Re: Middle School discipline problems

I like this idea - puts it all on them plus it gives them some peer pressure
to be responsible. I had a paint pallet left out the other day with 4
brushes left neatly on top full of paint. I taped them all to the wall and
posted the prices of each, plus shipping. I pointed out that the total cost
came to more than their art fees for the entire year. 5 students came up and
told me exactly who did it. I haven't had any more problems with wasted
supplies. So far that is...... :-)
