Positive Interventions and Effective Strategies: Three Tiered Strategies Utilizing Cost Benefit Systems Effectively and Appropriately Celebrate Success for OTISS- Round Robin
Universal Support for the Classroom What can you do to get the biggest bang for your buck and decrease the most minor infractions that occur in the classroom?
Greeting Nine Minutes That Have the Greatest Impact First three minutes of a child’s day First three minutes when they get home from school Last three minutes before they go to sleep
Conveyance First three minutes of class time and last three minutes of class time Entrance Exit In a study by Allday and Pakurar (2007) measured teacher greetings on middle school students and found an increase in on-task behavior from 45% to 72% when teachers greeted students at the door at the beginning of the hour.
Greeting Students T ouch them U se name positively M ake eye contact S mile
We stopped touching kids High five Hand shake Pinkie bump Low five Elbow bump Implosion/explosion
Wish I was in trouble more, then you’d know my name. Hi Cutie! Use their name (positively)
Make Eye Contact
Decreased Face Time
Smile Every time you smile it is the equivalent of 1 bar of high quality chocolate. When you smile at someone, it engages mirror neurons- much like when someone yawns. It is almost impossible to not smile back when someone smiles at you. Researchers found the size of your smile not only dictates how successful you will be, it predicts how long you will live.

EXIT STRATEGY E very student X amines I ntelligence gained T icket
Cut two slits in lid of shoebox. Cut four holes in side of shoe box. Slide pencil into first hole and thread adding machine tape on it on the right side of the box. Push pencil the rest of the way through. Push pencil on right side of the box holes all the way through. Pull adding machine tape up through left slit and over an down through right slit. Tape adding machine tape onto right side pencil. Close box lid and duct tape the lid to the box. Tighten up the tape. Each day, have the students write what they learned and then scroll the tape forward on the right. At the end of the year, they will have a diorama journal of their entire year of learning.
Targeted Group Strategy for the Classroom Minor disruptions- What works once the kids are in the classroom?
Group Contingencies = Group Reinforcements Every successful individual knows that his or her achievement depends on a community of persons working together. Paul Ryan
We have to make it more fun to do the right behavior……. My doctor:
Caveats Daily Weekly Monthly
Monthly 2 jars- one w/lights & one w/out
Choosing Reinforcements Build Social Capital for students with low self-esteem BILLYBILLY Hidden inside can
Make your own scratch-off prizes Two parts model paint to one part dishwashing detergent. Here’s my suggestion- On tag board make your bubble letters and then write a prize in each bubble letter. Laminate the tag board. Then paint over the laminated letters. This way you can reuse it year after year. Otherwise, the student will scratch too hard and you won’t be able to use it again.
Label Noodles “A” and “B” – put prizes on board for “A” and “B” and then choose two students to start marbles on command. Class gets prize of whichever marble makes it first.
Write prizes on a CD- choose student to spin. Spin the wheel
Patience is not a virtue. It is a choice! (Riffel, ) –I aspire to be more patient with the students today.
