So, again, I admit I am struggling with the Super Improver Wall. I did work on adding specific goals (one academic and one behavior) for each student. Today, I am blaming not being consistent with the fact that I only have 50 minutes per day with these students. It is hard to focus on individuals (that's terrible to say) when I have so much to teach and complete. I am going to try to do better, and I will not give up! The wall does work! Even as I write this post, a student asked if she could help me move several students cards to the next level because they had earned enough stars. She is helping me, and I gave her a star for "keeping me on track with the wall."
On a positive note, my own son, a 7 year old, whispered in my ear and said this to me at home several nights ago, "Mom, can you start me a wall like the one you have at school?" I have printed the cards and have it ready to go. He as already earned 3 stars. WAY TO GO, EAN!
I have set up a blog through blogger.com for my classroom. It's gonna be 'a little bit of this, and a little bit of that,' but I want one focus to be my WBT journey. My plan is to copy and paste a great deal of my online posts from this workshop because we have definitely been learning, and it has all be a journey. If you have not thought about earning WBT Certification or had no clue this even existed, I encourage you to visit their website at wholebrainteaching.com to find out more. I am so excited to about earning WBT Certification.
