Controlling Dismissal Frenzy!

At our school of 700 students and 18 buses each day...dismissal can be pretty scary for our little kiddos.
This year our 5 first grades asked for 5th grade buddies.  We started with them coming to our classrooms to wait with the kiddos until their bus was dismissed and then they would walk them out.  YIKES..5th graders and a room full of anxious 1st graders did not mix so...I created these visuals and put them on paint stirrers.  Now two fifth graders stand at the end of the hall with the sign as a bus is called.  They take the all the first graders for that bus out.  Ahhhh!  Much better.  So I made a set for you with out bus numbers so you can add them to your files if you can use them.  Enjoy the week everyone!  Michele
