So I will admit there are certain things that really “drive me up the wall.”
One is when a student/client hollers DONE when completing an activity. I have taught, modeled, and lectured on NOT shouting DONE.
Yes, I admit I might have lectured a bit about this subject. Even though I know, that isn’t the answer. As I sat frustrated and about to pull my hair out, I realized that this wasn’t my student’s fault but my own.
As I sat frustrated and about to pull my hair out, I realized that this wasn’t my student’s fault but my own. Have you taught them what is EXPECTED of them when they are done? I know I have taught this, but not in a manner that stuck.
I am creating a strategy for the end of the year and starting the year because I am D.O.N.E hearing DONE!
Teaching Done starts with:
- Expected vs. Unexpected Behavior classroom rules
- Social Story “What to do when I am DONE?”
- Pre-teaching (pre-teaching and not preaching) and reminders of what students can do when completing an activity.
If you have any thoughts or ideas about supporting this issue, please let me know!
