I know that your child has many positive qualities to add to our classroom, and I wish to make the classroom a place where students are an active part of a caring community. We will spend time on the first day of school working together as a class to put together our classroom rules. We will focus on being kind, safe, and respectful.
I use a postive behavior management system in our classroom. Students earn a ticket for every day that they follow the rules. There are many opportunities to earn extra tickets each day for being an example to others in following the rules. When students have earned 10 tickets, they can trade them in for a prize from the treasure box.
