I was so happy to see how having a word a day from our January Calendar had such an awesome response today. The word was "habits" I did a little demonstration on how to show bad habits and how to show good habits. The children laughed and we had a great discussion about good work habits. The best part was when students started showing me their examples of good habits.
"Look, Mrs. Beckner, I have finished my math and now I am reading." "I am showing good habits."
"I am working quietly."
"I am staying in my seat."
It is so great to see how focusing on a word for the day can have such a great response!
Please share what you do to get your students to show good work habits.
