Our Classroom behavior rules are listed on the following posters. If a student breaks a rule they place a colored stick in their behavior envelope. We all need reminders from time to time so students will not get a stick until they have been reminded to follow a rule three or more times. For example if Mrs. Grable has been reminded to keep her hands to herself three times she will need to put a red stick in her envelope. I encourage you to talk to your students about how thier day went. My rule of thumb here is if you haven't heard from me about your student's behavior they are ok. However please feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns.
We will spend a great deal of time this year building a sense of community in our classroom as well as our school. Students will be guided through restorative communication when issues arise. My goal is to help them build a sort of verbal toolbox to use in their interactions with each other so they may respectfully communicate thier opinions, feelings, needs and insights......respectfully.
