Grade Level for Plan: 2nd grade
A. Classroom rules & consequences
Classroom rules will be posted on a bulletin board visible for all students to see.
They are as follows:
In this classroom we
Listen when someone is speaking
Raise our hand to speak
Follow Directions
Our Caring Friends
Obey School Rules
Consequences are as follows:
If students disobey the rules they will have consequences, as well as rewards for
outstanding behavior. In our classroom we will have a clip chart to manage
behavior. The chart is labeled with levels including: Outstanding, great choices,
good choices, ready to learn, warning, consequence and parent contact. At the
beginning of the day all students clips will be on the ready to learn level. If a
student misbehaves their clip will move down a level into warning. If they
disobey again, they will move into consequence. A reasonable consequence will
be the teachers choice. Consequences may be time out at recess or community
service (picking up trash around class, etc.). When a student gets a warning or a
consequence I will make sure to go over with them why they got a consequence,
and we will think of ways to improve behavior so that they know exactly where
they disobeyed rules and now how to fix the problem .The final offense will
result in parent contact. If this behavioral management plan is not working well
with a particular students, I will meet with them and their parents if possible.
Together we will discuss reasons why the plan isnt working for them. Together
we will come up for an individual plan for that child that serves them best, and
gives them goals to work towards.
B. Procedures keep your classroom running smoothly. List three procedures you will
teach your students and use in your classroom

1. During teacher instruction and discussions students are required to raise

their hands for questions, contribution, or help.
2. When students hear the phrase 1, 2, 3 all eyes on me they should know
instruction is about to start. Students will put their work down and raise three
fingers up to let the teacher know that they are paying attention and ready for
instruction to begin.
3. When students finish their work before others, they may quietly get out
unfinished work and continue working.
C. What positive reinforcement strategies will you use?
I do believe that students should be held accountable for their actions and
therefore consequences are necessary, but I also believe positive reinforcement
goes along way. For this reason students will be allowed to move back up the
chart so that students have a chance to improve their behavior and have an
encouragement to do so. Also at the each day any student who gets on the
outstanding level, will be rewarded with the camper of the day reward (sort of
the class mvp). They will get a certificate and a piece of candy to take home. This
will encourage others to strive towards a goal, it will also encourage the student
who receives the reward and send a message to parents that there child behaved
appropriately. Additionally, little positive reinforcements should be used
throughout out the day. For example, praise one child for being quiet in line, and
this will encourage others to be quiet as well. Students and parents should sign a
contract and know the rules very well. Smiles, winks, nods and pats will be given
to let students they are behaving well.

D. What is the role of the principal in your management plan?

First, I will talk to the principal and make sure that my behavioral management
plan follows well with the school rules. Usually principals are used only with
children who are misbehaving, however I believe that they can be used to
reinforce students good behavior as well. For example if a student is doing
really well, the principal can stop and praise the student. Hopefully, students will
want their good behavior to be recognized too and they will be motivated. I will
also go to my principal for support and advice for difficult situations and
behavior problems.


A. Seating chart and attendance (Do you have a seating chart? How do you take
I will have a seating chart in my classroom. There will be a name tag on their
desk before the first day of school, so they will know exactly where to sit. The
name tag will stay on their desk the whole year. I will take attendance every
morning. Students will have morning work to begin completing in the morning,
so when students are working I will see the students who are not there and
quickly fill out my attendance.
B. Daily schedule (Where is it posted?)
The schedule daily schedule will be posted in the front of the room on a bulletin
board that is visible for all students to see.

C. Interruptions or delays (What will be your procedure if you are interrupted by a

visitor or phone call?)

If I am able to manage the interruption without leaving the room, I will do so. I
will invite the person into the room and face students as you talk with the visitor.
If the interruption lasts longer than a few seconds, and I must leave the room, I
will ask students to continue working if they are already involved in an activity.
If not, I will ask them to take out their library books and read quietly. I will
leave my cell phone off at all times unless I am expecting an important phone
call. If it is mandatory to answer a phone call, I will ask students to continue
working or ask them to read their library books while I take the phone call. If
we have a delay, we will continue our classroom schedule.
D. Bathrooms (What will be your procedure for students going to the bathroom if there
is a bathroom in your classroom?)
Students may use restrooms one at a time without permission

I will always have an extra desk available. I will meet with students before school
so that I can explain rules and procedures to them and handle necessary
paperwork. If they can not make it before school, I will do it as soon as available
time is open during class time. I will make sure students have all materials and
texts needed. I will be warm and welcoming to the students. I will appoint a

keep bus number, parents, and emergency phone numbers on hand for when
problems do arise.

is late after that I will deduct five points from their grade. I will contact parents
if a pattern occurs.
C. Procedures for Keeping Records and Providing Feedback to Students
I will record all grades in a grade book. There is several ways that I will give
feedback to students.
1. I use three stars and a wish to give feedback to students. The stars are things
that the students did well, and the wish is something the student could
improve on.
