    Tweaking the Three Star Method

    Lurker, I've been doing a lot of adjusting to the 3 Star Method myself lately. The younger grades just aren't getting with the program this year! When a 2nd grade class had lost all but one star by lunchtime, I bribed them with a short Arthur video at the end of the day if they buckled down and gave me full cooperation. It worked like a charm! I'm REALLY noticing excessive talking being more of a problem for students this year at ALL of the schools where I teach. I thought maybe it was just my methods, personality or something but the classroom teachers are noticing the same thing. Anyone else have any input about this in comparison to last year? I teach in primarily small rural elementary schools.
