Classroom Management:
Sticker Chart- Individualized behavior approach, where students have to fill their sticker chart (20 stickers) before receiving a prize. A student can receive stickers if he or she is participating , paying attention, being kind to one another, or helping!
Marbles in the Jar- Whole group behavior management, if the entire class is working well, participating, or walking silently in the hallway, marbles will be added to the jar. If the entire class is misbehaving, marbles will be removed from the jar.
Star Chart- every student starts out with 3 stars everyday, a star can be taken away if the student is being disruptive, calling out, or playing. However, the star can be earned back if the student changes their behavior in a positive way. At the end of the week, if a student has had all three stars he/she will pick from the prize box. 

Peanut and nut free table in the cafeteria- if your child has this allergy he or she may sit at this table during lunch. Please be advised it is not mandatory that your child sit here but they do have the option. If you would like your child to sit at this table let your child's teacher know. If you have any questions please email me. Thank you
