Re: Can't seem to keep it together


Date: Thu Apr 26 2001 - 20:28:20 PDT

I decided to have the kids earn a free choice day to keep them focused this
last six weeks. Just third, fourth and fifth. They have to earn 10 smiley
face stickers on their seating chart and I'll give them a free day and t
reats. They've like it so much, I'm going to continue it next year. They
come in asking how many they have and how many they have to earn. Since time
is short and I only see them once a week, they have to be "good" They earn
one for working quietly and remembering to raise their hand (in other works,
not following me around the room with questions) one for staying on task (not
wandering around and doing thier work as directed) and one for cleaning up as
directed. Has been effective so far. JH
