“Milestones to Reach for Further Routines”:

*If you have used the individual pocket chart and still have a select group of students who are exhibiting undesired behaviors, use the independents group

*Once students are comfortable with “Tell your neighbor”, move to “Teach! Okay!”, with both students talking

*Once students are comfortable with “Teach! Okay!” add in the ‘Switch’!’

*Once students are comfortable with the “Teach! Okay!”, teach the students the Crazy Professor (a video available on this site; free download coming soon).
