Behavior Expectation Lesson Plan
Created by Ben & Nathan in January 2011
Teach – September 15, 2011
Kelly & Shantel

Behavior expectation or rule to be taught: Be Respectful

Location for expectation:  Cafeteria

Rationale- It is important to be respectful by using our inside voices because there are many students present in the cafeteria.  It is important to eat our own food because it could lead to spreading germs to one another and people could get upset.  It is important to stay in line so you do not injure yourself or someone else and people do not cutting in line.

Note: Remind students about not throwing away silverware and sitting on bottoms in the chairs.

Provide examples to help students better understand what is and what is not the expected behavior:

Examples of expected behavior. Choose examples of that best “fits” the general case of what the behavior expectation


Non examples of expected behavior that are:

·     More similar to examples of expected behavior rather than outrageous nonexamples

·     Typical of what students do when they are not engaged in the expected behavior


Bob and Bill are talking to each other with a calm voice.   They can hear each other and other students can hear their friends.

Bob and Bill are eating their own food for lunch.  They keep their hands to themselves and eat quietly. 

Bill and Bob get in line and they stay in line and wait their turn to get their lunch.


Bob and Bill are talking to each other.  Bob is talking extremely loud so Bill talks louder and pretty soon everyone is talking very loud and no one can hear anybody.

Bob and Bill are eating their lunch.  Bob grabs Bill sandwich and starts eating it.  Bill gets upset.

Bill and Bob get in line and Bob goes and talks to Joe.  Then Bill yells at Bob because he cut in line.

Provide opportunities to practice and build fluency:

1.Set aside a few minutes right before lunch to review and practice the rule.

2. As the teacher models, have individual students demonstrate examples and nonexamples of the following the rule (role play)

3.Tell students about the consequences for following and not following the rules
