Review PBIS Expectations And Rules

Review PBS Expectations And Rules

Why should I do it:

  • Refreshes the school rules and procedures with students
  • Reminds students what expectations are
  • Can apply to all students in class without “blaming” them for doing anything wrong or bad
  • Non-threatening
  • Takes the “blame” off the teacher or authority figure for having to follow rules and expectations, for example, you have to sit in your seat and cannot stand in it because the rules say we need to be safe
  • It is something all students are already familiar with, so no new teaching needs to take place, which makes it fast and more easily comprehended
  • Going over the rules and expectations multiple times reinforces good behavior choices

When should I do it:

  • When a student, students, group, or class are not following PBIS rules and expectations
  • When the class or school seems to be “slipping” in following through PBIS expectations
  • Midway through the year as a refresher and to help start off the after Christmas period on a positive foot
  • On a regular basis as part of classroom management, for example, reviewing one PBIS rule or expectation per week

How do I do it:

  • Use a calm, neutral, non-threatening tone
  • Do short lessons, demonstrations, and discussions on PBIS concepts, routine, expectations, etc on a weekly, daily, and/or monthly basis
  • Randomly call on students to state specific PBIS expectations or concepts, then reward them with a small treat, for example, “Suzy, how are we supposed to line up for recess?”
  • As part of regular redirection, for example, “start your assignment and work quietly to respect others who are working” or “make sure to wash your hands after using the restroom”
