Each student is given a button and an index card. It was fun to watch their volcanoes simmer down as I read this great book by Julia Cook. I arranged the sticky notes in a circle on a magnetic white board and put the following magnetic spinner in the middle. I reminded the students that although the green card is displayed,they should still raise their hands and wait until the teacher calls on them.

My Mouth is a Volcano Often students make poor choices in the words they decide to use with peers and adults. I never know how many students I will have for each lesson, so I tend to plan on 30 per group last year I never hit that number - in fact - never close.
If it landed on a behavior the student had to state a possible consequence. After students complete the workpage, we reconvene and share out. I chose a couple of ideas from the activity book to share with the class.
Beside the button they draw an up arrow in black. On the red side, the students would glue a button or a picture of a button to the left. What types of visual reminders do you use for classroom guidance?
