CLASS RULES AND DISCIPLINE
Your child deserves the most positive educational climate possible for his or her growth. In order for this to happen each day, we will be using the Stoplight Behavior Plan. This plan provides clear expectations for behavior in which the students fully understand the consequences of their actions. It also provides a way to reward students who consistently display good behavior. The plan and our classroom rules are outlined below.
Each day, all of the children’s names begin on the green light.
name will remain on the green light.
To the yellow light to remind them to slow down and to think about what they are doing.
Child moves his or her name to the red light to let them know that they need to stop and think about the rules.
The classroom rules are as follows:
There will be a calendar attached to your child’s Take Home Folder each month that will be used to track his/her behavior. If they stay on the green light all day they will receive a stamp. If they have to move to yellow or red, the day will be marked with a Y or Rand the rule number that was broken will be noted. (There will be a quick reference guide of the rules on the calendar) To encourage children to follow rules, at the end of the month, if he/she stayed on green everyday he/she will get to choose a prize from the Prize Box. A “Free Day” will be given in September as the students will be adjusting to the rules. If a child has continuous difficulty in following classroom rules, an individual behavior plan will be set up. We will discuss and model each of the rules in class to ensure that they are understood. Please review them again with your child and do not hesitate to call if you have any questions about this plan.
