Behavior Tip of the Week:
Experiencing a higher volume of off task behavior? Students who are ready for summer break?
Consider a free way to give your students an appropriate way to move and be off task in a controlled way using the Google Extension called MOVE IT!
(Link: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/move-it/kopilngnmfklhhjocdfdlokmodibcbmk?hl=en-US) With this Chrome extension, you can provide natural breaks in your class period for students to MOVE about, then return to work.
Other ideas for OFF TASK BEHAVIOR are included in PRIM STRATEGY 104
Carefully plan seating arrangements, CHAMP expectations, and teacher check in's on given classwork and see if OFF TASK behavior is reduced!
Let us know which strategy you have tried by next Wednesday for a treat in your teacher box.
