This is a visual guide for students that explains the Stop Light Behavior Plan System using faces. To begin using the system, I suggest starting with telling students in order to earn a reward at the end of the day (art time, a favorite toy, etc), they need to stay on green 4 period out of the entire day. If they go on yellow for a period or two out of the day, but were good the rest of the day they can earn their reward. But if a severe behavior occurs where they have to go on red (such as hitting or any severe behavior), then they lose their reward. It's important that if a student is a on green for a minimum of 4 period out of the day, even if the rest of the periods of the day they went on yellow, they should still get the reward. This is important because if they get a minimum of 4 periods of green to begin with and experience the reward, they experience the feeling of working towards something. As time goes on, you can increase the amount of period (5 periods on green, 6 periods on green, etc).
*Note: The red stop light says "note home or CIT". You can change that depending on your consequence for severe behavior. It can be a note home. CIT is what the dean's office at my school is called so thats why it says CIT but you can alter it to the principals office or whatever is applicable to you.
