there is a little man in my kindergarten class that so far has proven to be quite a challenge, but i have decided to put my whole heart into this situation and help him to love school, to become successful and not to be NAUGHTY! and today was super!! i started with a little talk with him this morning about what he got for Christmas, what he wants to be when he grows up,then continued through the day with a ridicules amount of praise every time he was on task, it was really over kill but it worked.
the best part was when i walked him out to his mother. everyday she asks me how he was, i try to keep it positive but some days it's hard (the days he swears in my classroom, or runs across the top of the tables, or hits other kids). anyhow today i said "he was great" wow! his mom gave me this are you serious look! i said "yeah he was really good, he worked well, and followed directions!" he had the biggest smile on his face. then his mom obviously please told him he gets to pick what was for dinner and with the biggest smile he requested "PIZZA" it was so cool i want another day like this one with him tomorrow

That's AWESOME!! I should try that more often with my kids. Abby has given me quite a hard time this year.
