Note: I must tell you before you read this that the behavior technique explained here was used to be expedient in responding to the situation-it gave us a little extra time to attend to it before things got out of hand. It usually worked without our intervention whatsoever...other times we did have to step in, but the conditions were much less elevated due to our little "strategy". We  did have conversations with the child about alternative things to do and this little technique gave him an opportunity to decompress and be ready to listen. A behavior plan was made and followed.

Good Behavior New Year's Resolutions!!!! Let these "Animals Acting Badly" posters help to remind students of behaviors that are Not acceptable. Each poster may seem silly at first, but they sure do pack a powerful and important to be mindful, respectful, and considerate of others! Very attention-getting and kid-friendly! Will stimulate discussions of appropriate/ inappropriate behaviors. Perfect for K-2. Only a small sampling of posters shown. See more at
