The Discipline Dozen is a set of twelve classroom characters that represent ten of the least favorable/most favorable behaviors that primary (or any) teachers encounter on a daily basis. The ten "bad" behaviors covered are yelling, tattling, being bossy, interrupting, not sharing, last to complete work, being rude or mean, cutting things you aren't supposed to cut (hair, clothes, folders), asking unnecessary questions (When are we going to lunch? go home, play?), complaining/whining. The last two characters in the dozen have traits that every teacher LOVES! These "Cool" kids always listen and do as their teacher tells them to, and they have lots of friends because they share and are very nice. Each character corresponds with a different color, so it is a great way to discuss colors and behaviors.
I have used something similar to this for 13 years, and I can't find an updated version anywhere....SO, I've created a newer set for my classroom, and thought I would share. I LOVE the Discipline Dozen, and I refer to them all year long.....the kids do too!
This packet includes:
1.) 12 Full color posters of each character to display in your room
2.) 12 mini explanations/stories of each character and what behavior they have that does not make the teacher happy AND mini stories of the two "COOL" kids with traits that the teacher LOVES.
3.) 12 page (black & white) mini booklet to print and copy for each child to color and take home to share with their family, The mini booklet says "I AM NOT....Slow Poke Pink, Bossy Blue, Tattle Tan, Snip Snap Silver......etc." "I AM COOL CADE" or "I AM COOL CARLEY"
