The one thing that has made this year difficult for me is all of the behavior issues in my classroom! I came home from school feeling burnt out and frustrated most days and didn't have the control of my classroom that I needed to have. So I decided to switch up my behavior plan a little bit. I will not bore you with the details... just ask me if you want to know about it. But I will show you the cute thing I made that has made a huge difference. The goal is to have sunny days in first grade. I have made a huge deal out of it and kids are trying to remind each other to make good choices so we can all be on the sun! It is great.
Special thanks to Sheri my step-mom and fellow first grade teacher for sharing the idea. It has helped so much!
