Last summer after reading about some great ideas from other teachers, I created and shared my Behavior to Roar About Catalog. It replaced my prize box this year *AMEN* and my firsties LOVED it. I loved it too, but as with anything, it needed a little *tweeking* to make it just right for what I needed. My problem this year was keeping up with who had earned their trip to the behavior catalog and when. My firsties have a behavior calendar in their homework folder that is color coded based on the day they had. BUT, it meant they or I had to count up their days. To earn a trip to the behavior catalog they had to have 8 good days (not consecutive, but all together). So.....this year after doing a little blog researching and my favorite Pinterest, I figured out what I am missing to make my life easier. I am going to use a punch card system this year and when students earn 8 punches, they can go to the behavior catalog. And let me say, the world stoppped in first grade when we went shopping in that catalog last year. Even though they usually knew what they wanted (stinky feet was always a favorite), they had to browse the catalog just to make sure. :-) I will be posting pics later today of the punch cards and they can be downloaded FREE. I also wanted to revamp some of my catalog, so it now has a new look with the adorable KPM Doodles clipart.
