Learning Goals for Today's Workshop

Today we will learn / review:

  • Mindfulness strategies
  • Use of positive behavior support strategies to proactively supervise students to prevent problems on the playground, in the cafeteria, and within and around the school building
  • Safety and emergency response procedures
  • Important staff communication (email, syring week ahead, google calendar)
  • Importance of keeping confidentiality about students
  • Schedules for supervision before / after school, recess / lunch, fall testing, fall data meetings


Positive behavior support
Supervision Checklist

These are the expectations of supervising students in various areas: playground, cafeteria, hallways, outside waiting before school, etc.

Free and Inexpensive Reward Ideas

You can use CREEK slips (I suggest pre-filling what they are earned for and then making copies so they are easy to just initial and hand to kids to put their own name on). Some aides have found stickers can be very motivating.
