Let's set our students up for success by showing them a concrete representation of what the expected behaviors are during transitions to/from/ and within different areas in the classroom and school building. This download contains visuals paired with text that outline classroom rules so that you and the various individuals who interact with your students can frequently reference these visuals and ensure that you are using common language. It also contains visual rules specific to entering the classroom (to be posted outside the room), entering the hallway (to be posted by door), independent work area, lunch room, and the break area. There is also a visual necklace containing 12 images (ex I need the bathroom, stop, wait, quiet) that comes in handy for on the fly behavior support. Many students with special needs benefit from visual supports to outline appropriate behaviors. Prior to any transition into, within or out of my classroom, I point to the corresponding rule visuals and recite the rules with my students so that they are aware of the expected behaviors at any given time.
