Natural Consequences Update

When I got home from work yesterday one of the first things Caroline said to me was, "You forgot to sign my reading log!"  And of course my response to her was, "Well, you didn't do your part of writing down the book or setting it out for me."

She said that she'd had to sit and read during recess. Clearly she didn't like it but she wasn't completely shamed either.  I simply told her that it was her responsibility to write down her book and to set it on the table for one of us to sign it.  She didn't seem too bothered by that either, but I'm thinking it might take a few more times of her having to read at recess for it really to sink in.

Wow, they let her read? Our recess kids have to sit and watch the other kids play. We're mean, I guess! With how much Caroline likes to read....it might not be much of a punishment.

I'm pretty sure she had to sit on the bench during recess and read while the other kids were playing. So she was outside and not playing.
