Recognize students for their good behavior
Every morning we started the day with our Room 12 Pledge. It was a team-building activity and helped to reinforce our commitment to being a happier, more productive classroom.
The pledge goes like this:
"As a member of Room 12, I pledge to:
Respect myself by making good choices,
Respect my classmates
by treating them kindly, and
Take responsibility for my actions."

From the pledge, I created an emblem and had a stamp made. It was stamped on letters that went home, book marks, class awards, student bulletins, and a dozen other items.
Using this stamp was just another way that I could keep my focus on the positive.
Teacher Tip: A teacher told me that her 3 R's are "Respectful, Responsible, Resourceful." Very nice.
