Positive Behavior Management Plan
I believe that positive praise and encouragement leads to the best behavior from the students. As a class, we will praise people, give up put-downs, notice & speak up about hurts, seek wise people, and right wrongs.
When I notice a child being good, these things could happen:
- Verbal praise
- Students could receive Titan Tickets
- Email parent or phone call home
- Praise note sent home
I will explicitly teach classroom rules, procedures and expected behavior with lots of opportunity to practice. The students will be accountable for remembering and following the rules. Mistakes will happen, but we can learn from our mistakes.
Clip ChartThe clip chart is a great tool that allows students to be rewarded for positive behavior, while holding them accountable for negative behavior. Each student has a clip with their name on it. Everyone will start on green at the beginning of the day, and clips are moved up and down throughout the day based on behavior.
· Rainbow – The “outstanding” level is reserved for outstanding behavior.
· Blue – Students can move to the “great job” level for continuing to display good behavior. You should be very proud of your child for reaching this level.
· Purple – Students will move to the “good day” level for showing that they are making great behavior choices.
· Green – Every student will start the day on the “ready to learn” level. As the day goes on, clips can be moved up and down based on behavior. The level is a good one to be on.
· Orange – A student will be moved to the “think about it” level as a warning about his or her behavior, and a reminder to follow classroom expectations.
· Yellow – Students who continue to display poor behavior can be moved down to the “teacher’s choice” level. Here, the teacher will choose the appropriate consequence.
· Red – When a student moves to the “parent contact” level, a think sheet filled out by the student will be sent home for you to discuss with your student. The sheet needs to be returned the following day.
We have four classroom rules that are the same as the campus rules that the students are expected to follow:
· Be Respectful
· Be Responsible
· Be Safe
· Be a Learner
