Positive Behavior

Too often, as teachers, we recognize and send home notes about bad behavior. At the end of last year, I started to send home notes about positive behavior. And now, I’m on to notes directly to my students about their positive behavior. This is what a sample of the notes I’m giving to ten of my students looks like today.

After all, it really isn’t easy to be green!

Henry K. and Rosemary Wong’s Book gave me the signal “Give me five!” when I want to get my students’ attention.
