Day 10

Can you believe we have finished ten days of school already?  Students in Room 102 are doing a great job of being kind to each other and following directions from teachers!  This week, Ms. Trahan and I introduced and began using tickets and a ticket jar.  The goal is to fill the jar with tickets so we can plan a special classroom reward.  I presented the students with three choices of activities and they voted for their favorite.  "Flashlight Friday" was the winner!  I will send home more information about this special day soon. In the mean time students will continue following directions and being kind to each other to earn tickets as a class.  We will introduce another component of this classroom system next week which involves earning prizes!  The purpose of the classroom reward system is to create positive feelings towards making appropriate, safe, and kind decisions.

At the end of the day on Friday Ms. Zanotti gathered all of the kindergarten students and introduced Pine Glen's school wide reward system.  Hoot the owl is our school mascot and will be keeping an eye on the whole school!  Appropriate, safe and kind behavior is what we are encouraging throughout our school!
