* These sheets are intended to allow students to reflect on the behavior by drawing or writing out their feelings in their native language in the blank space, depending on their needs.
* I use these sheets in my classroom after students have already received a verbal warning and a one-on-one conference with the teacher, but they may also be used to give students time to cool down.
* Make several copies of each sheet and place them in folders on the wall or at your behavior reflection station.
* Before calling home or referring a student to the office for repeated misbehavior, we allow them to write down what’s going on by choosing one of two sheets to fill out:
- “Straight Talk (Sé directo)” sheets could be used by students who find the material disengaging, are struggling to understand the way the material was explained, are experiencing bullying by other students, or are having difficulty connecting to you on a personal level.
- “Let it out (Desahógate)” could be used when students are experiencing personal issues that impact their behavior or classroom performance. This may include homework/classwork completion, interrupting the speaker, refusal to follow instructions and other minor but repeated behaviors.
