PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This packet includes the following letters and forms that I use in my kindergarten classroom:

Letter to the Parents:
This is a letter that I send home at the beginning of year to explain the classroom behavior system to the parents.

Weekly Behavior Chart:
I used this behavior chart in my student's Take Home Folder. In my classroom, I use a light system to monitor behavior throughout the day. At the end of the day the student's are responsible for coloring in the block for the day, either green, yellow, or red to reflect their behavior and then I initial the box to ensure the have correctly recorded their behavior for the day. I also require the parents to initial each night to let me know they have seen the behavior chart. I use the comment section to relay to the parents any issues or accomplishments that the child had throughout the day or the parent can comment in that section back to me about any follow-up they have. Later in the year I will often have the student write what their bad choices were for the day and what the consequences were for their action or what good choices they had made for the day.

Traffic Light Chart:
I print this out on card stock and laminate it to post by the "How are we doing today?" pocket chart as a reminder.

"Caught You Being Good" Slips:
I cut these out and keep them in a basket on my table. Anytime I see a student making exemplary choices, I fill out what I caught them doing as a way to celebrate good behavior. I send the slip home in the student's home folder so the parents can see what their child was doing well with at school that day.

Red Light Report:
I use this form when a student has a red light. At the beginning of the year, I transcribe what the student says on the form. As the year progresses, the student takes over the responsibility of filling out what choices they made and what actions they are going to take to fix the problem.

Hi Kerry,
Thanks for sending the parent letter in all black. I still have a little dilemma and maybe it's my fault. Originally, you retyped the parent letter, as you can see down below, with my rules for my classroom. This is the parent letter that I need. If there is a charge please let me know. Thank you!

On  August 26, 2013Kerry answered:
Please email me at kerryreg@earthlink.net and I will email you with the personalized letter. Since it was a specialized listing, I can not upload a revision since I took down the listing after your purchase. I would be happy to email you the black and white letter for free, so please shoot me an email.

Hi Kerry,
I love the Traffic Light Behavior Management system packet that I purchased from you last year. I have only one request. If possible could you make the parent letter in all black ink. I do not have colored ink and when I try to copy the page, the colored words do not copy well. Last year, a parent made all of the copies in color. This year, I don't have anyone to do that for me. Let me know if there is a charge:)
Thank you! Cathy Stewart

Definitely! I will work on that this evening and get a revision up ASAP!

EDIT: I added a blackline copy of the parent letter to the packet and uploaded the revision. You should be able to download the revised packet for free since you have already paid for the original. Please let me know if you have any problems downloading it. Thank you for supporting my TPT shop!

On  September 4, 2012,  Buyer asked:
Hi Kerry,
Thanks for offering to send a revised letter for me. Here is the info that I need changed:
The beginning paragraph is fine. The changes start with the rules.
Rules:
1. Follow directions the first time given.
2. Listen quietly while others are speaking.
3. Respect other people's property.
4. Keep hands, feet and objects to yourself.
5. Be kind and helpful.
(Paragraph 2)
Each morning the students will start the day on the color green. The green light is a reminder that they are making good choices and to keep doing what they are doing. Their light will remain green as long as they follow the classroom rules.

(Paragraph 3)
If the student starts to make bad choices, they will be given one verbal warning. If they continue after the warning, their name will moved to the color yellow. The yellow is a reminder that they need to think about the choices they are making and to make sure they are following the classroom rules.
(Paragraph 4)
If the student continues to make bad choices after being moved to yellow light, they will then have their name moved to red light. The red light is a reminder to stop what they are doing because they are not making good choices. The student will sit in the "Thinking Spot" for five minutes to reflect upon their actions. Then, the student and I, will write a note together to you explaining the behavior and what they are going to do to make better choices. The note will be signed by both the student and myself and be sent home for you to sign and return to school the next day.

At the end of the day, each student will color their behavior sheet with the color that they have earned that day. I will then initial for that day. At the end of the week, all students who have earned the color green the entire week will go to prize box first. Next, the students with one yellow or red for the week will get to go to the prize box. Those students who have been on yellow or red more than one day will not go to the prize box that week. They will be given a "How Can I Move From ___ to ____?" form to take home so they can discuss with their parents how they plan to earn the color green on the following week. If inappropriate behavior persists, a parent teacher conference will be scheduled.

Thank you for your help and support with this matter!

Sincerely,
Mrs. C. Stewart
I really appreciate this. I hope to send this home on Thursday, Open House night:)!

I have personalized the letter for you. I set up a special listing for you that can be found here: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Behavior-Management-Packet-for-Mrs-C-Stewart

Please let me know when you have purchased it so I can take it down. (If you have already purchased the pack, let me know and I will set up a free listing for just the pdf of the letter.) I hope this is helpful for your open house. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
