Behavior Management Sit Smart Poster/Anchor Charts and a Few Other Goodies

This Sit Smart poster, poem and individual posters was created and customized for my daughter’s Special Education Class. She teaches kindergarten and has used the term “Sit Smart” forever. The original free chart was created for her kiddos, but this year she wanted each letter and visual to be on a different sheet so the class could view it from their seats or anywhere in the classroom.

When I was teaching full time I realized the importance or modeling and practicing expected behaviors during the first few weeks of school. I found that when I spend time doing this and somewhat forgetting about slamming in the academics, the class was so much more ready to learn and the behaviors and expectations were in place so they knew and understood what was expected in our classroom so everyone could have a productive environment where each child is viewed as a contributing member of our classroom community.

Here is what we did and how we used these Anchor Charts/Posters:

Day 1- during Morning Meeting we introduced one poster starting with sitting Crisscross applesauce and the Original “Poem” included. We demonstrated, modeled, asked students what does sitting crisscross look like and what might it sound like. Then we asked them to share with a talking partner why it might be important to sit crisscross on the rug. As we instructed the class to raise their hand a share out, we jotted down their ideas. We then placed the poster in a spot that the children helped us decide so they took ownership of the behavior expected.

Day 2- We proceeded in this manner for 4 days during Morning Meeting for each of the 4 letters M,A,R,T. This takes 5 days total! I know you are saying “SAY WHAT?” The posters are then placed next to each other according to the chosen spot.

Day 5 we teach T and then model and practice the entire sequence as scripted above in Day 1.

Each time the expectation is to sit SMART, we say who can remind me of how we sit smart and we go over it by asking children, “What do you notice about sitting smart?” We go over expectations of all routines other than this everyday until they are embedded and automatic. It takes time, but IT IS WORTH IT!

Here is what is included:

Don’t See What you Want? Do you use different words, terms, theme for classroom Décor or ways of teaching concepts? Maybe you need Names printed on Name cards/desk tags etc? Do you Need Something Customized Just for You...Even though a resource might be editable, it can be hard sometimes to get it just right! I love to create and would be more than happy to customize any of my resources just for you so you can focus on what is important during your school year and give yourself more time! In most cases the cost will be the same, but if it is a resource that I do not have in my shop, then the price can be discussed. I have customized many resources for districts including Kindergarten, Special Education all areas, ELL, First Grade and more. If this is something you need or want...leave the creating or editing( of my resources) to me! E-mail me through “Ask the seller a Question” above.
