We use a behavior management plan based on positive reinforcement and logical consequences. We use a color-coded system that allows students to monitor their own progress. We use a green, yellow, red, and purple chart.
When a student ends the day above green they get rewarded with a special prize.
When a child ends the day on purple this means that he/she has had an “Outstanding Day!”
When a child ends the day on green it means that your child had a “Great Day!”
If a student makes a poor choice regarding the classroom expectations, he/she will receive two reminders and then a warning. The student’s clip will be moved to yellow, which stands for “Oopsie! Let’s think.”
If the student continues to make a poor choice and is still having difficulty, their clip will be moved to red and parent contact will be made.
Additionally, we have also created a list of classroom guidelines as a class!
