The School Hallway Safety scenario

Scenarios Included

The School Hallway Guide includes: - A detailed lesson plan designed and reviewed by seasoned educators. - Three colorful worksheets (will render splendidly in black and white as well) - A bonus article, the School Hallway is Much Better - Two scenario sheets ready for distribution - Answer key - Some exclusive graphics of school hallway situations As always, I have priced this package for the people in the trenches. It’s affordable and the flexible licensing options will accommodate even the tightest budgets.

Here is a sampler from the guide:

3- Ask students to describe or demonstrate what positive (appropriate) hallway behaviour both looks and sounds like. Some examples might include: using quiet or inside voices, facing forward, keeping hands and feet to yourself, walking and no play fighting. Consider asking a volunteer to model what good hallway behaviour looks and sounds like. Many children learn visually, so it may add some fun to have children demonstrate their answers for the class.

4- Creation of a Word Wall: Prepare a list of both positive and negative hallway behaviours on card stock and laminate them. Affix the Positive Hallway Behaviour and Negative Hallway Behaviour headings on a wall close to the door.

a) Positive Hallway Behaviour

b) Negative Hallway Behaviour

Show students one word at a time, and have them identify whether the behaviour is a Positive Hallway Behaviour or a Negative Hallway Behaviour. Have the student who identified the correct answer stick the word on the wall under the correct heading, creating a word wall in the process. Creating the word wall by the classroom door serves as a visual reminder for students about appropriate hallway etiquette, each time they line up to enter the hallway.

Some Behaviours to Include:

  • Positive/Appropriate- facing forward, hands and feet to yourself, walking, staying on the right side, quiet voices, quiet footsteps, stay in line, hold open doors, silent waves.
  • Negative/Inappropriate: Running, yelling, pushing, walking on both sides of the hall, slamming doors, stopping in the hallway, play fighting...

Please note, as this booklet was written and published in Canada, Canadian spelling is used in the guide/lesson plan (e.g. behaviour). However, there are two sets of worksheets, one for Canadian and U.K. customers and the other adapted for USA; therefore this should not effect your ability to deliver this to kids in the USA. Typically, my booklets accommodate American spelling, with the exception of this one- I stayed Canadian! :-D
