For example, some of the behaviours displayed by the children are common behaviours such as: talking, inattention, interrupting, hitting, sleeping, being late as well as not following instructions during instructions.

The purpose of this study was to review the literature, identify strategies of a classroom management plan and implement the strategies into practice in order to improve classroom management. There were three action research cycles that drove this study. The research started by studying the effects of implementing a classroom management plan within a standard one class of fifteen children in a denominational school. If classroom management strategies were necessary to provide structure and improve learning, then it was important to identify the effective components of classroom management strategies as well as to effectively implement
