How do students earn tokens? By meeting our TUS Expectations (Taking care of yourself, Understanding each other, Safely learning together). For example, being where you’re supposed to be, thinking how your behaviors affect others, walking in the hallway, staying in control of your body, and reporting unsafe behaviors and conditions to adults. See Twinfield Guiding Expectations for all expected behaviors.
Where do tokens go? Elementary tokens go to their classroom tube.
How do we celebrate? Students and teachers collaboratively choose a celebration activity to work towards. When the class has earnedone inch of tokens per number of students in the class, they have earned their celebration activity. These activities should not exceed 30 minutes. Celebration ideas: Extra recess, game time, crazy hair day, no homework days, theme days
What happens next? Students return tokens to receptacle in designated area near the elementary office. The process of earning tokens and celebrations continues throughout the year. Classroom celebrations will be documented at the end of the elementary hallway. Once the elementary wing has earned 30 classroom celebrations, the whole wing will celebrate with an elementary celebration event. This process will continue throughout the year. Teachers’ token supplies will be replenished at staff meetings.
