Mrs. Chapman has a simple, tight dismissal routine.
1. Students are called by table to check their mailboxes and grab their coats and bags from their cubbies.
2. Table suppliers return pencil cups and other borrowed materials to the circle table so that all desks are cleared. This keeps the number of moving people at one time to a minimum.
3.Once students have packed up their materials, they are to read silently. This ensures that the time to conference at the end of the day with each student about their behavior and any changes made to their classdojo account.
