CICO CELEBRATIONS AND REMINDERS
-1 student moved to verbal.
When filling out CICO sheets, the goal of the time with the child is to talk about his/her behavior, NOT the points they aren't getting. Please state the negative behavior, explain how it can be changed to a positive behavior for next time and then end on a positive note! Setting goals with your students can help them buy in to the intervention. Talk with your students about which behavior they want to focus on for the day and praise them when they have met their goals. You could even reward them by calling home to their parent, providing a high five, acknowledging their accomplishment with the class, or giving them an additional Leo buck.
Classroom Ideas and Quotes
- Looking for ways to refresh PBIS with your students? One way is to include it in your curriculum. Students could write about how to be safe, respectful, and responsible in their school. This way, they get a refresher AND can become more aware of their safe, respectful, and responsible actions! Thank you Mrs. O'Brien for the awesome idea!
