Making good choices!

I really hope your child came home yesterday excited to show you their certificates for making green and blue choices in the classroom!  I really like “rewarding” students for making good choices in the classroom.  It keeps me focused on finding the good as opposed to drawing attention to poor choices being made in the classroom.  I also hope that when they show you these certificates, which say: “J’ai fait un bon choix.” (which means “I made a good choice.”) that you will ask them how they earned it!  I really hope that students can learn to feel proud of their good choices and be rewarded intrinsically by these good feelings rather than by stickers or other prizes.  IMG_20141029_152809~2
