I have posted before about my "Secret Student" before but I am posting about it again to include in in What the Teacher Wants Behavior Management Linky Party! Get over there and get yourself some good ideas! These last few weeks have been hectic and crazy. The kids in my class have been real troopers through it all. We went from three first grades to two first grades after the first two days of school. Yeah, that was interesting to say the least and I think we are all finally getting into the groove of things! We added some more friends, moved some tables around and crammed ourselves in nice and cozy!

I also have a "Secret Student." Each morning before the kids come in I fill out one of these by writing a student's name on the line:
Then I stick it in a magnetic container and put it at the top of the board. There is also a little glitter in there for good measure.
At the end of the day, I get it out and pull out the name. If that student had a good day, they get to keep the note to take home to mom and dad. They also get something out of my little prize box. If the student didn't have such a good day, I don't call them out. I just put it in my pocket and explain that whoever it was didn't have a very good day and maybe they will have a better day tomorrow.
The kids LOVE the Secret Student. They always remind me at the end of the day. All I have to say throughout the day is "I need to check on my Secret Student." You can only imagine how that gets pencils moving, lines straighter, voices off....
