Meet Quentin the Quality Penguin. He is our class mascot, and helps my kiddos to be quality students. They take turns taking him home in a bag with a journal, so they can write about his time with them at home. The students will read the journal during our carpet time. They have to be a quality student in order to be able to take him home. He has really helped the behavior of my students.
My kiddos just love Quentin! They even give him little gifts from home. One little gal made him a belt and one little guy gave him the scarf during the winter because he didn't want Quentin to be cold:)
I also use Quentin during our class meetings. The students pass him around as we discuss "What Quality Students are" We usually listen and sing this song first. It helps my kiddos to remember what a quality student is. You can get the song in our store for a dollar.
We also sing this song about not being a bully. Quentin raps about bully prevention.
I use these Quentin dollars for good behavior. My kiddos love earning them and using them in our class store. They are a free download at our store:
We also have a book about Quentin's first day of school and how his mom teaches him the Quality Student song.
We have several products with Quentin in them. If ya'll are interested in checking any of them out, just go to our store and look under Custom Categories under Quentin the Quality Penguin.
I use Quentin to welcome my new First Graders. I take their pictures and put them on the ice floes. They get so excited to see the real one in my class when I show him to them.
We are giving a Quentin away for the Teacher Giveaway. It will just be the penguin. The clothes aren't included. We bought the clothes, hat and shoes at Build-A-Bear.
We will be selling Quentin puppets soon. If you're interested, you can follow us so you will know when they are available:)
