As you are walking through the hallway at school, do you ever see the group of students that is goofing off, being entirely too loud, and is either stretched out the length of a football field or is so bunched up they are literally pushing one another? Maybe that group of students belongs to you?
It’s ok. We’ve ALL been there. In fact, I STILL have nightmares about unruly students running through the hallway interrupting every class along the way and angry colleagues expressing their disapproval – lol!
As a teacher, one of the biggest challenges you may face is managing quiet students in the hallway.
While some students may be naturally chatty and disruptive, others prefer to keep to themselves and walk quietly.
However, even these quiet students can disrupt the orderly flow of the hallway if they don’t have a strategy in place.
Hallway Ideas for Quiet Student Lines
One of the best strategies for quiet students is to line up with their classmates before leaving the classroom. This helps to keep everyone organized and ensures that no one is left behind.
Additionally, it gives students a chance to share ideas and activities with each other before they walk out into the hallway.
Another great strategy for quiet students is to walk quietly and avoid disrupting other classes. This can be achieved by using tricks and hacks such as walking on tiptoes or taking smaller steps.
By keeping their movements small and controlled, quiet students can avoid drawing attention to themselves and disrupting other classes.
Keeping quiet in the hallway can be a genius classroom management strategy for teachers. It helps to create an orderly environment where everyone can focus on their work without distractions.
However, it’s important to remember that not all students are naturally quiet, so it’s important to provide them with strategies and support to help them succeed.
If you’re struggling with chatty or disruptive students in the hallway, consider implementing some of these strategies for your quiet students.
By providing them with the tools they need to succeed, you can create a more peaceful and productive learning environment for everyone involved.
