For the next week however, the notes were repeatedly about the trouble Rachel was having on the "big" kid playground and that she refused to go down the slide. I was relieved that this seemed to be the most pressing concern and figured that the classroom part was going okay.
At this point I wrote a note to ask about what was being done to help Rachel follow the class rules. The teacher said that she uses redirection and time out but that Rachel will not stay in time out. I have suggested that the teacher uses the "first we do this, then we can do that" to try to keep Rachel on task and that the use of a visual schedule would probably help too.
