*I will add pictures soon to show this product in action.*
You can find this tool at my TPT store, it its titled Steps to Success or by clicking here. Simply it is a tool that allows me to praise the good behavior, work, and manners of my students. I will at random moments throughout the day ask students to "take a step" for positive behaviors. As they take a step their whole demeanor changes. They begin to stand a little taller and smile a little more. This rubs off on others and soon, multiple students are being praised. I LOVE IT! At the end of each day we graph our progress. This graph is also in my TPT product. This gives my students a sense of responsibility as they are required to chart where they have made it behaviorally and why. At the end of the week we reflect and self assess, before I check and send them home to parents. This new tool has by far been my favorite for classroom management. It has been very useful and highly successful this year. (please note I have a group of very behaviorally needy students this year) Please do not be afraid to try this regardless of your behavioral makeup! ENJOY.
