Depending on the level you are working with, I find that kids can work with
Hyperstudio and there are even abbreviated copies you can get on disk (or
make from your master) that kids can take home and work through tutorials . I
let my GT kids work on this program in my elementary program and middle
school kids have been abler to do several things with it as well. Alice in

Our middle school has adopted a "3-strikes, you're out" discipline policy across the curriculum. We have discipline sheets typed up - I think there are 10 different items on the list, everything from talking out of turn, to forgetting supplies, to chewing gum in class, etc. Students pick up one of these when they walk in the door and place it in front of them. If they break a rule then the teacher can circle the appropriate infraction or have the student do it. If they break 3 rules in one class then they go sit in the office for the remainder of the class period. It seems kind of harsh, and yes, the office was pretty full at first, but there has been a noticible difference in our middle schoolers since.
