In our classroom students and adults use a clip chart to help monitor class behavior. Each student begins the day in the middle of the chart on "Ready For A Challenge". Students move their individual clothespin up or down during the day depending on the choices they make.
+ 5 s = COUPON !!!!
When a student ends the day at the top of the chart the student earns a gem on their clip. When a student earns 5 gems they are able to select a class coupon of their choice. Below are each coupon students are able to select from.
Bubble Gum, Fuzzy Friend, Wear a Hat, Officer Walk Around, Read Aloud , Show & Tell, New Pencil, Drawing Time
Students who earn a Chew Gum coupon are able to bring gum into the classroom to chew for the day. If they leave the classroom for a bathroom break, lunch, special, or dismissal they must put the gum in the trash. They may chew a new piece of gum once they return to the classroom. I would encourage families to select sugar free gum for students.
1. Gum must stay inside your mouth.
2. No blowing bubbles
3. Gum must be disposed of in a garbage can.
Students may use this coupon to choose from a variety of fun new pencils.
This coupon allows students to join our Officer Joey on a walk around the school. The student who earns the coupon is allowed to invite one classroom friend to join them. Officer Joey is only in our building on Monday so students who select this coupon may need to wait for a few days to enjoy their reward.
Students who earn a Fuzzy Friend coupon may bring a stuffed animal into the classroom to have on their desk for a day. The stuffed animal must be small enough to fit on the student desk. The Fuzzy Friend is only allowed in the classroom, not aT PE or lunch. If the stuffed animal becomes a distraction from classwork it is moved to a nearby table or shelf to watch the student from a distance.
Students who use this coupon may wear a hat in school for one day.
A student may bring in an item to show and tell with the class. This item should be NON Living. Please help your child prepare to share information about the item they bring in. It would be best if the student rehearsed what they will share while at home with their family.
The student may bring in a book from home to read to our class. This should be a book the student is able to read independently and has practiced reading at home. If a chapter book is chosen one chapter that is a reasonable length may be read.
Students who have this coupon will be able to pass on a homework assignment for one night. This coupon should be turned into the teacher when it is used.
Students are allowed to spend 15 minutes of their Typing Agent or ST Math class time to color or draw at their desk.
