pickles and ketchups--On Fridays, place them on the board. Anyone who has turned in all of their assignments is a "pickle" so write their name under the pickle sign. Anyone who is missing an assignment has their name placed under the ketchup bottle. Pickles can "pick" a fun game or activity, while "ketchups" catch up on missing work. It is amazing how quickly assignments come in!
I saw this wonderful idea in pInterest. It caught my attention as a nice straightforward, stand alone solution to behavior management. I am very interested to know how you would use this in class. It looks a great idea, but I would like some input from someone who has used this successfully or indeed unsuccessfully.
At the beginning of every month, everyone starts off in the homework club. If they turn all their homework in on time, then they get to stay in the club! If they don't then they are out of the club. Students who turn all their homework in for the entire month get to come to the monthly homework club lunch.
Expected vs. Unexpected Behavior When Having A Problem The concept in this activity is adapted from the work of Michelle Garcia-Winner, SLP. It explicitly teaches the ever important concept of Expected vs. Unexpected behavior, this time, when you are having a problem. Children enjoy making this behavior chart and also discussing the scenario cards and doing role plays. Read the social story either before or after the lesson or as needed with individual students.
I fill this out first thing in the morning and change it throughout the day, works very well! Students have to complete the MUST DOs and then MAY DOs. Never again will you hear the question, "What do I do when I'm done?" Amazing :)
