After a few weeks of our classroom rules procedures, there might be a student who needs specific expectations. I will sit with them and usually a parent. We discuss the general classroom rules. I usually note 1 that they do well and others that need more attention. Then we write down more specific rules for them to follow.
Example: My general rule 1 is to follow directions quickly
When working with a student, I may say that their number 1 is...
Follow directions quickly the first time.
