In my classroom I use many different forms of positive reinforcement. For classroom management I use Class Dojo, and reward students for the points they earn. If students receive an 80% or higher for the week they earn the right to buy ice cream on Fridays. Sometimes this may change depending on if ice cream has been delivered, or we run out early. During the hot months there is usually an ice cream shortage! If that is the case we will reward with popcorn popped by our very own Ms. Gigi.
Classroom expectations are simple: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe. We say please, thank you, sir, and ma'am. We allow others to learn, keep our hands and unkind words to ourselves. We are nice, welcoming, and friendly to everyone. We work hard everyday to reach our goals, and try to be a better person than we were the day before.
