As part of the process of developing good self management skills, we need to work together - school and home.
PB4L reminds us that routines need to be explicit and directly taught. If children or young people have difficulty with a routine, parents and teachers should model and immediately re-teach in a simplified way.
It is so easy to forget that children might not know all the steps to cleaning their teeth well, or how to empty their bag after school. Or they might not know how to take turns or how to wash their hands after they have gone to the toilet.
At school we are deliberately teaching the children specific expectations and reinforcing them with praise and encouragement, sometimes using 'Spotchas'.
