1. On Mondays we do a PBIS activity. This week my third graders were asked to think of a classmate that they could show more respect and consideration. They wrote about things they could do to show that person more respect. We then put everyone's slip of paper into a box that was visible in the room. Luckily a coop student I had years ago gave me this very appropriate box. I encouraged the students to look at the box each day and think of how they could be more respectful to their selected person.

4. My students need so many reminders to capitalize letters correctly! I decided to do an M&M challenge to encourage them to step it up with capitals. I gave them a bag of snack size M&Ms on Monday, and said I would be watching to see if they used capital letters correctly. If they didn't, I was going to record it, and on Friday they would have to give the same number of M&Ms back to me from their bag. They were all for it at the beginning of the week, but of course there were tears later in the week when I pointed out to some that they had forgotten capitals. They all seemed to be aware of proper use of capitals for most of the week, though!
5. Today we had a PBIS celebration. The students in our K-6 school were mixed, and went to different rooms for Minute-to-Win-It activities. The challenge in my room was to build a tower of paper plates and cups. The kids loved it, and our PBIS team did a great job with the organization of it all.
