    Hallway

Explain Purpose:

Our hallways need to be quiet and orderly so we don‟t disturb other

    classrooms that are learning (Empathize with Others) and so we can all

    stay safe (Stay in Control).

Specify Behaviors:

    ? Be aware of others

    ? Respect school decorations

    ? Walk on the right QUIETLY

    ? Observe personal space

    ? Go directly to where you should be going

Practice:

Notes: It is important to stay facing forward and to the right, quietly, as you are walking

    in the hall. If you don‟t you could trip and fall and cause others to fall too. You also

    would not know when the rest of the line is moving and you might not be able to follow

    the rest of your class.

When walking in the hall it is important to be quiet. If you are too loud in the hall, you

    disrupt other students in classrooms as you walk by.

Practice having the class line up to go out into the hall. Practice how they

    will line up and what a straight line should look like.

Role-play having the class practice walking down the hallway and staying

    to the right on their way to lunch, art, music, gym, recess, library, office,

    etc. What does it look like? What does it sound like? What should they

    have with them?

Monitor:

Throughout the week/year, notice what is going right and make specific

    comments: “Today I noticed we all walked quietly to the right.”

Notes: Make sure you vary your line position. (front, middle, end)

Review:

Give the students feedback and make sure all students are

    recognized/rewarded.

Solicit student feedback. (How do you think we did today on keeping in

    line?)

Explain Purpose: Arrival and Dismissal

    We need to arrive and leave school in an orderly manner so we can keep

    ourselves, and our friends safe. (Cooperate with Everyone) We also need

    to make sure we are prepared for our day at school and our evening at

    home (Remain Responsible).

Specify Behaviors:

    ? Enter and exit assigned door

    ? Observe personal space

    ? Keep materials with you

    ? Leave the building when dismissed

Practice:

Notes: It is important to enter and exit your assigned door. This helps your teacher know

    where you are. It is our job to keep you safe and it is our job to make sure you are here

    at school. No teacher can keep track of all his/her students if they all come in different

    doors. It‟s the same with leaving. Your parents expect you to come out a certain door

    and go directly to the bus, car, or begin your walk home. They will worry about you if you

    aren‟t where you are supposed to be when you are supposed to be there. With over 500

    students at Oakview it would be IMPOSSIBLE for us all to come in and exit ONE door.

    Each classroom has an assigned door and we are expected to use that door for arrival

    and dismissal.

Practice having the class line up at their assigned door. Practice how

    they will line up and what a straight line should look like. (Even when the

    teacher isn‟t present.)

Role-play having the class line up and come in for the day. Practice lining

    up and walking out the assigned door to leave for the day. What does it

    look like? What does it sound like? What should they have with them?

Discuss “breakfast routine” for before school, rainy days, “playing” before

    and after school, etc.

Monitor:

    Throughout the week/year, notice what is going right and make specific

    comments: “Today I noticed we all were lined up and quiet as soon as

    the bell rang.” “Today Mrs. Klint noticed we were all lined up as soon as

    the bell rang.”

Review:

    Give the students feedback and make sure all students are

    recognized/rewarded.

Solicit student feedback. (How do you think we did today on our

    arrival/dismissal procedures?)

    Lunchroom

Explain Purpose:

Our lunchroom needs to be quiet. If we are using indoor voices and good

    manners, then we will be able to hear adult direction and our lunchroom

    will be a nicer place to be (Stay in Control). We also need to help keep it

    picked up. Every student at Oakview needs to be able to eat lunch and

    there are too many of us to all eat at once. Have you ever eaten at a

    restaurant and had the table dirty from the people who sat there before

    you? It‟s not fun to sit down at a messy table. Therefore we need to

    make sure our area is left neat and clean (Remain Responsible).

Specify Behaviors:

    ? Leave your area clean

    ? Respect adults

    ? Use a quiet voice

    ? Observe personal space

    ? Use good manners

Practice:

Notes:

    When someone spills food/drink on the floor, it can cause a hazardous situation where

    someone might slip and fall. Be sure to clean up any spills you see, even if it is not your

    own. You may raise your hand for assistance from an adult.

When you get your food and drink from the cafeteria staff, always say „please‟ when

    asking for something. For example, “Please may I have some chocolate milk?” Always

    say „thank you „ when you receive something. For example, the aid gives you a napkin.

    Say, “Thank you for the napkin.” When someone says “Thank you for passing the salt.”

    You respond with “You‟re welcome.” This is using good table manners.

It is important to clean up your area after eating. Mr. Mike and Mr. Joe along with the

    lunchroom helpers shouldn‟t have to be responsible for your messes. Also, the students

    who eat lunch after you should be able to sit down at a clean table with a clean place

    to put their feet. It‟s not fun eating amongst someone else‟s mess.

Make sure you follow the lunch aid‟s directions immediately, and sit where you are told

    to.

Pretend someone has spilled milk on the floor. Show your group what you

    should do when this happens.

Draw a picture showing what could happen if everyone didn‟t clean up

    after themselves when finished with lunch.

Plan a time to role-play going to lunch. What does the line look like?

    Model going through the lunch line. Model sitting at table. What would

    manners look like as you are sitting at your assigned table? Model

    cleaning up your area and lining up for recess.

Monitor:

    Throughout the week/year, notice what is going right and make specific

    comments: “Today I noticed when Jamar needed ketchup, he used

    “please” when asking for it.” “When I peeked in the lunchroom today, I noticed everyone sitting at our assigned table quietly eating.” “Today Mrs.

    Moffett‟s class said we did a good job picking up our area for them.”

Review:

    Give the students feedback and make sure all students are recognized/rewarded.

Solicit student feedback. (How do you think we did today in the

    lunchroom?)

    Recess

     Explain Purpose:

Our time on the playground is a fun time. It is also important during this

    time to practice being helpful and courteous to the other students who

    are on the playground at the same time (Empathize with Others). It is also

    a great time to practice making good choices and talking things out with

    others when disagreements arise (Assert Myself).

Specify Behaviors:

    ? Stop, think and make a good choice

    ? Talk things out

    ? Be courteous and helpful

Practice:

Notes: It can be fun to come up with new ideas on how to use the equipment on the

    playground. For instance, jumping off the swing while it is still in motion. Although it may

    be fun, that is not how the swing is intended to be used. Doing so may cause injury to

    yourself or others.

Always keep your head up and alert when on the playground. You never know when a

    ball might come at you, or another student who is running might not see you and run into

    you.

When it snows, making snowballs and having a snowball fight can be fun. However, at

    school, snowball fighting is not allowed. There may be rocks in the snow and hitting

    someone with it could seriously injure that person. Even if there aren‟t rocks/sand in the

    snowball, it could do damage if someone got hit in the face with it.

Play fighting and rough housing can also be fun. Know this though, that any play fighting

    is not allowed on school grounds. This is included when playing soccer, basketball, or

    even tag. Keep your hands and feet to yourself at all times.

Our society is based on sharing. This makes for good friendships, as well as avoiding fights.

    There might not be enough equipment for everyone to play with at recess. You must

    take turns so that it is fair to all.

Play games and have fun but make sure you play fairly by following the game rules.

    Cheating is not right, and it‟s not fun/fair for others.

When playing, include everyone. Don‟t leave someone out of the game because you

    don‟t think he/she is good at it. Everyone has a responsibility to make sure others get a

    chance to play too.

It is important to make sure you dress for the weather before you leave home. In the

    winter, you might get frostbite, be really cold or get sick. If you don‟t have proper

    footwear, you could slip and fall or get your feet wet.

    As soon as you hear the whistle/bell/direction to come in from recess, stop what you are doing and gather any equipment you brought out. Line up in a single file line immediately. You have to line up quickly so your teacher can begin her lesson and you won‟t miss out on any instruction. If you don‟t line up right away, you might not get enough classroom time to finish an assignment and then you will have it for homework.

Practice having the class line up at their assigned door when the

    whistle/bell/or direction is given. Practice how they will line up and what a straight line should look like.

    Role-play having the class line up and come in from recess. What does it look like? What does it sound like? What should they have with them?

    You and your friends want to play soccer (basketball) at recess but another class has the ball. What would you say/do?

    You are going out for recess and have checked out the soccer ball. Someone comes up with the idea to play dodge ball with it. Is this a safe idea? Why or why not?

    Take the class out to the playground and go over how to use the playground equipment properly. Have different students role-play using different pieces of equipment. What would someone do if all the swings were in use and someone wanted to swing? Model this and other

    scenarios.

    You want to play freeze tag. What should you do before hand to make sure everyone knows the rules? What should you do if someone thinks the rules are different?

    Sheila wants to join in playing Double Dutch but the rest of your group doesn‟t want her to play because she can‟t skip rope. What would be the right thing to do?

    Draw 4 pictures, one for each season, with appropriate weather wear.

Monitor:

    Throughout the week/year, notice what is going right and make specific comments: “Today I noticed that Dominic came out late and still was able to join in a game of basketball.” “It was fun watching Rita and Isabel

    organizing a game of tag.”

Review:

Give the students feedback and make sure all students are

    recognized/rewarded.

    Solicit student feedback. (How do you think we did today on our arrival/dismissal procedures?)

    Restroom

Explain Purpose:

    Bathrooms provide us a place to take care of private, personal hygiene.

    It‟s important to respect others while you are using the facilities (Empathize

    with Others). We also are there to take care of our own needs. Therefore,

    you are expected to go, flush, wash, and return to class in a timely

    manner (Stay in control).

Specify Behaviors:

    ? Respect others‟ privacy

    ? Use quiet voices, hands and feet

    ? Go, flush, wash

    ? Use your best behavior

Practice:

    Notes: You want to hurry and get out to recess but you have to go to the bathroom first.

    You knock on the door to make sure no one else is in the bathroom/stall. You wait quietly

    until the next person comes out of the stall.

Your best friend is in the bathroom stall. You know that there is only one person allowed

    in a stall. So, you go to your own stall or wait patiently for an open stall. You quietly tell

    your friend you‟ll see him/her outside or later.

If you see your friend in the bathroom, remember the rule hands and feet to self. You

    may wave “hi” to your friend instead of body checking him/her.

You can‟t see people when you are in a stall but you want to talk to them. You start to

    shout and then remember that you need to use a quiet voice.

Practice whole-class bathroom breaks. Practice how they will line up and

    what a straight line should look like. Practice entering the bathroom.

    What should it sound like? What is their job when they get in there?

Discuss bathroom breaks and procedures for leaving the classroom to use

    the bathroom.

Go over basic manners for using the bathrooms in the school.

Monitor:

    Throughout the week/year, notice what is going right and make specific

    comments: “Today I noticed Michael quickly returned from the

    bathroom.” “Mrs. Mocere commented on how quietly we used the

    bathroom during our break today.”

Review:

    Give the students feedback and make sure all students are

    recognized/rewarded.

    Solicit student feedback. (How do you think we did today using our

    bathroom procedures?)

    Office

Explain Purpose:

    The office is a place where all school business is conducted. And, it is the

    place that often produces a first impression for visitors that come to

    Oakview. Therefore, it is important that we go out of our way to be

    respectful and follow adult directions while in the office for any reason

    (Cooperate with Everyone). It is crucial for the office be a quiet place so

    the office staff can conduct business and so the students who need quiet

    time can have that time to reflect on the choices they‟ve made (Stay in

    Control).

Specify Behaviors:

    ? Follow adult instructions

    ? Respect visitors and adults

    ? Learn from your mistakes

    ? Wait patiently and quietly

Practice:

    Notes: It is important to enter and exit the office quietly and respectfully no matter what

    your reason is for going to the office. You should make sure you have a pass with you

    when entering the office. Everyone who comes into the office MUST wait at Mrs. Klint‟s

    desk quietly and patiently to let her know why you are there.

Practice through a role-play, having the students wait their turn, asking

    permission to use the phone, and using their manners and quiet voices

    when entering the office. (For example: If Mrs. Mocere had to send a

    student down to the office to finish a test and I had to send you down to

    the office to “get yourself together,” would it be fair to Mrs. Mocere‟s

    student for you to walk in yelling, screaming and kicking chairs because

    you are mad?)

Going to the office isn‟t always a “bad” thing. Brainstorm a list of all the

    reasons someone may go to the office. (Deliver sucker sale money, lunch

    money, call home, meet parent for a doctor‟s appointment, etc.)

Monitor:

    Throughout the week/year, notice what is going right and make specific

    comments: “Yesterday Bree went to the office to get herself together.

    She wasn‟t happy about it, but Mr. Geoff told me she was very respectful

    and quiet as she waiting in the office.” “Todd remembered to take the

    office pass with him when he delivered our sucker sale money to Mrs.

    Klint.”

Review:

    Give the students feedback and make sure all students are

    recognized/rewarded.

    Solicit student feedback. (How do you think our office procedures are

    working today?)

    Learning Events

Explain Purpose:

When we are at various learning events, including art, music, gym, library,

    computer lab, field trips, assemblies and more, we need to be good

    representatives of Oakview School. These events require us to not only

    listen, but to also raise our hands when we want to actively participate in

    the program or discussion and many times use various materials provided

    to us in an appropriate manner (Cooperate with Everyone). In addition, it

    is our responsibility to make sure we are being courteous to the others at

    the event and to the instructor or leader of the event by listening,

    following directions, being helpful and patient (Empathize with Others).

Specify Behaviors:

    ? Listen and be an active participant

    ? Use materials appropriately

    ? Be courteous and helpful

    ? Be patient

Practice:

Notes: Sometimes you might be required to bring materials or equipment with you. Find

    out ahead of time what that might be. For gym, you will need gym shoes. For a class

    skating trip you may have to bring warm clothes, hats and mittens. For the computer lab

    you may have to bring a story you have written. If you don‟t have these things ready

    you may not be allowed to go.

When going on a field trip, it is important that you stay with your group and don‟t wander

    off by yourself or with friends. You could get lost, and it‟s safer to be in a group with an

    adult.

Make sure you know who your group leader is. Always know where that person is to

    make sure you know when your group is leaving. If you run into any problems or have

    questions, you know who to turn to.

Keep your hands and feet to yourself. You have a right to be safe and to keep others

    safe.

When entering the gym or lunchroom for a special assembly, morning meeting or

    presentation, enter in a quiet, orderly manner. Be respectful of our guest and always

    remember you are representing Oakview School even though you may not be leaving

    the building.

Practice having the class line up to attend an in-school function. Practice

    how they will line up and what a straight line should look like.

For field trips that are away from school, have the students discuss how

    they can be prepared to go on a class trip. When should they gather

    their things? Who should help them?

    Provide the art, music and gym teachers with your set of classroom rules and expectations. In addition ask those teachers for some of their expectations.

    Practice lining up and walking to a special event. What does it look like? What does it sound like? What should they have with them?

    Role-play some situations when they may be in an all-school morning meeting, or an assembly. Have students show you how they should sit and how they might be able to actively participate.

Monitor:

    Throughout the week/year, notice what is going right and make specific comments: “This morning during our All-School Morning Meeting, Jasmine

    sign language clapped for every birthday.” “When we went to the assembly with the magician, I noticed Louie raised his hand to participate. By doing this he showed active participation even though he wasn‟t picked for the stunt.”

Review:

    Give the students feedback and make sure all students are

    recognized/rewarded.

    Solicit student feedback. (What did you notice during the special event today that went well? What do we still need to work on?)
