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 Stoplight Behavior Plan allows us to not only redirect negative behavior, but to also reward positive behavior. The plan and our classroom rules are outlined below.
Each day, all of the children’s names begin on the green light.
The classroom rules are as follows:
There will be a calendar inside your child’s take home binder 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 R and 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 the rules, at the end of the month, if he/she has stayed on green everyday he/she will get to choose a prize from our treasure chest. 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.
