references. Followed up with phone calls to parents who hadn't responded. Produced a final sheet of appointments the teacher could follow on conference day.
The TA's made an important contribution to the student's education, because if the Ts had had to do this, it would have interfered with time they had to plan, evaluate S. work, etc. Often the TAs were able to work together on the task without taking up T. time.
Supervise bus lines at the end of the day
Be outside five minutes before the bell to supervise S. behavior during bus loading
Helped students find their bus as necessary. Made sure Ss boarded buses without pushing, shoving or other dangerous behavior. Made sure Ss stayed out of traffic.
Ss tend to be wound up at the end of the day and more impulsive. It's important to have as many people on duty as possible because of the buses and cars coming and going.
Be on the playground during recess. Supervise Ss lining up to go back inside. Help settle significant disputes, deal with behavior problems, be ready to handle emergencies.
Watch and observe. Do not intervene in minor problems if the Ss can settle it among themselves. In case of minor injury, send the student in with one other student. In case of serious injury, one TA stays with student while the other goes for help.
Playground duty is valuable because it gives the TA a chance to see the students in new ways and in a non-classroom setting.
Write up behavior report
Use the appropriate form and provide as many pertinent details as possible
Use the behavioral report form. Fill in all details as completely as possible, naming all students involved, the nature of the problem, and any steps I took before, during or after the incident to resolve it. Fill the form out in a culturally sensitive way.
It was interesting to see afterwards the completed form, with the principal's notations of what each student said. Each student's version was different than mine in at least one way. I wondered whether they were deliberately lying or if that really was how they remembered it.
Organized birthday exchange drawing.
Set up a form with everyone's name so all would be included.
Had each staff member write birthday on a piece of paper. Drew out names randomly and matched them to an alphabetical list. Each person brought in some kind of treat on their assigned person's birthday to celebrate.
This was fun! We had some sort of treats in the teacher's lunch room at least twice a week. It really contributed to good feelings among the staff.
