Second grade students’ behavior in Sherrie McLemore’s class is reinforced through the “Gift Giving Tree.” As the students are following the PBS school-wide expectations of Responsibility, Safety and Respect they receive positive praise and are given a Gator Buck. When they receive two Gator Bucks they may trade them in for a gift ticket which go into a jar and the teacher randomly draws tickets throughout the day. The students are able to choose a gift from off of or under the tree. The tree is loaded with gifts such as books, pens, pencils, candy, stickers, puzzles and much more! Angelo Donayre and Teysia Tuff show off their recently acquired treats.
