She walks away to the dramatic play area to let children know it is clean up. 10 minutes have gone by and the areas are still not cleaned up.

Teacher walks over to the lights and switches off the lights.Put away the toys, now”. Robert and Tyron leave block area and go sit down for group time without putting away the blocks. At the end of the day when Robert’s Mom came to pick him up the teacher remarked, “Robert didn’t follow instructions today.
