11 years ago when I first started teaching Kindergarten one of the first things I bought for my class was a cute little wooden box to use as a treasure chest. During my student teaching I was convinced that dollar store goodies and stickers galore were the way to properly “manage” the behavior in my class. Slowly, I started to question this concept as I began to realize that the children that needed the most support did not conform to the standard management system. I always found myself developing plans that best matched their needs in addition to the standard behavior plan.
