Find Your Classroom "Hot Spots"
We all have certain locations in our classroom where students are a little more active than others. These are the "hot spots" of the classroom where students can become distracted and/or off task. When transitioning into an activity or practice, predict which areas of your class are likely to flare up and check in with those students first. Prevention is the best medicine. Predict and plan for those "hot spots" and the lesson will be much easier to manage.
