Hi Justin, I also learned a lot from the 5 years that I taught Read 180, especially that routines are so important. Last year, I actually made my routines into a book with my students with severe behavior problems. We started with getting off the bus and then continued until they got back on the bus. No part of the day was deemed insignificant. We wrote what each behavior should look like and sound like --with student input for the final product. Then, we had the booklet already done for new students. We did modify during the year as the need arose, and I plan to do the same thing this year --going to a new school with student who exhibit the most severe behavior in the district.
