So as we all know, some of our kiddo's like to start new behaviors. This week, I have a whole NEW kid. I am convinced its puberty (5th grade boy). This student is obsessed with fans and air conditioner units. He will get lost in the sound and begin to stem. I try to prevent this at all costs, but this week I caved.
I used one of the working cards from my Positive Reinforcement Card Pack on TPT, and let him work for the fan. At first I had to reward him every 3 minutes, but by today we were up to 20 minute increments. This card saved my life this week! While this is still a temporary fix, it is managing the tantrums so that all of my students are safe. I am still working to figure out the sudden change in behaviors, but at least for today we are managing the behaviors.
Check out my product on Teachers Pay Teachers and offer any feedback on how I could revise this to make it more effective :)
