I found these at Dollar General when they were on clearance and ended getting them for .30 cents a piece. I bought enough for each "pod" or grouping of desks so that students wouldn't have to constantly get up and throw trash away. At the end of the day our "neat and tidy" helper would empty the smaller trash cans into the big trashcans as part of their class job.
Classroom Finger Signals:
These are taught at the beginning of the year as we cover our Survival Guides (all the expectations and procedures for the year). Works wonders and eliminates all the blurt outs and constant questions.
I found the 4-S line on Pinterest last year. The Line expectations poster is a reminder of how we are to line up (which is covered in our Survival Guides). Super great reference to have for lining up. We don't exit the classroom until the expectations are being met.
It includes visuals for our emergent readers as I had K-4 this past year.
Class rules tied into PBIS.
Our school mascot is the Eagle so at our school we SOAR which is the acronym for our core values (show respect, outstanding conduct, achievement, and responsibility). Each of our classroom rules got plugged into which part of SOARing they reflected. When students are asked how they were SOARing during various activities, they knew which one of our rules they followed (or did not follow).
More posting coming soon. Trying to get back into the swing of making my presence known in blog land.
