Behavoir

  Reflection

Many teachers use pizza parties and candy to reward their students. However with the growing child obesity problem we as educators need to find new ways to have positive reinforcement. In the past few weeks I have been working with a student in my classrom where I student teach who has serious behavior issues. We found that nothing seems to motivate him to follow the rules or to participate. We were using a school wide reward system. After a while we noticed that some of the children were aware of the probability of them actually winning a prize. He was one of those students. Instead of participating in a the school wide reward system, we decided to create a smaller version just for the class! This helped turn around many of his peers but the student was still resistant. After talking to student my mentor teacher and I noticed he needed a more individualized behavior system. We decided to reward for every 10 tickets he received. For some reason he saw this as a challenge that he was determined to pass. I am slowly learning that sometimes when it comes to dealing with behavior it comes down to what makes each child tick and learning what they are dealing with at home. Teachers need to take the time to understand where our students are comming from in order to get them where we want them to go emotionally.
