Clip to ScrapBook #8

The video incentive is having some partial success this week. My rule is three good call-backs in a row earns a video. Even through it took us twelve bad ones in a row, plus lots of reteaching and practice, the class saw one yesterday and two videos today.
I try to put fun things in. The eight students who had turned in their writing assignment last week got to play board games during writing today. The rest had to continue writing and turn it in today, because progress reports go out tomorrow.
A little experiment was done today. I gave a directed drawing lesson as a break from math today. It was done on the back of a worksheet before everyone turned it in. Eleven students out of my 28 third-graders chose not to. They either drew something else or left the back blank. That means at least a third of my class is off-task during everything, even "fun" things
