What has this student done over the past month to achieve Student of the Month?
Before Patrick came to our program he was doing half days without any demands. He started our program mid January on full days and was immediately frustrated when he was on red. As a kid who thrives in a positively reinforced environment it was not long before Patrick got accustomed to our level system and worked hard to get on Blue. He prides himself on following directions and is having continuously smoother transitions from rotation to rotation. The amount of work Patrick has been able to complete in just this short month shows that his noncompliance behaviors are subsiding as he is working hard to stay and surpass grade level.
Provide feedback from a teacher or staff member on why this student is Student of the Month
Patrick has the strongest sense of justice, he is always the first to stick up for a friend or notify a teacher to express his needs. He continues to set a great example for his peers and reminds them to stay on task and earn their points so they “can all earn Fun Friday together!” He comes to school every day with the biggest smile and is the first to say good morning and give everyone a hug, he is really a joy to have in class!
What is something this student has accomplished so far this school year that they are proud of?
This school year we are particularly proud of Patricks work completion. He struggled with noncompliance during non-preferred activities and even with preferred activities would get frustrated finishing tasks within time constraints. Mrs. Sam has worked hard to create a more reinforcing environment with an interesting curriculum for Patrick to enjoy, this has to lead to an increase in work completion and he is not meeting that goal!
