My school does a program called R-Time. R-Time stands for Relationships to IMprove Education. This is such a great program and this year we are implementing it along with the PBIS model. In R-Time students greet one another and interact through a short activity. A lot of these activities are "talking" ones, while some require a few materials.
Before we begin our R-Time lesson we review the rules as well as the language we can use when talking to one another. What's great about this program is that pretty quickly I start to hear my kids talk to teacher using these positive questions or phrases in other areas of our day!
This product can be used during a formal R-time lesson, or in other activities where students are working together.
This product includes a black and white version as well as a color version.
