    Hi, I just looked at the realrestitution website after reading your post on proteacher. I like the ideas because I really agree that rewards should be intrinsic. However, I am a first year teacher dealing with 19 kindergartners. I am not sure that they are ready to talk about their beleifs. I looked at some of the questions and it said five year olds could do this. My students have never had any structure in their lives and I am trying to figure out how to provide it for them but they are all uncooperative. My school paddles students who are behavoir problems and I don't want to resort to that but it is looking like my only option right now. How do you begin a discussion with kindergartners on classroom beleifs? How do you keep them queit to even talk about it? I need a quick help soon and then try to gradually implement something. Do you have any suggestions for me?
