A List of Ways to Encourage Good Behavior

These are mostly suited for the younger students but can be adapted for older classes.

  • Classroom Rules

    Work with students to come up with a set of classroom rules and consequences.

  • Colour Cards

    Have a pocket chart with all students names on it. Beside each name have a pocket where either a red, yellow, or green card will be display. Red=some sort of consequence decided and explained earlier.
    Yellow=Warning
    Green=You're doing great.

  • Punch Out Card

    Each child receives a pad of paper. Whenever they are performing well, helping out, etc.., give them a punch with a one hole hole puncher. When students reach a certain number of punches, they can pick from a box of prizes.

  • Class Points

    Display a tally system of points on the blackboard. Every time students are performing well, give them a point. When the class earns a certain number of points by the end of the week, they get to do a class fun activity at the end of the week.

  • Marble jar

    If the class is doing well add a marble to the marble jar. When the jar is filled, they get to do a class fun activity. Count the marbles regularly as a regular math activity.

  • Positive Popsicle Sticks

    Write out positive comments on popscicle sticks like "great helper", "super effort", etc., and hand them out accordingly. When each student recieve a certain number of popsicle sticks they can get a reward.

  • Good Behavior Chart

    As a class, come up with a list of good behaviors. At the end of the day, go through each one and ask the class how each was demonstrated in the classroom during the day. Then, as a class thank the student who accomplished it.

Two Travelling Angels

دو فرشته مسافر

Two traveling angels stopped

To spend the night in the home

Of a wealthy family.

دو فرشته مسافر

در منزل خانواده ثروتمندي توقف كردند

تا شب را در آنجا بگذرانند.

The family was rude and refused

To let angels stay in the mansion-s

Guest room instead the angels were

Given a small space in the cold basement

آن خانواده گستاخي كردند و اجازه ندادند فرشته ها

شب را در داخل مهمانخانه داخل عمارت بگذرانند.

بلكه به آنها فضاي كوچكي از زير زمين خانه را

اختصاص دادند.

As they made their bed on the hard floor

The older angels saw a hole in the wall

And repaired it.

When the younger angels asked why the

Older angels replied-

<>

همانطور كه فرشته ها مشغول آماده كردن بستر خود روي

زمين سخت بودند،فرشته پيرتر سوراخي در ديوار ديد و

روي آن را پوشاند. فرشته جوان تر علت را پرسيد و او گفت:

«چيزها هميشه آن طوري نيستند كه به نظر مي رسند.»

The next night the pair came to rest at the house

Of a very poor-but very hospitable farmer and

His wife.after sharing what little food theyhad

The couple let the angels sleep in their bed. where

They cold have good nights rest.

شب بعد فرشته ها به خانه زوج كشاورز بسيار فقير ، اما

مهمان نوازي رفتند. پس از صرف غذاي مختصري كه داشتند ،

آن زوج رختخواب خود را در اختيار فرشته ها قرار دادند ، تا

شب را راحت بخوابند.

When the sun came up the next morning

The angels found the farmer and his wife in tears.

Their only cow - whose milk had been

Their sole in come - lay dead in the field.

صبح روز بعد فرشته ها آن زن و شوهر را گريان ديدند.

تنها گاوشان ، كه شيرش تنها راه درآمدشان بود ،

در مزرعه مرده بود.

The younger angels was infuriated and asked

The older angels :

Happen? The first man had everything-yet you

Helped him. The second family had little but was

Willing to share every thing and you let the cow die.>

فرشته جوان تر به خشم آمد و به فرشته پيرتر گفت : چه طور اجازه

دادي چنين اتفاقي بيفتد؟ مرد اولي همه چيز داشت با اين حال تو كمكش

كردي. خانواده دومي چيزي نداشتند اما همان را هم با ما تقسيم

كردند وبا اين حال تو گذاشتي گاوشان بميرد.

the older angels replied.

mansion I noticed there was gold stored in that hole

in the wall. Since the owner was so obsessed with

greed and unwilling to share his good fortune

I sealed the wall so he wouldnot find it.>

فرشته پيرتر پاسخ داد:«چيزها هميشه آنطور نيستند كه به نظر مي رسند»

«شبي كه ما در زيرزمين آن عمارت بوديم متوجه شدم كه در سوراخ

ديوار طلا پنهان كرده بودند. از آنجا كه صاحبخانه طماع و بخيل بود

و مايل نبود ثروتش را با كسي شريك شود ، من سوراخ را بستم

و مهر كردم تا دستش به آن طلا نرسد.»

Then last night as we slept in the farmers bed

The angels of death came for his wife.

I gave him the cow instead.

شب گذشته كه در رختخواب آن كشاورز خوابيده بوديم .

فرشته مرگ به سراغ همسرش آمد.

من در ازا گاو را به او دادم.

Things are not always what they seem.

چيزها هميشه آنطوري نيستند كه به نظر مي رسند.

Sometimes that is exactly what happens

When things do not turn out the way they should.

If you have faith - you just need to trust

That every outcome is always to your advantage.

You just might not know it until some time later.

هنگامي كه اوضاع ظاهراً بر وفق مراد نيست

اگر ايمان داشته باشيد ، بايد توكل كنيد

و بدانيد همواره هر چه پيش مي آيد به نفع شماست.

فقط ممكن است تا مدت ها حكمتش را نفهميد.

[ چهارشنبه یازدهم مرداد 1385 ] [ 21:25 ] [ مهراوه ]

There are several types of adverb:
manner - place - time - frequency - degree.

There are different places where you can put the adverb.

ADVERBS OF MANNER - these answer the question how?

This adverb usually comes after the direct object or if there is no direct object, after the verb:

She speaks Italian beautifully. He works well. You must drive your car carefully. Eat quietly.

ADVERBS OF PLACE - these answer the question where?

This adverb usually comes after the object, otherwise after the verb.

We saw you there. We were sitting here. We looked everywhere.

Note: somewhere, anywhere, follow the same rules as some and any:

Have you seen my glasses anywhere? I'm sure I left them somewhere. I can't find them anywhere.

ADVERBS OF TIME - these answer the question when?

This adverb usually comes either at the very beginning of the sentence or at the end.

Afterwards we decided to go by car. I've done that journey before.

Note: yet and still: yet should be placed at the end of the sentence.

still should be placed before the verb, except with the verb 'to be' when it comes after.

We haven't started yet. He still wears old-fashioned clothes. She is still a student.

Compare these two sentences:
The train still hasn't arrived.
The train hasn't arrived yet.

ADVERBS OF FREQUENCY - these answer the question how many times?

This adverb comes after the verb 'to be' She is always honest

comes before simple tenses of all other verbs: They sometimes spend the whole of Saturday fishing.

comes after the first auxiliary in a tense consisting of more than one verb: I have often wondered how they did that.

I can sometimes go without food for days

Note: with 'used to' and 'have' the frequency adverb is usually placed in front:

We always used to look forward to the school holidays

He never has any trouble with his old car.

ADVERBS OF DEGREE - these answer the question to what extent?

This adverb can modify an adverb or an adjective and comes before the word it modifies:

The bottle is almost full, nearly empty.

They should be able to pass their exams quite easily

The following adverbs of degree can also modify verbs: almost, nearly, quite, hardly, scarcely, barely, just.

They follow the same pattern as frequency adverbs in terms of where they are placed:

I quite understand. We had almost reached the hut when the rain started. I am just beginning a new course

INVERSION

If you begin a sentence with one of the following, the normal word order changes - the verb comes first followed by the subject:

never, seldom, scarcely (scarcely......when), no sooner ....than, nowhere, in no circumstances, on no account, only then, not only :

Seldom has one century seen so many changes. No sooner did we hear the results when there was a knock at the door. Never would I be persuaded to buy a secondhand car.

Usual word order with different adverbs: MANNER PLACE TIME

She sang beautifully in the concert hall last night.

[ سه شنبه دهم مرداد 1385 ] [ 20:54 ] [ مهراوه ]

In this story you will see many examples of how adverbs can be used. As you know most adverbs have the ending «ly». For example:

  • quickly
  • really
  • fairly


We use an adverb when we want to describe an activity as in this example:

  • They speak English too quickly for me.


Please be aware that there are quite a number of adverbs that don't have the ending «ly». Here are some examples:

  • fast
  • well
  • often


As with any grammar rule there a lot of exceptions and it's really best for you to simply read stories and find the adverbs in italics.

So without futher ado, let's get straight to the point.

«High Hopes»

I had a nightmare the other night. I dreamt I was bungee jumping, that's when you throw yourself off a bridge and your feet are attached to an elasticated rope that pulls you back again. I didn't do the jump properly, in fact, I did it extremely badly because I fell only a few metres and was dangling dangerously just below the bridge for ages.
Then I woke up and thanked my lucky stars enthusiastically that it had been only a dream. I lay quietly in bed the following morning and wondered how I had come to have such a terrible dream. Never would I contemplate the idea of jumping off a bridge with or without an elasticated cord. Then I remembered I had seen a film on the television the night before showing some students bungee jumping. The funny thing about this strange sport is that you often see people jumping off but you never see them come back. As I said, in no circumstances could I be persuaded to do it for the simple reason that I am terrified of heights. I remember once sitting petrified at my desk at work listening to a colleague describing how he had jumped out of a plane by parachute on one occasion in order to raise some money for charity, I can recall how I almost fell off my chair in fear. No sooner had he finished telling his story than I had to get up and go and lie down quietly in a darkened room. I can still remember one incident that illustrates my fear of heights — I haven't got over it yet and it's still very vivid in my mind.

I never have to find an excuse to go the seaside. I always agree to it when someone suggests going to the coast. I never can resist the sight and smell of the sea. A trip had been planned for the weekend. I always used to pack the night before one of these trips and invariably I rarely slept in anticipation of the event. That's what comes of working in a large city day in day out. We set off early and reached our destination quite quickly at about 11 a.m. Hardly had we finished our morning coffee in a small cafe when it started to rain really heavily. Then we decided to drive around to the front and watch the sea as it pounded violently against the beach. We were just going to abandon the whole idea of staying there any longer when the sun made an appearance suddenly.
As quickly as the rain had started equally as speedily it stopped. We all got out of the car and walked slowly up the cliff at the end of the town. Usually you get a magnificent view of the bay at the top but on this particular afternoon rarely had I seen so much mist. And that, in a manner of speaking, was my down fall. Although I knew this particular piece of land quite well, the fog had obscured the edge of the cliff and although I was walking very slowly as I always do on high ground, I stepped on a piece of grass which I thought was solid but soon discovered was anything but. I slipped immediately and began to descend almost as if I was nearly doing a slow motion bungee jump only this time I was the right way up. With a jolt I stopped abruptly and realized I was going nowhere. Only then did I start to panic. I could hear the sea but I didn't dare look down and I started to yell as loud as I could. I waited patiently on my little edge for at least half an hour while I was being assured that help would come soon.
Eventually a rope was dropped down to me and I gradually hoisted myself up to the top of the cliff. By now the mist had cleared completely and I took a quick look down to discover that I had only been about half a metre from the beach. But I thought I'd conceal that information subtly.
After all, it would have spoilt the hero's welcome I received.

«Charlie the Brave»

Charlie is a teacher and his wife, Maria is an artist. One of the main differences between the two is that Charlie has no imagination well perhaps a little whereas Maria has the most vivid imagination you could think of.
Now imagination is an essential quality if you’re an artist but sometimes it can lead to problems. Take the night before last, for example. It was a fine summer night and you could see the moon and the stars quite clearly, it was shortly before the longest day of the year. Charlie was sitting in a deckchair enjoying the warm summer air when he felt something touch his shoulder; it was Maria’s hand and he could tell immediately she was a little worried about something. He had noticed this sensation ahundred times before. He asked her what the matter was and she replied that there was a strange thing on the jacket that was hanging in the bedroom. Now you must remember that they had both lived in the West Indies and had seen a lot of strange creatures in their house before. But now they were living in England and so Charlie just laughed and said he would have a look at the «thing».

He left the garden and made his way to the bedroom. He could see a jacket hanging in the bedroom and went up to it to have a closer look at the«thing». The moment he touched it, the thing sprang into life. Now Charlie experiences fear like the rest of us but when this creatures opened its wings, he jumped out of his skin and ran screaming from the room like a small child doing about 100 miles an hour.

What a fuss you may say and the brave among you may well regard such behaviour as pathetic but bats (for this thing was a bat) bring out the worst in many people. For a moment the next-door neighbours thought that Charlie was murdering his wife because of the noise they could hear. In fact the bat was the one that was frightened and it fluttered its wings and flew from one side of the bedroom to the other.
Eventually Charlie managed to trap the bat in a box and went out into thefront garden clutching the box as if it had a bomb inside it, took off the lid and the bat, obviously delighted to be free, flew away into the dark. Eventually Maria, who had been playing the guitar while Charlie was upstairs, asked Charlie if he had found out what the thing was. «Oh, nothing to worry about«, he said casually hoping that the terror could not be seen in his eyes, «it was just a bat.»
