Checking In and Checking Out--Helping Students Stay On Track
I have a few small friends that I see everyday because they need help staying on track academically. Left to their own devices, they would not get homework done or stay organized. Daily checking in helps to keep them on track. It also shows them that someone cares and is not going to give up, even when things don't go well. Lastly, it unites home and school because their is daily communication. Some educators would call this PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Strategies), others BIP (Behavior Intervention Program),and yet others RtI (Response to Intervention). But,whatever you want to call it, just know that it works.
Here is the tweaked up version I am using for a Check In and Check Out Sheetwhen I see them everyday. It takes no more than 5 minutes to complete, but it helps to hold them accountable, and keeps them from slipping into the abyss.
You can get a copy of this form on my Resource Page under RtI.
