One of my kids didn't get to participate in our Fun Friday activities because she didn't have her weekly behavior report on Friday, which is one of the rules. It's a sheet parents sign daily that show whether or not the kid got in trouble at all during the week. She didn't have hers. She said it was because she was absent on Monday, when I gave them out, which she was. Kids know they are supposed to come to me on Tuesday if they didn't get a sheet on Monday. Heck, even if they come to me on Wednesday or Thursday, I'll give it to them. She is a good kid, and wouldn't have lost privileges otherwise, but it's a rule: No behavior report, no Fun Friday. In trying to be fair, I had her and about 6 other kids who'd lost Fun Friday for various reasons sit under an oak tree, while the other kids were on the playground for 20 minutes. The ones sitting out were reading and talking. I thought I was being pretty generous, in that other teachers keep such kids inside, doing work. Nobody seemed terribly upset at the time. After school Friday, one of the aides at my school ran into this particular girl getting on the school bus and said she was, apparently, very upset. She told the aid she'd asked me for a behavior sheet during the week and I hadn't given it to her. I've racked my memory, and just have NO recollection of her asking for one at all. I remember other kids doing so, and giving them to them. Maybe she's lying. However, there is a tiny voice in my head saying, "maybe she asked you when you were involved in something else, like guided reading or walking the kids to the lunchroom, and you said you'd give it to her later." I'm just not sure what to do. This has been bugging me all weekend. My husband said the first thing I have to do is chill out about the small stuff, but I feel terrible thinking I may have punished a good kid for my mistake. IF what she is saying is true, I wish she'd come to me on Friday to plead her case - but that isn't really her style. I'm also concerned I'll have her angry mother at my door or on the voicemail on Monday. Should I just wait this out and see what happens? Would any of you call home on a Sunday afternoon to be proactive? Am I making too big a deal out of this?
