Have you heard about the Mystery Walker?
If not, you are missing out on a behavior management secret for having the most perfect, quiet lines. Next to my door I have
student numbers in a jar. You can use whatever you have (I used poker chips of all things!), once students are in line, I draw a
number, revealing to NOBODY. I tell the students I am looking for our Mystery Walker of the day – someone who exhibits amazing hallway behavior, no talking, hands to themselves, etc.
If the Mystery Walker exhibits the wanted behavior they receive a
Mystery Walker certificate. My students would get so excited just to earn a piece of paper and have an award for the day. I had the same Mystery Walker for the entire day, but use what works for you!
