Take it away. Example from today: using individual dry erase boards/markers/eraser on the rug to work on problems with the teacher. Student A decides to draw instead of following along with the teacher. That student has to put the materials back and can’t use them for the rest of the day.

Yes! A good method is a good method. I’m in K!

My kids completely wasted a huge box of glue sticks. We had several family meetings about it, I did demonstrations about how to take care of them, they still didn’t mend their ways. Now they’re down to five glue sticks for the entire class to share. I reminded them that I had warned them of this and still they had chosen to waste them. I showed them my glue stick that I’ve been using all year and again demonstrated how I take care of it. A couple kids asked me if their families could buy us some more, and I told them there was no point in me asking for more if they’re just going to waste them, so I won’t put it in my weekly newsletter unless they show me they’ve changed their ways. I think those are now the five most coddled glue sticks in the country.😁

I hold a class meeting. I share the problem and let the students make suggestions on how to solve it (of course you can veto something if it doesn’t work for you). I draw/write the solution and post it near where those materials are kept. We review it everyday until things are back in order.

Take them away. Let them know they were not using the materials respectfully/safely/etc. and that they’ll have to show me I can trust them to use them the right way before I give them back.

Hello everyone! This is my first time posting since joining this platform. I’m interested in connecting with someone who is open to HR mentoring.

Even if it’s for feedback, I would really appreciate it. Thank you!
