Tomorrow is Take Your Child To Work Day. If you know you will be enjoying the time with your child, please send me an email. Thank you.
We have been issuing some tickets in the classroom. This is a fourth quarter behavior plan. The children continue to get paid Excellence Dollars to buy items from the treasure box, coupons, and/or stuffed animals. However, if they violate some rules, they must pay the ticket price. There are occasional forgetful moments that a ticket may be issued, but most likely not repeated. FAILURE LEADS TO SUCCESS! Just like in the real world, if I get a ticket for being on my phone, I'm sure I will be more careful not to use my phone while driving. However, I am seeing some repeat offenders and we've only been doing this for one week. I'm thinking I may have to hold a conference or two with some of these students and invite in a parent to help with the support of learning from our mistakes. Perhaps a conversation at home might be just what they need.
On a positive note, the class can earn surprise rewards for no violations given out!
Take a peek at our students who lost a tooth this week and who I ate lunch with!
Enjoy the night!
