Spot It and Shout It

When you spot a student exhibiting a character trait that your classroom has been learning through Integrity Time, have some type of system where you and the class can appropriately give a “shout out” to that student. This may be as simple as verbally recognizing the behavior or allowing the student a special privilege in the classroom. It may also be a chant your class comes up with in which they can all participate. Immediate reinforcement not only increases this behavior in that particular student, it encourages those around them to begin using it as well.
