GREAT choice wheel for settling their own disputes!

Conflict Resolution

I like this traffic light behaviour management chart because it helps students with self-regulation. When children are misbehaving or make a bad choice, they will move their peg down a level. They will also have the chance to move up a level if their behaviour improves during the day. At the end of the day, they could colour in a face in their agenda to go home, which also communicates with parents the kind of day that their child had at school.

Become an Organized Teacher with 3 Simple Binders

LOVE this idea! It can be soooo time consuming to answer the questions...Can we use markers?, Do we turn this in?, Is this a talking activity? I love using these assignment choice signs to answer those questions without me doing the work. Once I give directions for an activity, I quickly place checks and X's by the cards and my students know exactly where to look for the answer.

The many pieces of me

Two students (rotated weekly) get to wear these hats during centers, when the teacher is working with small groups. If they can't answer the question, then only these students may come to the teacher. Sort of a play on "ask three, then me"
