|Bodie, graphing how many hearts of each color he has.|
|Here is Brylee sorting sweethearts onto the right color of heart.|
|She liked this heart pattern matching game.|
This game had pictures of hearts with a certain vowel on it. Bodie sorted the words onto the heart with the matching vowel sound.
The next game we did was kind of like Cooties. We had the two hearts glued on paper. Then you roll the dice and look at your sheet to determine what bug part to draw.. They liked it so much we had to do more than love bug.
Things that are working for us: I am doing a combination of things to work on behavior issues. I have a jar for tickets. The deal is that when they get fourteen tickets they get to do something special with mama or daddy. These tickets are harder to earn. I reserve them for things we are really having issues with. I also take tickets for being disruptive in class, whining, argueing, and other things. I want those fourteen tickets to be something they really have to work for! We have a sticker chart for smaller goals. I am more generous with these and they can't be taken away. Once they get five stickers they get a choice between things in the prize box or .50 cents. I am always keeping this stocked with bargins I find in the dollar section.
Questions I have: Still looking for creative ideas to deal with sibling fights. Any ideas?
