Use of a clip chart to monitor individual behavior: Each student has a clothespin, or clip, with his or her name

on it. Everyone will start on green at the beginning of each day, and clips can be moved up and down throughout the day based on behavior. Students will earn tickets to “buy” prizes based on the level they end the day with! {Ticket scale: green = 1; blue= 2; purple = 3; pink = 4} The Super Student level (pink) is reserved for outstanding behavior. A student who reaches this level will earn a special note home commending them for their great behavior.

-

Students can move to the Great Job level (purple) for continuing to display good behavior. You should be very proud of your child for reaching this level!

-

Students will move to the Good Choices level (blue) for showing that they are making the right behavior decisions! Ending the day on this level is great!

-

Every student will start the day on the Ready to Learn level (green). As the day goes on, clips can be moved up and down, based on behavior. This level is a good one to be on!

-

A student will be moved to the Think About It level (yellow) as a warning about his/her behavior, and a reminder to follow the rules.

-

Students who continue to display poor behavior can move down to the Teacher‟s Choice level (orange). The Teacher can choose whether the student will lose 5 minutes of recess or their center time. In addition, the student‟s parents/guardian will be notified by phone. When a student moves to the Parent Contact level (red), the teacher will set up a meeting with the principal and parents/guardian.

Use of team points to monitor small group behavior: - The class, depending on the number of students, will be split into 4 or 5 teams. When each member of the team is „caught‟ showing good behavior (i.e. sitting quietly, following directions, listening to speaker, staying on task, working together, having productive discussions, ect.) they will be given 1 point. Vice versa, whole tables not doing what they should will have points taken away. At the end of the week, the table with the most points will be treated to a goody of my choice. New seating arrangements will be made every three months. Use of B.R.E.A.K. to monitor whole class behavior: - As a class, everyone is working towards earning their break at the end of the day. B.R.E.A.K. is written on the white board at the front of the room. If students are reminded too many times to stop talking or to pay attention, a letter will be taken away. Students will have the chance to earn lost letters back for good behavior. Students MUST have all letters in order to receive their break at the end of the day. If the class loses their break for the day, they will either sit at their desks with their heads down or they will be given worksheets to complete for the 15 minutes normally dedicated to the break. Worksheet will be graded and counted towards their grade.
