Oftentimes, students will misbehave when they are not engaged or not motivated. By using positive reinforcements, you can redirect students' misbehavior. Try praising positive behavior, teaching politeness, offering rewards, and encouraging your students. Another way to improve student behavior is restructuring the way you teach. Do this by rearranging your classroom, giving hands-on assignments, showing a daily agenda, and giving students breaks.
You surely want to correct disruptive behavior; however, when a student does something the right way, give attention to these moments. Encouraging positive behavior shows other students a positive example and lessens the attention given to misbehaving.
Try classroom reward systems like offering bonus points or using a prize bucket to encourage students to better their achievements and actions. A student who is usually disruptive will start to interrupt less if they are motivated by doing well with their assignments or following the rules.
Believing in your students and showing you care helps redirect misbehavior into positive actions. It will also help boost their self-esteem, and they will start believing in their own abilities more.
Students can act disruptive when their attention is fading or if they are not engaged. Giving short breaks throughout your lesson will help break up the work and keep students attentive. Breaks can be simple, like stopping to do ten jumping jacks or taking a walk through the hallway.
Most classes will always have a few students who always raise their hands first. However, you want to call on all students as equally as you can. Try the "pick a stick" behavioral strategy to help ensure all students are called on and feelings aren't hurt.
Think about at least three rules before the school year starts. Give students the opportunity to add in two more rules. If a student has a voice in establishing expectations, they are more likely to follow the rules.
Gradually increase your students' responsibilities by assigning small tasks, such as erasing the board or collecting homework. This will help them feel a greater sense of accountability. Identify your most irresponsible students and give them small tasks that will boost their accountability.
Model the behavior you want your students to mimic by saying polite things and acting kind. Focus on encouraging “please and thank you,” “hello and goodbye,” and “excuse me.” Reinforcing proper manners will inspire more acts of politeness and change the tone of your classroom.
This will create a positive learning environment. Place your teaching spot at the front of the room and arrange the students’ desks in a circle around this spot. You will be able to see all students, easily move around your classroom, and minimize distractions. Each student will easily see the front of the room.
Surprises can throw off a student, make them anxious, and cause them to misbehave. A simple solution is to write a daily agenda on your board, detailing what you will cover that day. If your students feel prepared for the day, they will feel less anxiety and behave better.
Hands-on assignments include activities like building models, doing science experiments, or acting out scenarios. This will minimize students’ potential to get bored and cause disruptions. Incorporating an active learning style will keep all students engaged and can also be a fun way to learn.
If you act frustrated or angry, this will rub off on your students and they will likely respond similarly. Take a second to compose yourself if you need it, but make sure you speak kindly to set the tone.
Giving your student the opportunity to speak will make them feel validated and understood. Let them explain why what they did was wrong, and encourage them to come up with a solution.
Reassure them by saying something like, "Hey Kayla, I like you, I just don't like when you call out and answer before I call on you". This will affirm to them that there isn't anything wrong with them, just the action, and this will make them less likely to do it next time. 
Sometimes you have to speak more in depth about an issue with a student,. When this happens, have the conversation in private. In your office or after class can be good times for this. Describe the misbehavior specifically and outline the consequences of the action.
