Train Students to be Attentive to Their Behavior in Small Groups, then try it in the Large Group Classroom

This chart was created in September 2003 for a third grade student with academic issues because of attentive concerns and new to Irene's small group classroom. After using the chart for one week, the student went from completing two grade-level questions in one hour - to completing three grade-level worksheets in one hour (period).

Notes From Irene: Sometimes students need to become aware of their own attentional issues. What are they paying attention to? Attention was given to other kids moving around, what adults were saying, and so on. Instead of repeating "do your work", "keep working", "are you done" and so on.. try making it positive. Use minimal adult language to avoid overload. This chart was introduced as a fun activity. Whenever the question, "Are you working?" was asked, the student went, "ahh" then marked the chart. It was like an, "ahh, I did it again", like learning how to play a video game before learning how to get it right!

The student was so proud that he asked if he could take a chart to the large group Social Studies class. He marked his own chart with one adult, then other adults only saying "Are you working?"

Show  Students How to be Attentive to Their Behavior in Small Groups, then try it in the Large Group Classroom

This chart was created by Irene to show a student how to react to environmental stimulus while in her classroom. She deliberately had adults re-enter the classroom so the student could practice what to do or how to keep working when someone walks in the room and has something to say to an adult.

Irene would tell the adult to try coming in her classroom again so she and the student could see what "the student/name" does. Irene allows the students to earn green marks the first times, while developing the behavior.

Notes From Irene: Students may need specific explanations of how to develop behaviors specific to each and every situation. "Students must learn it before they do it."

Once a student learns it, then does it successfully - the chart will no longer be needed. Red and Green Choices allows students to be attentive to their behaviors and make informed decisions while making their expectations and environment more predictable and clear.

Examples for Blanks: When...
I need help with a math problem...   I need help reading a word...
I miss a direction...                        The room is too noisy...
