Students are expected to learn and follow both classroom and school rules. Students should be ready to learn and have good online behavior. For behavior I like the Give Me Five strategy. 1. Eyes are watching, 2. Ears are listening, 3. Mouths are closed (until there is a question or answer given), 4. Sitting up in a good position, 5. Hearts are ready to learn. Good choices will be rewarded, and poor choices will be handled in a timely matter. Below are the rules of our classroom, rewards, and consequences. Please discuss them with your child, Thank you!
I HAVE ONE BIG RULE IN KINDERGARTEN "SAFETY FIRST, KINDNESS ALWAYS"
Students will be rewarded for good behavior. We will have different rewards that the students and I will come up with. Some may include certificates, phone calls home, and possibly a fun activity of their choice.
If a student chooses to break a rule he/she will be encouraged to think about how to positively change their behavior and the following steps may be taken:
- 1. Redirection from the teacher
- Verbal Warning- and possibly a “time out” to think about the behavior and then a chance to rejoin the activities. A discussion with the student and the teacher will take place to discuss good vs. poor choices to help your child learn and grow. (Self-regulation)
- Student may be removed from class after verbal warnings if need be.
- If a student struggles with behavior issues on a regular or frequent basis, the teacher may put the student on a daily behavior program that best meets the student’s needs. This may be a daily note home, a points earned system, etc. The parent will be kept informed of their students behavior struggles and successes.
