Behavioral Expectations


Classroom Discipline/Rewards

 believe in using positive reinforcement to promote good behavior.  In my classroom I use a “Clip Up” behavior management system.  This systems allows students to move up the behavior spectrum throughout the day.

Outstanding- student made a good choice

Great Job- student made a good choice

Good Day- student made a good choice

Ready to Learn- all students begin each day here

Think About It- teacher’s warning and/or redirection; an email to
                         parents may be needed 
based on the incident

If students “Clip Up, even once, throughout the day, they get a ticket to put in a basket for a weekly raffle. 

I also do a whole class reward system.  When I see the WHOLE class working together or showing good behavior in some way I reward them with a "Team Ton" ticket. When they've earned a predetermined amount of tickets, we have a student-selected party to celebrate their good behavior.

Finally, our specials teachers are always looking to give my students compliments.  Once students have spelled out the word, COMPLIMENT, a small token of appreciation is shown.
