Parents of 1st and 2nd Graders:
Thank you so much for being my partner during this crazy time! Below you'll find proposed schedules and choice boards for each grade.
Please stay in touch and let me know how I can best support you.
This is a home version of our classroom motivational and behavior system. It creates an opportunity to work together as a family to shine a light on behaviors that we want to see and celebrate getting a little better at something every day. Your student probably knows exactly where they were when we started this journey, and they can pick up right where they left off! One of my favorite things this year was setting goals for myself and asking the class to help me reach them. In our class, the magic happened when I avoided giving energy to behaviors we wanted to avoid and explicitly explained and then celebrated behaviors we wanted to see!
Some ideas to earn stars: Doing chores that day without being asked, completing 15-20 minutes of focused work time, showing glorious kindess to someone, doing a positive behavior a certain number of times (5 compliments) that day.
When your child "levels up", celebrate! Do a little dance! Sing a little song! Show incredible pride! It will make their day and make them want more. :)
If you'd like a printed version, let me know and I'll mail them to you.
