PBIS or SEL Tip of the Week!
When a student is off task they are often seeking attention, so it is important for teachers to remove the stage when addressing them. Avoid using shame and intimidation to correct a student; instead quietly and quickly bend down and whisper to the student what you would like them to do and the consequence they will receive if the expectation is not met, then move away. If the student still does not comply, administer an appropriate consequence. Quiet corrections allow you to remain in control of the situation and keeps the public stage out of the student interaction.

First Semester PBIS Reward Party
Cav Time Corner
The upcoming Cavazos Family Bingo Night is coinciding with our Book Fair Week! Woo! We will get more info about the Bingo Night next week, but we want to encourage families who attend to take time to visit the book fair happening in the library. SO, here's where Cav Times come in: On Tuesday, you'll find several "pennants" in your box ready to be cut out and decorated. Have your Cav Time students decorate one pennant for, 1. each book they've finished, 2. a book/each book your Cav Time has read together, 3. the book they're currently reading.
The idea is to decorate the "path" between the cafeteria and library with these "pennants" from the ceiling! We need to have them finished by February 7th!
Get excited! It's going to be great!
Gimme 3... is meant to have you pause, reflect, and generate 3 ideas to the topic and share with someone.
