These Restorative Practices or Restorative Justice behavior reflection sheets are for students to use when they have broken a rule/failed to meet a school expectation. It is particularly powerful when someone else was harmed due to their actions. It's perfect when the teacher/administrator/dean doesn’t have time in the moment to have a discussion with the student but can talk through the sheet with them later. They are also great for students who have trouble thinking when they’re in the ‘hot seat’ and do better processing alone with a think sheet first.

This resource includes:

• Choices/Behavior Think Sheet in three different developmental options: visual, selected response, and fill-in-the blank

• Two example completed sheets for each type

• PowerPoint for teaching students how to use the think sheets

• Scaffolding instructions to help students complete the forms independently

• Apology/restitution note forms

• I-message note form

• Restorative conference questions (in elementary friendly terms) lanyard cards

• Restorative conference questions and de-escalation script in front/back poster reminder

From the reviews:

"I was looking for a tool like this for the longest time! I am so happy that I found it because it has been a lifesaver to use in my classroom. All of my students are at different functioning ability levels and I love that the think sheets are differentiated. Its gotten to the point where the students ASK for a think sheet before I even have to give them one. Love it"

"I am currently a restorative practices coach for an elementary and middle school and have been a restorative practices facilitator for years. This is one of the very best RP resources that I have found that really gets to the root of what we are doing with kids working through conflict, reflection, needs, and accountability. With our staff, I am very clear with them that these are a great tool to be used alongside, not in place of, processing with an adult. It's a great guide through the restorative conversation process and definitely helps ease student anxiety so they know what o expect from a conversation!"
