Hallways Reminder

Block Day "Brain Breaks" are to be short (no more than 5 mins) and in class. Do not release your class to the hallways or bathrooms unsupervised or in groups.
  • Chunk block day activities into manageable and varied learning segments.
  • Put in place predictable routines.
  • Set a clear agenda for the longer period of time that helps you and the students know what's coming next throughout the period.
