“Rebecca, it looks like you did a great job in math and specials yesterday, but you had a hard time in reading. What’s going on with that? Oh yeah? OK, how can you handle it when Johnny is reading out loud, and you can’t concentrate? That’s a great idea. So today you are going to ask to move if you can’t concentrate. You earned 14 checks yesterday, and your goal was 12–great job! You can have computer time until the bell rings. Today, you need to earn 14 checks to earn your reward. Keep up the good work!”
