Mrs. Smith's classroom expectations - I have high expectations of each student and their behavior while they
are at school. I will consistently review these expectations with the
children. I expect them to show respect to one another, adults, and
our school property.
Our classroom will use a clip chart to monitor behavior. A clip chart is a
great tool that allows students to be rewarded for positive behaviors,
while discouraging negative behaviors. Each student will have a clip
with his or her name on it. Everyone will start on green at the
beginning of each day, and clips can be moved up and down throughout
the day based on behavior. I have briefly described what happens on
Pink (super student) - Students who reach pink will be given 4 punches on their reward punch card.
Purple (great job) - Students are able to move to this level for
continuing to display great behavior. Students will be given 3 punches on their reward punch card.
Blue (good choices) - Students are moved to blue for showing that
they are making the right behavior decisions. Students will be given 2 punches on their reward punch card.
Green (ready to learn) - This is the level students start the day on.
This is a good level to end the day on as well. Students will be given 1 punch on their reward punch card.
Yellow (think about it) - Sometimes we need to pause and think about
our actions. This is a warning but no punches are given on their reward punch card.
Orange (teacher’s choice) - Students who continue to display poor
behavior will move down to this level. Students may be given 5 minutes
silent lunch, walk a lap at recess, or other similar consequence.
Red (parent contact) - Once students are on this level, parents will be
notified via note or phone call. It is possible that a visit to the
Principal’s office might also be in order.
