I'm required to keep a "Catch 'Em Being Good Notebook," but I always wondered why it was called that when it's mostly for documenting "bad" behaviors. So this year I'm going to keep two separate binders- one (which will not be in plain view) will be for undesirable behavior and one (which will remain open and up front) for terrific behavior!
The first page of this file is headed, "You CAN do better next time!" It lists three steps for making better choices next time and includes a place for the child to write in their number, what they did, and what they plan to do next time. There is a space for the date at the top of the page so that you can just switch pages each day and have all the day's behaviors listed together for easy reference when recording weekly behavior reports.
The second page of the file is headed, "You were caught being good! Thank you for being respectful, responsible, and reliable! It includes a place for the child to write his number, what he did, and a reward he chose.
The final page is simply a list of possible rewards. I plan to cut these apart and allow the kids to choose one randomly.
The actual file is EDITABLE so you can change anything you like =)
I believe this is useful to all elementary grades (although K will require help).
