    I use visual cues daily. Our day starts with students reading and following our color coded “Do now” ( always I’m green) Morning Message and question of the day. Rubrics are referred to on an anchor chart and for students to check themselves. A mini wipe off board is by the door with our goal to beat ( or stay) of how long it takes to line up silently. Weekly models are utilized to show the class what it looks like and sounds like when a direction is given. The “timer” ( yes, this a child’s job for the week) times how long a behavior takes. It keeps the students accountable and to strive for a class goal ( I teach 3rd grade). Responsive classroom has taught endless strategies and activities that have helped me teach and reflect for decades!
