Behavior Plan

We will begin using a colored “clip chart” to monitor our behavior and classroom choices.  Your child will have a clip in the classroom that they will physically move up or down the chart, depending on their choices.  Please keep in mind that your child may not move every single day! In order to move up, students must go above and beyond in their behavior choices. The consequences for moving down levels will be determined by the student’s needs and actions. The chart below explains how the clip-chart works.

Purple - Super Successful Students!

Students who reach the purple level will be rewarded for their positive choices and receive a treasure from the prize box.

Pink - Yay! Way to go!

Students who make positive choices will receive recognition as they move up the chart. They are one step closer to having outstanding classroom behavior!

Green - Ready to learn!

Everyone starts the day “Ready to Learn”! Students can “clip up” or “clip down” throughout the day depending on their behavior choices.  

Yellow - Please think about it!

Students who receive a warning will move to yellow.  This serves as a reminder to students to think about the choices they are making.

Red – Parent Contact

Students who continue to make poor choices will move to red and have a consequence determined by the student’s poor choices (example: losing 5 minutes of recess). Parents will be contacted by either a note in the student’s folder or a phone call/email home.

Pot of GoldPot of Gold
In addition to rewarding students for their individual choices, the class as a whole will also be rewarded for positive behaviors.  When the entire class is making good choices (working quietly, showing good line behaviors, following directions, receiving compliments from other teachers/staff, etc.), they will earn some "gold" for the pot. When we fill up the pot, the class will get to vote on a fun activity as their reward (pajama day, bring a stuffed animal to school, treat day, etc.)  This helps develop a sense of community in our classroom because we all have to work together in order to fill up the pot with gold.

While I love rewarding students for all of their good choices, I understand that sometimes students have a bad day and don't always make the right choice.  In these cases, students will receive verbal reminders, modeling, circle talks, and sometimes loss of a preferred activity depending on the behavior.  If a student is really struggling to make good choices, I will contact the parents by email or phone so we can work together to help that child be more successful.

I'm looking forward to helping your child succeed both academically and socially in our classroom!
