A co-worker shared with me a stop sign to make better choices and this served as a catalyst for me to modify the stop sign to say choose and to create two additional signs. I am big on holding my learners responsible. They read the quote “A bad attitude is like a flat tire, YOU cannot go anywhere until YOU change it. They know the choice is always theirs. So often, educators spend a great deal of time focusing their attention on students who do not behave appropriately, that we forget to recognize the students who choose to behave appropriately. With that being said, I created a card that recognizes students who choose positive behavior as well as a warning card. This is an awesome tool. I simply slide the card on their desk and continue with instruction. This prevents me from having to stop in the middle of instruction to verbally reprimand students for being disruptive. It also serves as something tangible that indicates good or poor behavior for students and has a positive effect. Students do not like having the red sign or yellow on their desk, especially when their peers have the green. When leadership or a visitor comes by the card on the desk speaks for me about their behavior; I do not have to say a word. Also, just because you give a student a green card does not mean it cannot be replaced with another card so make sure they are aware. FYI: Have them laminated!
