Today was exceptionally sweet! Here's why...
So~ we have been talking about being safe, showing kindness, making good choices, etc...
Today I introduced the SHOUT OUT!
This went over like gang busters...
Here's how it works:
Step 1- Notice someone showing kindness, helping out others, making good choices, being responsible, being respectful, and so forth.
Step 2- Fill out a shout out form & place it in the shout out container.
Step 3- Mrs. Elliott chooses random shout out's at the end of the day & reads them in front of the.entire.class!!
My container was FULL today!
My sweet friend, Kim made these shout out forms & they worked like a charm.
Here is a shout out for a student that was reading & being quiet. Doesn't seem like a big deal but for this student it was HUGE.
Here is a sweet one where a student noticed another student helping to pick up crayons that someone else had dropped.
I could've posted so many more! They were super into noticing positivity. It changed the whole mood in my classroom & they were so happy to write the shout outs.
It was too cute!
You definitely do NOT have to be a Conscious Discipline classroom to implement this. If you want to add some positive reinforcement and compassion to your class this would do the trick!
Just because you stuck around this long here is a freebie from my sweet friend Kim of the shout out forms that you are more than welcome to use in your class!
