  GO FOR GREEN!

  We have a behavior modification system that I call “Go for Green.”  It is based on a traffic light design with everyone starting on green each day.  If I have to give several warnings to a student for misbehavior, then I will ask them to change their card to yellow (CAUTION).  If there are more problems, they will be asked to move their name to red (STOP).  It this occurs, the student will receive a note or a call home that day. This sysyem also ties in with our new "Fun Friday" incentive. smiley
