PBIS School Ideas
draw your attention to POSITIVE behavior! As chaos ensues within the classroom (and by chaos I mean anything from "getting a little chatty" to "full on riots"), I look for someone who is doing the right thing. And then... DING! I whack my little bell and the room comes to a screeching halt.

LOVE THIS!!! This teacher holds a "reading raffle" and students enter their tickets in the bins with the book they most want to win. :} Tickets earned through behavior and responsibility... Hold the raffle once a month...
Delicious Donuts This printable donut bag is a darling way to present a tasty treat! It also makes for a fabulous, but inexpensive way to show appreciation if your child is in middle school, and youre thanking more than one teacher!

*For my Teacher friends ** Very cool parent reminder. They sign up online, you fill out online, they get a text. You never have to know their numbers, they never have to know yours! Genius!
