Have you ever seen these:
Well, let me introduce you:
blog reader meet your new best friend. :)
These little markers are my sanity saver! Here's what you do:
1. Go buy you a pack (or 16) of these Crayola Color Changer Markers.
2. Make a table in word with as many rows and columns as your little heard desires.
3. Draw a star with the "magic" clear side of the marker in as many of those little squares on your table as you want.
4. Post in your room.
Bribe Remind kids to behave... when they do, they get a "chance to find a star!"
Easy as that!
If they are good, they go to my little school box of color changer markers. They pick out their fav color, and color in a square. If they find a star, they get a treat... mine is a trip to the teasure box. Yours could be a sticker? a stamp? extra center time? line leader? the list goes on!
So, there is my little trick of how I get my Kinders to behave for me! :)
Easy, cheap, and it works!!!!!
So, here's my question:
What do you do in your classroom to control behavior?
