Reflection: Positive Reinforcement Biography Research: Research, Reading, and Notes (Day 4 of 11) - Section 5: Share, Review, and Celebrate!


If you've seen my other lessons, you'll notice that we do a lot of celebrating big and small!  I think it's important to remind myself that my students are learning and growing every day.  They are usually giving me 110% and need to be recognized to keep them going.  We have little celebrations that we share, such as high tens (instead of high fives), rounds of applause (clapping your hands in a circle), standing O's (stand up and make the letter O with your arms), in addition to many others to recognize accomplishments of individuals and the class.  All of these help contribute to our classroom community, student effort, and overall learning.

  Daily Celebrations!
