How do I get a check mark?
- For each period, I am allowed to get one check mark.
- I can get this by listening to the teacher.
- Following the teacher’s instruction.
- Staying in my seat, and doing my work.
- Asking for help if I need help or support.
- Asking for a mini break if I get too anxious or tired.
- Asking questions about the topic of discussion.
- Being respectful of my peers by working quietly, not touching others, and keeping my hands to myself.
WHAT ARE THE CHECK MARKS FOR?
- Each check mark earned, allows me 5 minutes of CHOICE TIME or preferred activity, alone, or with only another person from class who also would like to play with me after snack.
- I cannot switch activities. Whatever activity I picked initially will be my activity for the rest of the 15 minutes.
- If I get 3 check marks, I will have 15 minutes of playtime, and if the whole class is playing safely and respectfully, the teacher may even give us a bonus of 5 more minutes to play.
WHEN DO I GET AN “ X”?
- I have three chances to right a wrong, before the teacher gives me an X.
- If I get an “X” I will lose 5 minutes of choice activity time.
- If I got an X for not doing my work, then I will do my work during that 5 minutes of choice time.
