Clip to ScrapBook #4

When I have a class of second graders that can't walk down the hall quietly, we go back to the room and start all over again, so "we can practice" how to do it! We start out again and if they still can't get it then we do it again. If I know who's doing it, I deliver the others to where we were headed and then the ones who don't know how to be quiet in the halls go back for private practice sessions. We do it until we can do it quietly. It's frustrating for me because I usually have stuff I could be doing, but it's worth the time to do it because eventually they do catch on. They don't like missing or being late to their specials or recess. Every so often there will be another outbreak of noisy-itis and we just go back and practice again. Message received by them, loud and clear! Just be consistent and persistent!
