Here is a simple, 4 step Dismissal routine. We put this up on the Smartboard while our students pack up.
1. Students get their lunchboxes from the lunch cart
2. Students get their backpacks from the closets
3. Students bring their lunchboxes and backpacks (and jackets) to a table
4. Students go to the cubbies to get their folders
After all 4 steps, the students are able to pack up at their tables.
