This product is a preventative and positive approach to behavior management for elementary grades 3-5. It is intended to be used in conjunction with any behavior management system for students who need more support in following classroom rules and directions or for those who have identified behavioral issues.
Students are a part of the process in coming up with behavior goals and guidelines and therefore they have a stake in changing their behavior for the better. The system is individualized to each student’s unique area of need and can be implemented alongside any behavior management system currently in place.
The worksheets included have been highly effective in helping students set goals and change negative behaviors such as being disrespectful, distracting others, physical aggression, etc.
Student Behavior Contract + Example: Along with the teacher, students come up with goals as well as motivating rewards and consequences to help them meet their goals. For students with severe behavior issues, we go over the contract at the very start of school each day to set up boundaries and expectations for the day.
Student Daily Reflection + Example: Using this worksheet, students reflect on their progress towards meeting their behavior goals each day. They also reflect on the successes and consequences they may have incurred as well as come up with a plan to have a better day the following day if needed. I review this with the student before they go home at the end of the day. Both a full sheet and paper-friendly half sheets are included.
Major Behavior Reflection: Students are asked to complete this reflection sheet if they’ve had trouble adhering to their behavior contract, warnings aren’t working, and/or if they’ve had a major behavioral issue. After completing and reviewing with the teacher, it is sent home to be signed by parents so they are aware of the details of what happened.
Behavior Tracking Log: This log helps the teacher keep track of the behaviors observed over time. The log can be useful in identifying patterns as well as documentation for parent conferences, SSTs, or IEP meetings.
Parent conference, SST, or IEP Classroom Observation Sheet: I’ve found this sheet to be incredibly helpful in organizing and presenting the observations and information I have on students when I go to a parent conference, SST, or IEP meeting.
