Dear Parents, 

You may have heard you child talking about the "Chatterbox."  This is a new behavior modification program I have put into place in our classroom as of Wednesday 9/13.  I am trying to increase on task behavior and focus.  The way the "Chatterbox" works is that every time a child is talking to a friend at an inappropriate time (ie during instruction or individual classwork) they are given a "Chatterbox" slip that goes in into our "Chatterbox."  At the end of the day tallies are taken.  Any child that is not in the "Chatterbox" stands up and the whole class cheers for them.  If your child makes it to Friday without being in the "Chatterbox" once, he/she will take home an award and prize.  If you child is in the "Chatterbox" this week, I have started taking baseline data and will set goals for them.   I will inform you of those goals as well.  Since it is a short week, however many "Chatterboxes" your child has will be the goal for the whole week next week.  I am trying to make the goals obtainable so that your child does not get discouraged and will continue to work towards eventually having zero "Chatterbox" slips.  If your child makes their personal goal for the week, they will get a goal award and prize.  

Please speak to your children about the importance of staying on task.  I explained to the children that if they are talking to a friend, they will miss important information that we will be building off of.  Not only is it a distraction for them, but for the person they are chatting with.

I truly appreciate your support in making this a wonderful and productive school year!

Kindest regards, 
Kelly Scanlon
