I use the clip chart system. I changed the colors to go with my school wide system.
If you are not familiar check it out:
- My students are paid for green- top of the chart. They spend the money monthly at our class store.
- Students have to pay when they are on yellow-red.
Peace Meeting and Peace Jar
We only have 20 minutes after special and before the end of the day. We use 10 minutes for a daily peace meeting. We discuss problems (without using names) and discuss how to problem solve the situations. (USE YOUR WORDS!!!!) We also end with compliments.
We have a peace jar. We discuss how sometimes when you are upset that you will do something mean/ hurtful to that person or someone else. We have learned to write what is bothering you on a piece of paper and crumble it up. They place it in the jar and I throw all of the crumbled paper away on Friday to symbolize moving on. It sounds silly but it actually works for some students!
NEW ITEMS ADDED THIS YEAR!!!!
Accountability Buddy Chart- this is used for 1 of my kiddos.
Privilege Chart- 8 of my kiddos use this
A part of the privilege chart requires students to visit the reflection center:
lol... doesn't it look like "fun?"
Celebration Center- it isn't finished yet!!!!! (Wall coverings are not finished due to be sick!)
I was so inspired by Elizabeth from fun in room 4B to try something crafy for drawing winning numbers. (That must be one heck of an inspiration because I don't have an artistic bone in my body!)
I'm headed to bed again just to make sure that I get enough rest to be well enough to go back to work tomorrow!
