• Classroom Behavior Expectations
    Consistent expectations and clear consequences are a way to establish a safe and effective learning environment.  I find students love clear expectations!  I want to let you know what to expect from the behavior management system the third grade team chose to use this year.
    Your child will start on "Ready to Learn" each day.  Your child will move his/her clip up the chart for positive behavior choices and down the chart for negative behavior choices.  The best part is students can always choose to make positive choices to move back up the chart!
    At the beginning of each month a behavior calendar will be sent home to let you know of your child's choices each day.  Colored boxes show where your child's clip ended for each day.  Please sign that you have seen the calendar and return it to school.  You may want to have your own consequences and rewards at home too!
    Pink = Outstanding Leader!!!  (Above and beyond!!) 
    Purple = Great job!!  (Great choices) 
    Blue = Good job! (Good choices)
    Green = Ready to learn!
    Yellow = Verbal warning.
    Orange = Second warning and consequence (Poor choice)
    Red = Warned multiple times (Poor choices that disrupted classroom learning or broke a non-negotiable safety rule) 
    Students will color a circle on the Behavior Calendar at the end of each day that shows where their clip ended for the day.  Any student who receives outstanding leader will receive a special coupon.  Five "Outstanding Leader" coupons admit your child into the "Outstanding Leader Hall of Fame!"
    We also have a marble jar that is used to recognize when the class as a whole is doing a great job!  We need to work as a team to fill our marble jar.  When the marble jar is full, we will vote on a prize to celebrate our success together. 
    If you have any questions about our classroom management system, please feel free to contact me.  Thank you for your support of our system.  I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
