The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between classroom management practices and communication skills with the academic achievement motivation of elementary school students in Chabaksar. The research method was descriptive-correlation. The statistical population of this study included teachers and male and female elementary school students in Chabaksar. 80 teachers and 200 students were selected using simple random sampling and cluster random sampling. Teachers answered the questions of the Communication Skills Questionnaire (Quindam, 2004) and teaching style (Gerash, 1996), and students answered the questions of the Academic Achievement Motivation Questionnaire (Walrand, 1992). Data analysis using stepwise regression method showed that the variables of classroom management practices and listening skills are the best predictors for the variable of academic achievement motivation, and there is a relationship between classroom management practices and communication skills with students' academic achievement motivation (P <0.01). As a result, teachers can benefit from effective classrooming styles and communication skills to increase motivation for academic achievement and prevent student burnout.
