Classroom management is not always easy. If you are feeling tired of catching bad behavior, and stressed out about speaking to parents about problems their children are having, here is a solution to expensive or cumbersome systems of behavior incentives. Catch a child being good! This "happy note" can be sent home to one child per day. It gives children something to strive for, and it helps build rapport with parents who get nervous about how teachers perceive their children.
Tips for the selection process are included in the document. There are 2 notes on one sheet to help save paper when you’re copying. Consider copying these notes on colored card stock.
This incentive was created in response to the following request:
"Hi! I am looking for a template to use to send notes to parents. Somewhere I read about a teacher who picks one student a day to write a "good news" type of note about. The note goes home with that student that day. The idea is to let parents know good things that their student is doing. This helps to develop rapport and support from the parent. I'd like a template that could easily be typed into to make a card. I'd also love some suggested phrases for the notes to help make this a quick daily task. Thanks!"
