Let me start by saying that my thoughts are with the families in Oklahoma.
I can't even begin to imagine what they are going through right now.
I feel so lucky and grateful for all that I have.
On a completely different note,
I'm linking up with Holly from Fourth Grade Flipper
for her weekly
Last week I tried a new behavior incentive that I read on another blog.
During each transition period, I would time the kids.
At the end of the day, we needed to add up all the lost time.
If it was less than the day before, everyone would get five minutes of game time.
It sounded great!
My kids love competition and playing games.
It would be a fun way to end the school year.
I knew it would work.
Here are the problems.
1. I don't always remember to time the kids.
2. In the six days we have been doing it, they only beat their score once.
3. The kids are starting to nag each other when I am timing them.
I keep hearing, "Johnny, come on!!"
We have had to remind each other about giving kind reminders.
So, I don't know if I'm going to keep going with this plan.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
