Ms Maggie Mo's classroom management: behaviors are described in "do" terms (not "don't"): "In art class I promise I will listen to directions..." (or "work instead of talking", "stay in my seat & raise my hand" "respect my classmates" "use art materials safely"...) Student gets blue card as a reminder, then If behavior improves, student rips card up! If behavior persists, signs card, staples in planner. Quick, easy to use, MUCH better than "here's what I did wrong."
