Classroom Games & Poet Athletes: Highlights for April 7-13, 2015
Glen Park Elementary has embraced a new game in the classroom. The PAX Good Behavior Game starts at the beginning of the school year, when students discuss and agree on what is good behavior and what is not. Throughout the year, students keep track of everyone’s behavior during classroom instruction and are rewarded with a short, fun activity at the end of each game. This game teaches students internal focus, how to work toward valued goals, and how to cooperate with each other to reach those goals. Students also work to self-regulate and delay gratification for a bigger goal. The game is part of a larger school focus called “Response to Intervention” that SFUSD schools have in place to reduce classroom disruptions, increase learning time and improve learning. Superintendent Richard Carranza will be joining students at a celebration.
When: Tuesday, April 7 / 1:00 p.m. (watch the PAX game in a classroom)
1:30 – 2:00 p.m. (assembly)
