In conversing with other mom's of kindergartners across the nation, I find it common for their teachers to use the "card pulling" system on students. In in effort to teach the kids what's acceptable behavior during class, this system seems to work fairly well. Although, I'm not sure what the colors of the cards mean to the students, I do know that having more than 3 cards pulled in one day could mean some serious "time" for the child. I assume a trip to the Principal's office is a hefty lesson to the kids. Luckily, Dominic hasn't made that trip....yet! This kid loves to talk.... and talk he does! That's what gets him in trouble the most. He hasn't quite mastered the appropriate times to withhold his need to "tell all".
Completely unrelated, the class was visited by a local Police Officer last week and fingerprinting took place, as well as a tour of the police car. Do you think he endured enough punishment for the week? He certainly "high-tailed" it through the vehicle, probably in fear of being taken away in it!
