- Simplify. As in--remove any distractions. So my neat storage in the group desks
- Minimize. Three groups into four. Less kids might lead to less ability to be distracted.
- Prioritize from negatives to positives.
Next week we are going to work a little more on behavior with David Shannon books. Thanks to this, I am ready to talk about our Peacemakers vs Peacebreakers. The First Grade Parade blog (Cara) shared this the other day and I love the idea. The kids love the books and our school district calls no bullying EPIC. Great idea from another great blog!
