Re: What works with your criers?

    My crier this year responds best to "we have to do A and B and
    C before we can go home" We made a list all the things we had
    to do (math, reading, writing, lunch, recess, stations, music,
    story time) with "go home" last on the list. I taped it to his
    table. When we complete something on the list he gets to mark
    it off. When he starts to tear up I remind him we need to
    finish the task so we can mark it off. Doesn't always work,
    but it is working well with this kiddo.
