Discipline Policy-- Behavior Management System
To Encourage Scholarly Behavior, teachers use the following system:
BEHAVIOR CLIP CHART
-Magenta: Super Student-WOW!
-Purple: Super Student
-Blue: Good Choices
-Green: Ready to Learn
-Yellow: Think About It
-Orange: Teacher’s Choice
-Red: Parent Contact
At this age, most children have a desire to do the right thing and please the adults around them. Mistakes do happen (to all of us!), but we try to acknowledge and reinforce only the desired behaviors. The following are a list of some of the rewards we might use:
1. Praise! Praise! Praise!
4. Positive Notes / Phone Call Home
5. Table Group Points
6. Class Marbles/fuzzies
2. Verbal Warning. This is just a reminder-we all make mistakes sometimes.
3. Move behavior clip on the Behavior Chart.
4. Conference with teacher. Sign the OOPS binder. The student will receive a “time to think about it” depending on the unwanted behavior and may miss a portion of their recess. Phone call or email home.
*Severe Disruption: this involves breaking the school’s rules (i.e. destroying school property, fighting, inappropriate language, and possession of weapons or drugs). The student will immediately go to the principal’s office.
