I am a bit tardy to the party for Positive Thinking Thursday, but am still excited about it and I wanted to wrap up my week so here I am and I hope you'll indulge me. :)
I found this on author Patricia Polacco's Facebook Page:
"Believe you can and you're half way there" - Theodore Roosevelt.
I found a new way to keep track of my students' behavior points - links on a chain! At the end of the period, if they have 8 or 9 out of 10 points, they can earn 1 brag buck (to be spent in the school cafeteria) or 1 link. They can save up their links for various rewards they picked, such as lunch in the classroom. They love seeing their links on the wall!
Next week starts our state testing and I have to move rooms so I am packing my essentials. I hope I don't forget anything...I so wish I had one of those crate carts now!
We wrapped up figurative language with a game of ZAP and then a test. The test mirrors the style of questions they will see on the state test so fingers crossed that they will do well on both!!
And now for something fairly random but a highlight of my week: I received this note in my lunchbox from my son yesterday....
