So it was back to work for me, last week. It's been pretty good, setting up my classwork, catching up with students and trying to get my schedule figured out! Scheduling is always the biggest headache of teaching resource, trying to coordinate with the general education teachers and figuring out the best time to pull students so it doesn't conflict with specials, lunch, and the meat and potatoes of the lessons. It's always changing as well, as teachers make changes, and I have students joining us throughout the school year if they've transferred in, or recently qualified for services.
Anyway, I don't know about your school, but ours uses a school wide behavior system called PBIS, which is short for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. A fellow teacher recommended a website called PBIS World which has a list of behaviors, click on the behavior, and it has a list of descriptions of the behaviors, click yes my student fits that description, or no they don't. If you click yes they have a suggestions to help you with these students, as well as Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions. They also have all sorts of resources for tracking behaviors, interventions, and tracking data. It's similar to the PRIM manual which is the Pre Referral Intervention Manual, which is a great resource for special education teachers (especially resource teachers).
Free Printable Behavior Charts is another great resource, and website I found through this website. They have a lot of different behavior charts that you can use in your classroom, or that parents can use at home.
I've already talked about Class Dojo which is also a great resource for reinforcing positive behavior in the classroom. All of these resources are free!
Any other great resources out there for helping with and tracking behavior and/or goals? I'd love to hear about them!!
Hope you enjoy your weekend!
