Classroom management is one of the most important roles played by teachers because it decides the success of teaching and learning. Students in classes where effective management techniques are used have higher achievement than those in classes where effective management techniques are not taken on. So, how to achieve effective classroom management? In this writing, I would to share some of my opinions about the ways to manage classroom effectively.
Firstly, it is necessary to make different rules in classroom. Rules must be created by both teacher and students, so that students can follow rules easily and correctly. When making rules, teacher have to use single words or simple phrases to help children easy to read and understand. It is not recognize to use complete sentences in creating classroom rules. Moreover, poster or table of rules should be decorated by colorful images or cards which are related to the rules. It is because children always like different colors.
Secondly, classroom management will be effective if teacher success in getting students’ attention. This is because getting attention of a large number of noisy students is always a challenge for the teacher. There are many ways to get students’ attention. Teacher can use both gestures and postures. For example, teacher can lap hands, wave hands or stomp feet to gain attention when students make noise. In addition, teacher should hold different funny activities. For instance, using short songs or chants as the signal of changing activities.

Learning environment is very important in classroom, especial in teaching language. To get positive learning environment in classroom, teacher and students are considered as the most important aspect. It is required to get both teacher and students’ attention. Students have to listen to the Teacher and the others in the class. Teacher has to create many activities for students to make them concentrate on the lesson. Activities must be funny, but educated and related to the lesson.
