Improving Responsibility and Respectful

Wednesday we had a class meeting on how to make our class more responsible, fair, and respectful. It was interesting as the students nailed each of the three areas I was most concerned with: blurting out, not completely class jobs, and turning work in late. I asked the students what consequences they would suggest to keep everyone accountable. Let me just say we have some that feel pretty passionately about consequences, but we took votes:

This is the outcome:

Blurting out during lessons: 2 wisdom tickets

Undone class jobs (milk count, sharpening pencils,

erasing board, etc.): 10 tickets

If work is not turned in when due:

Work must be done during recess plus 5 wisdom tickets

If not completed by 2nd day, miss recess and 10 tickets

If not completed by 3rd day, no grade.
