Why do class management and effective teaching go hand in hand throughout every day of teaching?
They go hand in hand because you cannot be an effective teacher if you have bad classroom management. Children in classroom settings need structure and an everyday routine or else they do not know what do, and that effects their learning capabilities.
Why should your list of rules be short and positive?
Children do not have long attention spans. When making rules, if you keep the list short they will most likely be able to remember them and re-call them when asked. Also, if you concentrate on the positives, children will not be afraid in your class. I remember having a teacher and all her rules started with Do Not Do This... One of the worst classroom experiences ever, I was to afraid to do anything for being scared of being punished.

Fnd another class room management activity:
I know that at the summer camp I work with, when picking teams we have the kids play rock paper scissor shoot, then divide the winners from the losers then have them play again with winners vs winners and losers vs loser. Then we have them play again winners vs. winners of that round vs. losers vs. loser of that around until they are separated into four teams. This mixes the kids up so that they are not just with kids that they are friends with, or that are all on the same skill level. It is also more fun than having a counselor stand there and count them off by fours.
