We're working on starting a behaviour system at our school known as Positive Behaviour Support (where we specifically and directly teach kids what is required of them in terms of behaviour - what a novel idea! :) ) and this past week we were to do the first lesson plan centering around behaviour expectations for moving through the hallways and stairways.
The handout from our principal included a few suggestions for our lessons:
* Drama activities highlighting hallway and stairway behaviour
* Writing activities
* Art projects such as posters
* Classroom discussions
* 12th century style lectures (monk habit and rosewood lectern available for loan upon request)
I'm sorry, what? Read that last one again.
During the meeting, I joked about wanting to borrow the habit on Thursday morning for my lecture.
"Sure! It's actually a snuggie."
If you have to go to staff meetings, at least we're kept amused!
Oh, and in searching for a link or an image of a snuggie, I came across this and I think I'm traumatized.
