Good morning! Welcome to


Managing the
Unmanageable. Explain to
please start creating these
when they get seated. Find a
shoulder partner and share
the information on the name
tents. Fun things this
summer. Introduce Nicole
Pryor, Tracy Malveau, and
myself as Instructional
Specialists. Hold up the
packet and ask them to turn
to the next page. Mention the
seating chart styles that give
ideas for going beyond rows.
Weve done them in pairs
today to give you an idea of
how that would work. If
youd like support with
seating arrangements, we
encourage you to contact us
because well not be going in
depth on that today.

4-square reflection

Explain Handouts:
Katie
Resources you can use for
those booger bears that
arent motivated by the
systems youve put in place.
That is the nice non-swear
word wear of identifying
those difficult students. One
is a reflection for you so you
can understand the behavior
with that particular booger
bear. Ex-I had a student
(Ive apparently blocked out
his name) Student was a class
clown, I observed him and
determined he was smart,
finished with his work but
needed attention, so became
my T.A. One is a reflection
for them to fill out after
theyve had a behavior issue
that went past a warning.
Keep these in a binder. The
last one is a contract for you
to utilize after theyve had to
do 2 or 3 reflections. Ideally
youd want a parent there
but if thats not possible, I
would bring in a counselor or
administrator, or possibly
more of the students
teachers in order to show
that you are serious about
creating an effective plan for
him or her.
