Find a quiet place to talk
Ask each person to tell what happened. Listen to both sides.
Brainstorm ideas on how to solve the problem. (at least 3 or 4)
Choose one solution that is agreeable to everyone.
9. Reactive Primary Management Restate the rule and the reason for the rule as necessary.
Example: We need to use our indoor voices because with so many of us talking as we work, it is too distracting for some learners.
Take exercise and/or nutrition breaks as needed
Use verses and clapping patterns to reorient attention as needed
10. Reactive Primary Management Insure safety at all times.
In JK and SK teachers often enforce “no hitting” with a “You hit, you sit” timeout strategy.
In grades 1, 2, and 3 you may use the “Red, Yellow, Green Light” strategy with individual students.

12. Positive Reactive Management Strategies Red, Yellow, Green Light:
Red light- I know I am angry and that when I am angry I often invade others personal space and may hurt them.
I need to take some time to think things through and deal with my anger.
13. Positive Reactive Management Strategies Red, Yellow, Green Light:
Yellow: I can now think of things that I could do outside that are positive and will not get me into trouble. I have chosen three things I’ll do.
Green light: I am going outside and I’m going to try out my solutions. If I am having trouble, I’ll seek out the teacher on duty.
