Here is my tried and true behavior management system that I have used in grades first through third grade. Most recently, I used this with a third grade class and it worked wonderfully. My students are well behaved and on task when I use this system! They really enjoy the structure of the program. I want to share how I use this plan with you and the printables you need to create this resource in your classroom. It includes two parts:
Mystery Star Student System and Fun Friday Award System Using the Whole Brain Teaching Scoreboard System.
Both Systems are explained to you in the set. I suggest you use both of these systems together. One focuses on an individual student behavior and the other focuses on whole class behavior and is modeled after the Whole Brain Teaching Scoreboard.
In this set I explain how I to use the printables in the classroom. All you have to do it read about the system to understand it. I believe it is very easy to start-up and understand. A few items to print and laminate and you are ready to go. When I took on a long-term substitute third grade position, I created these printables and had them printed and ready to go in less than an hour. That includes the time to laminate and cut! So if you are in a pinch—this should make you happy!!!
