You Can Handle Them All
Before you can begin trying to change a child's behavior, you have to properly identify that behavior. The identification must be specific—for example, The Talker, The Cheater, or The Bully.

When I was in the classroom, this was my classroom management Bible. This site addresses the reasons behind behaviors and outlines the triggers and defusers for each type of behavior. At the beginning of the school year, I assessed my students behavior and created a behavior file for each of them. Learning about their behaviors helped me to be proactive and although it was time expensive for the first two weeks, I gained the time back because I spent less time with discipline issues and more time teaching.
