Being proactive: it’s criticial for creating positive school environments. Children must be aware of behavioral expectations and then they must be taught the appropriate behaviors in a supportive environment. Often, children aren’t trying to misbehave. They just aren’t aware of what they are supposed to do. All children can behave!
Behavioral expectations should be stated positively, and they should be easy for students to remember. This book was created to help students remember appropriate behaviors so that they can be positive contributors to the school climate.
Each page in this emergent reader states the correct way to act a different school situation using the sentences starters "I can" and "I will." Teachers can use the sentence strips in a pocket chart to read with students. The teacher can explain the behavior, demonstrate the correct behavior, and call on students to demonstrate the behavior. The book covers basic kind, safe and responsible behavior concepts appropriate for any elementary school: hallway, bathroom, cafeteria, playground, playing fair, sharing, keeping hands to self.
Included are the student printable book (10 pages) and sentence strips for the pocket chart.
