At Dr. Charles R. Drew, we view behavior as a skill that needs to be taught, just like reading and math. To prepare for these lessons, classrooms should be set up with the following needs in mind:
_______ Welcome back bulletin board
_______ Take a Break/Calming area and routine planned
_______ Buddy Room routine and partnership planned
_______ PBIS Matrix (Poster with all areas of the school) is posted
_______ Plan a morning entry routine and post
_______ Plan rituals and routines for in your classroom (What to do when I am finished my work; when the teacher is working with a small group; if I have to use the bathroom; what if I have a question; how to work in partnerships; how to work in small groups etc.)
_______ How you will collect Dragon Bucks and display them?
