Even veteran teachers get focused on the negative behaviors, often from just one or two students who seem to ruin a lesson. It is so easy to forget the many good, hardworking students, and the good traits in those struggling students as well.
While still applying consequences for negative behaviors, adding The Keys to Success to a classroom helps the teacher seek and praise the many wonderful behaviors that happen every day.
“The keys show me that I am doing good and I want to do better.” - 3rd grader
“I had a child struggling with cursive. This child had a nice cursive paper, so I rewarded him with a key. Ever since then, he takes pride in his work and tries to be neat.” - Teacher
