Behavior Tip of the Week:

As we near the end of the school year remember that relationships with our students are just as important as they were at the beginning of the year. Many students "check out" at the end of the year as they begin to focus on summer, while others "act out" because their worry of what summer may bring for them begins to grow. Remember the various student home lives and situations you manage each day as we prepare for the end of the year. Remember, that RELATIONSHIPS continue to be KEY.

This simple cartoon reminds us of the Do's and Don't of building positive student teacher relationships (

PRIM Strategy 11 ( gives us ideas for how to work with students who are having difficulty concentrating. Some suggestions include breaking down small tasks into more manageable chunks, following a less desirable task with a more desirable task or reward, and assessing yourself and the quality of your directions to be certain your expectations were clearly communicated.
