Line-Up Strategies1. Ten Hut - After they are in the line (we line up on two parallel lines to leave), I say "Fall Out". They can then be messy on the line, i.e., step off, not be in line, chatty, etc. I then say "Ten Hut!!" and they are to "snap to attention" by quickly slapping their legs, straightening up, being directly behind the person in front of them, and getting totally quiet. When they do this without being "messy" I give bonus points. This begins as a "contest" and always ends up with both teams in a tie. I make a big deal to their teachers and sometimes we perform for teachers or parents in the hall.
Submitted by Leslie Lynk who teaches at Greenbriar West Elementary School in Fairfax, VA.
2. Colors - When it is time to leave the activity area ask first for the students who are wearing something red, then blue, then green, etc. to line up. o Ask students line up according to eye color. "Those who have hazel eyes can line up now", etc. o Ask students to line up according to hair color (i.e., brown, red, blonde, etc.)
Submitted by Mark Manross who is the Executive Editor of PE Central.
3. Alphabetically - After gathering students in front of you ask the students to line up alphabetically by last name (first name may work as well). This is a good cooperative activity so give them a little extra time to do this. Encourage them to use quiet voices while doing this. May want to time this to see how long it takes and see if they can beat their record the next time.
Submitted by Mark Manross who is the Executive Editor of PE Central.
8. Secret Student - At the beginning of the class, secretly pick one child in the class to be your "Secret Student" for the day. If this child moves appropriately in line, the whole line "wins". Since the class doesn't know who the secret student is, they are usually motivated to do their best. Recognizing the successful "Secret Student" encourages their positive participation even more. This works especially great when you let the classroom teacher know that the "Secret Student" was very successful, and that that whole class did wonderful. Note: if the "Secret Student" does poorly, it is best not to mention who that student was to the rest of the class. Just letting the class and classroom teacher know they weren't successful this day will make the students who didn't do well think about how they could have helped their classmates in a better way. You can always take this student aside a little later and discuss how their actions hurt themselves and their classmates. This is also a good activity by which to discuss cooperation with the students -- on both the part of the "Secret Student" and those classmates who may get upset and begin to blame a student who they they think was the unsuccessful "Secret Student".
These are fun strategies to spice up boring line routines.

rules.jpgUse this list as a starting point, adapting and expanding it to meet the needs of your class and grade level.
  • Treat others as you would like to be treated.
  • Respect other people and their property (e.g., no hitting, no stealing).
  • Laugh with anyone, but laugh at no one.
  • Be responsible for your own learning.
  • Come to class and hand in assignments on time.
  • Do not disturb people who are working.
As a teacher, you of course need to establish general rules of conduct for your classroom. But how do you make your students want to follow the rules? Give them a hand in creating those rules. Here's how to do it. Start with a list of what you consider the bare essentials, and then, through thoughtful discussion, work with your students to create a set of rules expressed in their language.

Must Do/May Do board for the classroom

This is a great example of what you can put on your board as to what you have to get done by the end of the day. If there is extra time there are also assignments the students could be doing in that time as well. It is a good way to stay on task and have a check list of what is going to happen during the day!

This is good to use in a younger grade level classroom so you don't have kids always asking what time, or how many more mins until a certain event is going to occur.

This is a really cool chart that you can use to show how the kids are behaving that day! When they misbehave they move down and have consequences that you can set up.

This elementary teacher, Karen McDavid, created her own website, independent of her school. In the section entitled “Classroom Management” she provides strategies to address rules, consequences, behavior, and establishing routines, all with a positive approach. Her section on routines is especially helpful.
