Clip to ScrapBook #32

I use # order and have the first go to the end the next day. This way there is no running or arguing in line and everyone gets their chance to be the leader. I also always tell my kids, "I take a quiet straight line in the hall," and then I wait. I only need to wait for a few seconds. This is sixth grade. When I had the little ones I said a little chant that they chanted with me: Hands are at my sides; I do not talk. Looking straight ahead; I'm ready to walk.

I always practice line etiquette. We walk for safety reasons, we use a straight line to make room for others in the hall, we don't talk to respect other classes in session.

I tell kids if they are stepping on people's heels that they are going to fast and need to slow down. We do not step out of line. They are often reminded that this will be the last year they need to walk in line in the hallways. This cheers them a little, but much of the etiquette remains the same even when they are in a middle school.

Many teachers in our school use different methods. Some use two lines, some one, some with hands clasped behind their backs and so on.
