I have just finished working with 2 small groups of boys between 3rd and 5th grade. These students were chosen by having the most referrals in our school. These boys are spontaneous, active, and work well with incentives to complete their work. I made a "deal" with them that if they do not get any referrals and participate each week in group, then at the end of the 6 weeks, I will bring in my sneakers and we will play whatever sport they want to outside during our group time (30 minutes). This "deal" worked very well! These boys used strategies we talked about in group to stay out of the office and stayed in the classroom! Below is a picture of our ideas (Rules!) that we wanted to use in group. The bottom poster shares how each one of us is different and unique.
