Do your students rotate through a series of specials' team classes each week -- library, art, music, P.E., and so on? As those extra-special, activity teachers, are you all in agreement about behavior expectations?

This resource centers around a behavior note that explains what a kid with C.L.A.S.S. looks and sounds like! That CLASS-y kid tries to be:

  • Creative
  • Likeable
  • has an A+ Attitude
  • is Self-Controlled
  • and Smart!

When something amazing happens in class, you can use the note to share the good news with the parent! On the other hand, if behavior issues arise... you've also got a note ready to document what happened and the steps you took to resolve it.

My school has a local print shop prep these as "carbon copy triplicates" for us, but I've saved them two to a sheet... so it will be easy to just jot down the info twice, if you want to file the bottom part away for your records.

Whether you need to send a quick positive note -- or the other kind -- have these prepped and ready to go when the occasion comes up! And if your behavior espectations differ a bit from my ideas... just use the editable version to adapt it to your teams' needs.

To reinforce your students' CLASS-y behavior, make it a new practice to designate one class per grade level as the C.L.A.S.S. of the Week (or the C.L.A.S.S. of the Month)! Award them a cute classroom door tag hanger that their teacher can proudly display to everyone who walks up and down the hall! I like to print my copies on bright cardstock -- and have my library helpers or a sub trim them out for me, so I always have plenty on hand.

I made door tag hangers for:

  • Library
  • Music
  • Art
  • P.E.
  • Computer
  • Technology
  • Enrichment
  • S.T.E.M.
  • Spanish
  • Counseling
  • ...and I included an editable version in case I forgot someone!

As a little bonus from one specialty team teacher to another, I've added my:

  • "Did You Forget Anything?" door poster
  • a set of hall passes (health room, restrooms, and office)
  • and some lost tooth envelopes (also a great prep task for library helpers!) My youngest kids seem to lose a LOT of teeth during library time for some reason.

I hope this resource helps you get your specials team on the same page where great behavior expectations are concerned! By the way, there's no need to purchase multiple copies. One purchase provides a license for your building, so feel free to share with your teammates.

Thanks for taking a look! Be sure to follow That Library Girl to hear news about new resources, updates, freebies, sales, and more!
