October PAWS-itive Reward Days

While the younger students were going on a bear hunt and the upper grades were enjoying their read-aloud novels, some classes earned a free day thanks to their PAWS-itive behavior: practicing safety, acting responsibly, working to learn and showing respect.  After demonstrating appropriate behavior for several weeks, individual classes who earned a reward brainstormed a list of appropriate alternatives to our traditional library routine, and the class voted on their rewards. Some of their options were putting on a theatrical rendition of a picture book, building a marble run, doing engineering projects, browsing back issues of magazines, working with circuits, and Legos! We had an amazingly diverse and educational week, all while having fun!

I think the students will think twice before they misbehave from now on.  They’re not going to want to miss out on these awesome PAWS-itive days after this!
