In our classroom we will have a pledge that we
say in the morning. The pledge reads, “I am
responsible for my behavior today. I will be
respectful, act responsibly, stay safe and excel.
I will do this because it’s the right thing to do.
This is what I strive for in my classroom.
I will use a positive, assertive plan to help your
child take responsibility for his/her behavior. The
goal is to have a fair and consistent way in which
to work with all of my students.
I love this discipline plan because it gives every
student the opportunity to manage his/her own
behavior. The plan consists of three parts:
rules, consequences and rewards.
The rules are:
1. Follow directions the first time they are given.
2. Raise your hand before speaking or leaving seat.
3. Complete assignments.
4. Keep your hands, feet and other objects to yourself.
5. Treat others the way you want to be treated.
In our room we use a behavior clip chart. Everyone starts the day on green and can stay there, move up or move down, depending upon the behavior each student shows.
Purple - Beyond Expectations!
Blue - Extra Effort!
Green - Keep It Up!
Yellow – Think About It!
Orange - Not Looking Good!
Red - Yikes!
I will send home a behavior folder every day, except Friday. This will explain your child’s behavior for the day. Please sign the sheet and return it daily. This lets me know that you are aware of what is occurring in the classroom.
The rewards for making good choices are verbal praise, stickers, certificates, notes, candy, treasure chest, positive referrals, diamond dollars (these can be used to spend at our school store) or special privileges.
