On every Friday school folder since starting Second Grade, John has gotten a check in the “I work quietly and do not disturb others” field, meaning that he does not work quietly and does disturb others. John likes to talk and play and he does both during class despite knowing that he should not do it. I think sometimes he actually just cannot help himself. When John got home from school today, he was so excited to show me his Friday folder. He had put a check mark in his “What I Think” column for that field, but there was no check mark from Mrs. Dempsey! He told me that he worked really, really hard these last two weeks and that he would try to keep it up. He was also very proud of himself and he should be. Great job, John!
