I posted a couple pictures yesterday on my Facebook page from our reward assembly. Some people asked about our assembly and what it entailed so I thought I would share with everyone here.
Our school has a quarterly behavior reward activity. At the beginning of each quarter, the teachers decide together what the requirements are for participation in the activity. For example, this quarter any student who had not received a detention was able to go to our rewards assembly. Students know these expectations from the beginning of the quarter. We do not always do something as big as an assembly. We have done smaller "game days" in the classroom for those who met the requirements as well.
Here are some of the activities we have done for school-wide behavior rewards:
Yesterday our assembly was just ah-mazing. I mean, I can't say enough about Zany Janie! She had a wonderful message in her show and the students just loved it. She spoke about how important it is to be yourself and try your best in school! It combined comedy, stories, magic tricks, and best of all balloons! Zany Janie and Mr. B Loon make the most fabulous creatures out of balloons. The students were just in awe watching them make things from as simple as a balloon animal dog to an extravagant monkey and banana tree.
Here are some fun pictures for the assembly:
There was another fun part when they pulled a student and a teacher on stage and taught them how to make a dog out of a balloon. Then the student had to help Zany make as many dogs as she could before a song was over.
If you are in the area, you should head over to Zany Janie's Facebook page and enter her giveaway for teachers. It ends tomorrow. You know I am entering! They will come into the winning teacher's classroom and teach the whole class how to make balloon animals!
Does your school do anything school-wide for behavior? I would love to hear about it. Please tell me in the comments below!
