What educators are saying
Looking for a way to revamp your behavior management, build classroom community, and encourage positive choices in your classroom? This Positive Behavior System is right for you!
This bundle includes a trifecta of 3 behavior management resources:
Behavior Focus Meetings
A classroom community game changer- 16 Weeks of Behavior Focus Meetings to transform your behavior management. Foster a sense of classroom community with good choices and positive behaviors at the core.
What is a Behavior Focus Meeting?
-A time for teachers and students to discuss ways they can positively impact the classroom community. A quick meeting at the start of the week that boosts morale, fosters friendship, and holds students accountable for their choices. Overall, it is a time for students to focus their efforts on building character and developing good habits that can reach beyond the classroom.
Please see the preview for a closer look at the Behavior Focus Meeting resource included in this download
What is included?
-16 Weeks of Behavior Focus Meeting Prompts in full page size and as chart titles
-In depth Teacher Guide Focus with all prompts, suggested discussion/talking points, and read aloud recommendations for each
-Editable bubbles for you to insert options for students to choose throughout the week
-Weekly/Daily Reflection sheets
-Bulletin board tools ('Behavior Focus Wall' letters + 'This Week's Focus'/'Today's Focus' heading)
Here’s How it Works:
1. Choose a focus prompt. The prompts can be introduced in any order. Decide if you want to use the single page or chart titles.
2. Decide if you want to provide options for students to choose from, then type them into the editable bubbles provided in this download. OR, you can choose to come up with these options collectively.
3. Introduce the behavior focus of the week. Read a suggested read aloud (or another one that you prefer), and use the events from the story, along with the suggested discussion points within the Teacher Guide of this resource, to help students choose what they will focus on this week.
4. Check in with students as the week goes on to see if they’re making progress on their focus. Use teachable moments to remind them of opportunities when they can achieve their goal. Perhaps do another read aloud! :)
5. On Friday, students complete the weekly reflection. Have a mini-celebration to recognize all the good choices students made. Some students can share their successes, touch on how the focus made them more mindful in their daily decision making and what they will take with them from this experience.
*Tip: The more you buy into it, the more your students will!
A scale from 1-4 that outlines daily expected behaviors.
In this download, you will also receive:
-A parent letter, explaining what each number of the scale represents
-4 half-sheet positive, encouraging posters
-Monthly recording sheet to hold students accountable, share with parents, and keep records of behaviors
-Individual check-in charts for student desks
You can choose how you want to use the Behavior Scale! In my classroom, the behavior scale is displayed on the front board for students (and myself) to refer to throughout the day. Students aim for a "3" on the scale, which means "Meets Expectations"... some days students will go above and beyond, achieving a "4", while other days students need to reflect on their behavior, receiving a "2". I write these numbers in students' planners at the end of each day, but you could use this resource in a number of ways!
The 5 P's represent a set of expectations for your classroom. They are:
This resource includes the 5 P's with student-friendly explanations/examples, each on a half sheet of paper so they can be displayed anywhere, plus a heading for your display. The 5 P's can be an extension of your classroom rules, or they can BE your classroom rules! They are comprehensive and cover necessary student behaviors for successful and productive school days.
