Classroom Rules and Discipline Policy:
Over the years I have tried a variety of behavior management programs in my classroom, but once I found this one it stuck. I really like how those students who are choosing to do what is right get rewarded. I found this Behavior Management Clip Chart at the First Class Teacher store on TPT, http://www.teacherspayteachers..com/store/First-Class-Teacher
The first day of school I go over the rules and consequences with students. We make a list of what behavior is expected for each rule. We go over the behavior management chart and how it is used with their clips.. I show them the note that will go home to their parents/guardians and the note that will go home if their clip ends up on the red spot.
I send the notes home to parents/guardians and ask them to return the bottom portion of the policy note to school after discussing it with their child. We reinforce the classroom rules and management chart throughout the school year.
Monthly Data Behavior Chart:
I chart my students behavior during the week and this is an easy tool to use. Before moving students clips on the behavior chart to “Ready to Learn "for the next day, I write down how they did during the day. If this is too much for you, you may want to just collect data on those students who have a more difficult time. This gives you data that you make need for parent/teacher conferences or referral for special education services.
Parent Notes for Outstanding or Red Zone Behavior:
I have included notes to go home if students have an outstanding or a tough day. I think it is important to reward those who try hard and do the right things. On the note for those students who got on red, I expect it signed by a parent/guardian and then returned to me the next day. If it is not I call home to parents to make sure they have seen the note.
Individual Student Daily Behavior Reports (Examples Included):
I used these charts for my special education students, but have found they were very helpful for those students who just need a more help throughout the day. These charts allows them immediate feedback after each activity. You just have to draw the correct face or just put an X in the appropriate box. They are sent home each day and returned the next day so I have record of students daily behavior and parents are aware of their child’s behavior.
I also set up a reward system for students, so many happy faces in the morning they can do or get something and the same in the afternoon. Parents also set up a reward system at home too. For some students you will be able to stop these daily charts once their behavior has improved.
Student of the Week Awards:
I have included 10 “Student of the Week” awards.. There are 2 awards on each set, just print on cardstock and cut in half. Each week I choose a Student of the Week in the classroom. Students can be chosen for their excellent behavior, work ethic, or any way you choose. With this privilege they are able to do and get a variety of fun things throughout the week.
Student of the Month Awards:
At our school, each classroom picks a “Student of the Month”. Print award on cardstock and place picture of student in the appropriate box. I have used pictures I have taken of students or their school photo. These students are recognized at the monthly award assembly Their parents/guardians are asked to come and their pictures are taken and put in our local paper.
Good Behavior Postcards:
I send at least one postcard home to my students throughout the year. Again, I think it is so important to recognize students achievements during the school year. Students love getting them in the mail and parents are very appreciative .
I have included a set with large postcards (2 cards per page) and smaller cards (4 per page). Print the front of card on cardstock and then put it back in paper carriage to print the back of the postcard. Fill out accordingly.
