Apparently, she has found great joy in running in the halls of school, much to the dismay of the teachers.
She has been warned.
She has been forced to hold one of their hands as the class walked down the hall. (I was told that she did not like this one bit!).
She has lost library privileges.
And she has had multiple notes sent home from school regarding this behavior.
The funny thing is that she snitches on herself!
"Running in school today!" she tells me.
Thanks for being honest, honey.
We have had talks at home about this behavior.
We typically have pep-talks in the car on the way to school.
"You will not run in the hallways today, right Kaitlyn?" I say.
"No running!" says Kaitlyn, as she skips into school with the teacher.
And after school, it is the same ole same ole.
More running in the halls.
However, Kaitlyn LOVES rewards.
And the staff knows this!
So they have come up with a social story and reward program for her good behavior (translation: no running in the halls).
With the use of Boardmaker, they have put together a "sight word" story as seen below:
And this is what came home from school today:
Seems like this reward program is working!
