In our class, we use a variety of resources to help us ROAR each day.
We use golden tickets to reward positive behavior.At the end of the week we do prize box. If you have at least one golden ticket at the end of week you get to pick a prize. If you have five golden tickets you get to pick a prize and get a ROAR ticket.
Roar Tickets can be used for our weekly school drawing or you can hold onto them and turn them in for fun days like ( stuff animal day, wear sunglasses, play with legos for 10 minutes)
Students that are not following ROAR are given Think Sheets after being given 3 warnings .
