Classroom Management Plan
Positive reinforcement such as individual, team, and whole class incentives will be implemented. In our classroom, praise, classroom money, positive notes, hugs, and smiles will be utilized.
Personal / Social Expectations:
The learner will…
*Practice good listening skills.
*Cooperatively work with others and stay on task.
*Approach a task with flexibility and inventiveness.
*Be responsible for completing and turning in all work.
*Be responsible for their actions.
*Be kind to everyone!
Dojo Points/Classroom Money: Students can earn Dojo Points by displaying excellent behavior, completing extra activities, and/or by completing their homework. Students will be given a dollar for each point they get during the week. They will be able to spend their money in our classroom on some fun incentives such as, sitting at the teacher’s desk choosing something out of the treasure box, and many other fun things.
Classroom Behavior Plan: I will be helping them to make good choices at CDS. If a child has made a poor choice, I will ask them four questions which will lead them to doing the right thing. If the child continues to make a poor choice, I will have that child move to the safe spot or back table in our classroom. At the safe spot, the child will have time to reset, and then join us when they are ready. If they are disruptive there, they will move to a buddy classroom, or the principal or counselor’s office. Any time the child misses class in the safe spot, may result in work to complete at home from that day.
Behavior Log: I will be keeping a behavior log each day. It will be on a clipboard at my desk. I will track behaviors by marking which classroom rule the student is not following. I will keep track of the rules they are not following and the number of times they have not followed rules that day. These will be recorded on Class Dojo, which you have access to as a parent, to check anytime.
*Please note that some behaviors will result in an automatic office referral. Such behaviors include, but are not limited to bad language, physical behaviors towards themselves or others, and defiance.
