We have started a new incentive for students who achieve ROLE MODEL status for the day! When a student ends the day on Role Model for going above and beyond expectations, they will receive a sticker for their chart. Once their chart is full, they can trade it in for a coupon for something fun! Some coupons include - choose from the treasure chest, sit in the teacher's chair for the day, write with a fancy pen all day, or bring a stuffed animal to school!
We are now practicing literacy centers independently! Woo! We have 4 centers that we visit each week - the library center, poetry center, writing center, and word work center. This gives us time to practice different literacy skills while also learning to be more independent! During this time Miss Petersen will start pulling students for reading testing and eventually start small guided reading groups!
We've been working hard for the past week to earn all the rocks from Miss P.'s jar! Rocks can only be earned when we are all working together to follow expectations! Many of the rocks came from compliments from other teachers in the hallways on how quiet we were! Our reward was an extra recess on this beautiful day! How perfect! Can you tell that we're just a little bit excited?! :)
