Product Description

Even though teachers work hard to make their classrooms a positive place, there are occasions when detention is a necessary consequence for inappropriate behavior. To keep the onus where it belongs (on the student), use these compositions to help reteach students how to properly behave!

These compositions are like letters for the student to copy that explains their misdeed, why it is inappropriate and how to correct it for the future. Then there is a place for the student and the student's parent/guardian to sign.

Students who have already been given a warning and a phone call home, are assigned these compositions as a take-home detention. There's no reason for detention to take up a teacher's time! Plus these are great for documenting your attempts to help correct a student's behavior.

There are 10 EDITABLE compositions including:

★ Tardiness

★ Cheating on a test

★ Cheating by copying someone else's work

★ Not following directions

★ Disrespect

★ Improper behavior with a substitute

★ Skipping class

★ Disrupting the class

★ Inappropriate language (cursing)

★ Dress Code

You'll get a copy of each of these in 2 versions: Word and editable PDF (just click edit and then edit text & images)

I hope these help you with your classroom management!
