5. Bumble Bee
(Pictures from Mrspancake.com)
The first week of school each group will decide what they want to be. I'll do a mini lesson on alliteration and have them spice up the names. Their animals image is going to go on their cubby (magazine file). I will identify the groups by their animal names in my planbook. I'm currently in the process of adding more center type activities to my collection. I'm going to get bins for each group that will hold center activities that are appropriate for them. Each quarter I'll re-evaluate the activities in their bins.
I also plan on using the group names as part of a positive behavior plan. If a particular group is having a lot of behavior problems, I'm going to cut their group sign into X amount of pieces (x will be determined by age). Each day the group will have the opportunity to earn the pieces of their sign back. When the sign is complete, they will earn a prize (game day, reading outside, computer lab day). I feel that this would be too much to manage for every group so as stated earlier, I will only be doing this with a group that has behavior problems.
