Behavior Management Plan
Each student begins the day on the green “Ready to Learn” card. Students following the rules will keep his/her magnet on the green card or move up to the blue, purple, or teal cards. These are the three positive behavior cards above “Ready to Learn”. If a student ends up on a positive behavior card, they will receive an incentive. A student who does not follow the rules may be asked to move his/her magnet to the yellow “Think about it” card. This is only a warning. It gives the student a chance to reflect and change his/her behavior. If improvement is made the student will be able to move his/her magnet in a positive direction!
On the other hand, if the student’s behavior does not improve, he/she will be asked to move his/her magnet to the orange “Make Better Choices” card. Any time a student goes to the orange card there will be a consequence, normally a missed recess. Students on the orange card may "move up" if behavior changes.
Continued negative behavior could result in a student moving his/her magnet to the red or "Parent Contact" card. Red card consequences include loss of a recess and a note, phone call, or email to the parent.
Students who show positive behavior will be rewarded and encouraged for their behavior. Each third grade teacher will offer special rewards to their students for positive behavior. There will also be monthly rewards, quarterly rewards, school-wide rewards, and unannounced rewards for students who are showing positive behavior. We want all students to choose to be safe, be respectful, and be responsible.
