    Q2: Could you give an example of what has worked well or an example of something that hasn't worked well. #espechat
  • CapnPetesPE Mar 7 @ 8:19 PM EST
    Rock, Paper, Scissors is a lifesaver for sure! #espechat
  • PErachelbell Mar 7 @ 8:19 PM EST
    not too long! I think bc I got pretty serious with them beforehand which I try not to do. They could sense the change #espechat
    In reply to @PEbyMrE
  • PhysEdFit Mar 7 @ 8:19 PM EST
    I have students go to the "learning circle" for new activities. Using the words learning circle helps their off task behavior. #espechat
  • MrCsajko - Moderator Mar 7 @ 8:20 PM EST
    A2: Early on in my career I had squad spots in a semi-circle where students faced each other....yyyyyyyyyyyeah, that did not work #espechat
  • PlymouthCreekPE Mar 7 @ 8:20 PM EST
    A1 use a whistle if I am going to explain/talk longer than 30 seconds, freeze if less than. #espechat

    Rock Paper Scissors was a HUGE time saver when I was at the k-6 level. Still works now too but really effective in elem #espechat

    How long does it typically take to teach your class the leader's job so you trust them to do it? #espechat
    In reply to @PhysEdDepot
  • CoachW_TCE Mar 7 @ 8:20 PM EST
    A2 to get kids quiet I have them repeat "I am listening" or "I am quiet". Now our after school program has started saying it lol #espechat

    A2 Ss divided into stations w color wristbands. color dots on floor, line up when change stations. Works great w large # of kids. #espechat
  • PEbyMrE Mar 7 @ 8:21 PM EST
    Yes, yes, it is. Vital to all PE programs. #espechat
    In reply to @CapnPetesPE
  • peshoes Mar 7 @ 8:21 PM EST
    A2- sometimes allowing those that are behavioral high flyers get the partner they connect with is well worth it.not all the time. #espechat
  • CapnPetesPE Mar 7 @ 8:21 PM EST
    A2: Just started using Staion Expectations and they seem to help. Can always bring them back around if off task #espechat
  • PhysEdDepot Mar 7 @ 8:21 PM EST
    It's usually as simple as hitting start on the laptop, so not long at all! #espechat
    In reply to @PEbyMrE
  • dfeister Mar 7 @ 8:21 PM EST
    A2 Ss who struggle with following expectations get sent to refocus. 3 simple questions. We disc. And they return. #espechat
  • smsandino Mar 7 @ 8:22 PM EST
    A2 A couple expectations in an umbrella format vs. a large number of expectations! Keep it simple is what worked best for me #espechat
  • PlymouthCreekPE Mar 7 @ 8:22 PM EST
    A2 I like for them to have different things to do upon entering as it forces them to be ready to learn the moment they RUN in #espechat
  • bobcatsPE Mar 7 @ 8:22 PM EST
    A2 Setting your expectations high for Ss to follow procedures andbeing consistent with those set procedures b firm #espechat

    Whole group rewards did not work for me, seem to have to punish the good kids or reward the ones that did not earn it. #espechat
  • PErachelbell Mar 7 @ 8:22 PM EST
    not really! The 1st time I did it it was kind of a last minute idea. Ive done some yoga classes on campus #espechat
    In reply to @CoachThigpen, @PEbyMrE
  • CoachWilliams23 Mar 7 @ 8:23 PM EST
    A2 my routine to get ss attention works well. It even works with kids at other schools that I don't know #espechat

    I don't want to say I winged it but I just kind of went with it one day when I didn't know what else to do #espechat

    A2: the yoga worked well! Its a way to calm them down, think about their actions, but not take away physical activity completely #espechat
  • CapnPetesPE Mar 7 @ 8:24 PM EST
    Giving material rewards to ind. studetnts that stuggle for good behavior works at first but isn't fair to those that always behave #espechat

    #espechat a2 quietly saying clap once if you can hear me. Clap twice off you can hear me. Keep going until everybody is quiet and lessening.

    A2. PBIS has worked too, we reward Ss who do their best and follow procedures, rules etc. with Bobcat bucks that they can cash in #espechat
