a pumpkin pie party.  They have to earn 8 pumpkin pie slices by the end of the month to get their pumpkin pie.  Every year, I make little pumpkin pies with the students. Not really pumpkin pies but ones the students can easily make on their own that look similar to pumpkin pies.  So I thought this year why not have them earn it. Don't tell them they will for sure get to do it. But it's fun for them to think they have to work to get it.  I do take the slices off if they're being noisy or not following directions. You could easily put them on a pizza pie pan and make it look like the real thing. I was going to do that but ran out of time. I also wanted to add the magnets to the back of the slices but my life is too busy so you get the ugly rendition. 
If you would like your own copy of the slices and the recipe click on the image below. If you do download it, please leave me a comment.

Classroom Management

                                                 I'm linking up with What a Teacher Wants
I found this great idea 
off of spend a day in second grade. I made her darling blurt chart. I hope this helps with those students who are always shouting out. It's a great chart to go with the book My Mouth is a Volcano. I have this book and I love it for students who shout out.

This is my tried and true behavior management system. Every year I start my behavior management with this clip chart. Of course I change it out every month for different things but I always start my year with this thing. The kids love it because they love watching their name move up. If I move one name it seems like all of them quiet down and try to get me to move their name as well. At the end of the day they each have a punch card. I give them one punch if they stay on ready to learn. If they move up they get more punches. Once their whole punch card is filled they get to choose a prize out of the prize box. I will be posting more behavior management ideas as the year goes on.  
Of course mine is all bees because my classroom is centered around  bees. Each saying is a bee theme. So they start on gathering honey. Then they can move up to be good, be better, be best, the hive is the top. As they go down the sayings say ouch, buzzz, the stinger, and stung.  I didn't  put  my system on a wall. I like to be able to move it, because we move around the room so it's portable. I can carry it to my back table. Or over to the rug. That way my kids can see it at all times. I put it on foam board so it's more sturdy too.
