What a year, so many sad events. My heart goes out to those affected by the storms and tornadoes in Oklahoma.
It has been a long day, but I am linking up with Holly at Fourth Grade Flipper for her Tried it Tuesday linky.
I have to admit, with the end of the school year only a few short weeks away I'm just trying to "push" my kiddos along as we try to wrap up our last few major projects. We are working on a lot of group projects right now and one of my boys has struggled this year with getting along with his classmates and other adults. He is a good kid, but he is very stubborn and argumentative. I honestly don't think he means to be disrespectful to others but he just can't help himself.
To try to help him with this his parents and I have started using a behavior checklist that I created. I fill it out each day, and then put it in his assignment book. He and I talk as situations come up during the day. So he has a pretty good idea about how he scored for the day before he even gets his report. His parents have consequences at home based on the report-while I have my consequences at school. It took him a little while, but I really think he is starting to improve. He is learning when it is time to stop and listen and when he should stand his ground.
here. What do you use to help your kiddos that need a little more monitoring than others?
