Fun at the park

We had our first trip to the park this year last Saturday. The reason for this trip was to reward Kennedy for getting 3 stars. We started the sticker chart as an incentive for Kennedy's good behavior at preschool. Kennedy chose 3 different colors of cardstock and I drew (or tried) large stars and Kennedy cut them out herself. Since Kennedy goes to preschool 3 days a week, she gets to put a star up if she gets a good report from the teacher when I pick her up. But, if she has been in time out or has had a card pulled that day, she either has to take a star that's already there away or if there is not one, she doesn't get to put one up. After she gets 3, she gets to pick from a few choices we have given her as a reward. The park is one of them and seems to be a favorite! This has really been effective for Kennedy and her behavior at school. We had a rocky start, but she has been doing great ever since we implemented the sticker chart around Thanksgiving. We are so proud of her and all of us get to enjoy the reward!!
