I would like to add to our reward system in our classroom:  We have students in our classroom that rarely get in trouble at all, and I feel that this behavior needs to be rewarded!   Starting Monday, each child will get 5 movie tickets per week (1 per day) for a month.  If a child receives more than 4 blocks a day, he/she will have to give up their ticket for that day.  At the end, of 4 weeks there will be a reward movie for tickets as follows:
10-11 tickets: Movie
12-15 tickets- Movie and drink
16-17 tickets- Movie, drink, and popcorn
18-20 tickets-Movie, drink, popcorn, and a small prize

We have raised the standards for our behavior charts!  If a student is talking out of turn and/ or disrupting class, it is now two blocks rather than one.  This is a problem in our class that we really need to work on.  We have already been working on this for a couple of days.  Also starting this week, if your child has more than four blocks filled in on  3 or more days, they will not get in the treasure box on Friday.    

Our class will be leading chapel on September 27.  We will lead pledges and sing a song that day.  The song is called Rainbow.  I would like for the children to wear different colored shirts.

Math Facts:  I would like for students to review Math Facts nightly at home.  Next week we will do Sums of Ten!  The students will have a pumpkin with all sums of 10 on them.  This will help them be able to orally give these sums quicker!
