Our district back to school
I had a request about how my classroom management system works...here's the original source by Rick Morris. We were encouraged as a school to use this system or something very similar to it. As a grade level we knew we had to use the same system because of walk to read. At first I was VERY reluctant to change...what I had worked. I had the classic red, yellow, and green light system. Kids NEVER got to move their clip back UP. I was cruel and heartless and I was totally okay with that. Anyway...I had to face reality. So I made this chart...
On Fridays I pull out two tickets and those two now famous kids get to choose something from the treasure box. Now you may ask, what about those kids that go above and beyond? Well they get to move their clip to ME! I wear their clip for as long as they continue that super outstanding behavior and they also get ANOTHER ticket! They LOVE LOVE LOVE that I wear their clip and it really helped at the end of the year last year. That is also another idea from the original source.
Thanks for reading! Apple on!
