    Post your rules and stick to them! Have a classroom management plan in place before you go to school the first day! Post the rules and consequences. It might take a while to work but after about 2 weeks it works. I use a chart and mark what the kids did wrong and the consequences. I award a "paycheck" at the end of the week based on $100.00. At the end of the week the kids can buy things out of the treasure chest.

    I also use a level system that gives them a chance to earn privileges. When they are marked on the chart, they lose about 3 percentage points out of 100.


    BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT PLAN

    In order to give your child the quality education that they deserve, we will be operating under the following discipline plan which is posted at each entryway in our classroom to SLASH problems:

    1. Stay in your seat or work area.
    2. Listen to the person speaking and follow directions.
    3. Arrive on time with all necessary materials.
    4. Speak when recognized or when in work groups.
    5. Hands, feet, and objects-Keep to yourself!

    The following will be the menu of consequences for poor behavior / work habits will also be posted next to the rules at each entry:

    1. Warning
    2. “See me.”
    3. Isolation/time-out
    4. Privilege loss
    5. Call home
    6. Go to the office

    Our class will be spending time each day learning and practicing appropriate behaviors and work habits. In this way, every child will know what is expected of him/her. Verbal or physical abuse to peers will not be tolerated. Our direct teacher instruction method will provide the opportunity for your child to grow and succeed both academically and socially. Please review these rules and consequences with your child, sign on the line below and return the bottom portion to me.

    My child and I have read and reviewed the Behavior Management Plan.

    BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT


    LEVEL SYSTEM

    Students earn points each class period. The number of points earned is averaged daily. Students need to meet a set percentage based on their level in order to participate in the end of the day privileges. If a student does not meet his/her percentage during one class period, s/he may have the opportunity to redeem their behavior during the next class period. Level of privilege is conducive to behavior. Students must be above level one to participate in Friday’s privileges. Points are earned for following the class rules and good behavior. Points are lost by insubordination; disruptions to the learning environment, unruly behavior, name calling, being tardy, abuse of bathroom or borrowing materials.

    CHECKING ACCOUNT

    I will award points into dollar values to be “deposited” into the student’s “checking account.” The dollars can be spent once a week for students on LEVEL 2 or higher on treasures from the “Davy Jones’ Locker” by writing checks and keeping proper balances in the check book The students will also be able to increase their deposits by earning bonus dollars during class time for good behavior and answering questions properly.
