Behavior Reflection Sheet | Behavior Management | Reflection Tool
Help students reflect on their choices through the day while building a strong home-school connection. At the end of the day, students complete the behavior sheet reflecting on their choices either positive or negative. Parents review the form and return back with feedback, if necessary. A simple, free form that works well for both addressing negative behaviors and encouraging positive ones.
About this resource, teachers have said:
“Perfect tool for encouraging and enabling (as well as teaching) students to take ownership for their learning and behavior.”
“This is perfect for my class this year! Thank you for sharing such a nice, neat, simple form. I need this for just a couple of my buddies and this will make the end of my day run more smoothly! Thank you!”
“I use this as a tier 1 intervention for students who are heading towards CICO. It works perfectly. I love how the responsibility is on them.”
A little background…
In my school, we have a behavior system that uses tallies. Students receive a tally when they break one of our rules. We have a structured system of consequences in place for when students receive three or more tallies in a day whereby parents are contacted, principals become involved, etc.
However, there are times when a student has a rough day, but doesn’t earn enough tallies to receive any type of formal consequence. Typically I would call home and speak to parents or guardians, but there are days when I’m short on time or simply have too many phone calls to make.
I created this form to help out on those hectic days, but it became a staple any time a student had a particularly difficult day. The sheet asks students to identify the areas they had difficulty with, which forces them to be thoughtful about their actions and specific about exactly what went wrong. Then, they must decide how they can improve their choices the following day.
When completed, the form is stapled into students’ agendas so that it can be signed by an adult that night and checked by me the following day.
I also wanted students to reflect on positive choices in order to encourage more of those throughout the day. This resource includes sheets for positive reinforcement as well.
Two main versions are included – half sheets for older students and full sheets with more space to write for younger students.
Looking for other ways to help manage behaviors in the classroom?
A quick and simple way to redirect attention from what’s negative to what is positive in your room. Students love having their good deeds noticed and soon you will see your board overflowing with praise!
Students complete the sheet when they are struggling, but before they have lost control. It helps them to reflect on why they are upset and how to make better choices. Two versions of the form are included – one for younger students with space to draw and one for older students with lines for writing.
