This chart is recommended for school aged children (PreK-5th grades special day class students) who frequently cry on their morning and after school bus rides. Teachers and parents work together to manage the student’s behavior with the use of positive reinforcements.
Before using the chart, rewards and/or privileges should be established and agreed upon between the teacher, parents, and students. This includes rewards and/or privileges that can be earned at home and in school.
It may take some time before you see results, however with patience and consistency, this chart can be effective for reducing and/or eliminating student tears on the bus altogether.
