Gradual Release Classroom Management Strategy

       This is something we do in our class to make sure students are working by themselves when it's time to practice independently.  We came up with some secret clue words for them to know when to move their desks apart and a secret clue of when to put their desks back together.  We usually start out a lesson with teacher modeling, then practicing together and working with partners, and the working independently.  We say "Take One- Action" to move our desks apart and we say "That's a Wrap" to move them back into groups and we stuck with our classroom movie theme for a secret clue words.
