    Clip to ScrapBook
    I've posted alot of stuff and ask alot of questions. Behavior board each child gets a monkey with there name on it. Laminated and put velcro on monkeys hand laminate colored bananas to go on monkey's hand as well as monkey.
    Green banana-good behavior/reward
    Yellow banana-warning/no reward
    Blue banana-lose privileges/no reward
    Red banana-teacher call parent for conf./no reward
    At the end of each week if they keep a green banana they go to treasure box on friday last period of the day. BB is Titled "No Monkey Business In Ms. Magarelli's Room"
    I will also give out Banana bucks during cooperative group work for students that show good listening and working skills. They can be redeemed once a month at the "Jungle Junction Store" for example: 5 banana bucks-HW Pass etc...
    Front Door of Classroom: "Survivor 3rd Grade This Years Contestants Are".... Each child will create a profile about themselves and we'll take a picture to attach on each profile and place on front door.
    Students sit in grps. of 4 in my class each group or table will create their own tribe name and flag (this is also a first week activity).
    for example: The Jaguar Tribe
    There will be daily educational challenges as well as just for fun challenges I have incorporated this into grade appropriate tasks. For example task cards with daily challenges, treasure huts (map skills), etc..
    I have a bamboo hut in my class which is the reading hut for SSR and indiv. reading I also purchased a lot of classroom decor from oriental trading co. Grass skirt type borders around center tables, blow up animals, parrots, totem pole, palm tree etc...
