Looking for an EASY positive behavior tip?
I’ve used this MVP strategy with my young first graders and it WORKS every time 🙂
M = Movement
V = Voice (we use noise levels 0, 1, and 2)
P = Participation
This chart is used doing Independent Work Time. Lessons usually include Guided Practice at the carpet as a whole group, then “showing what you know” with an exit ticket, or other written activity.
The MVP chart is reviewed before students are sent to their tables to complete their work.
After the activity, the chart is reviewed again and students determine if they earned a star, check, or X in each category. The teacher has already discussed appropriate “brain breaks” for the outcome.
Obviously, you don’t want to earn a X!
Teachers may adjust what the “V” or “P” looks like for different activities, such as math centers or partner work. The “M” most likely wouldn’t change, especially since we have a TON of chair-tippers this year! Anyone have any suggestions for that?!? 😉
