Mary Jane Freeman: Behaviour Expectations

Behavior Expectations

1. Be thoughtful and use kind words.
2. Be respectful of self, others, and property.
3. Be honest.
4. Be on time and on task.

Here are ways the inappropriate behavior is handled:

1. Practice

Students will practice doing the correct behavior.
Example: Poor choice: Running in the hall. The student will go back and walk.

2. Think Sheet

The Think Sheet is given for repeated behaviors or when a behavior is done against another person.
Students will complete a Think Sheet and answer three questions.

What did I do wrong?
What should I have done?
What will I do next time?
This sheet is signed by the parents and child.

3. Behavior Chart posted in classroom

Yellow card: Raise your hand to share
Blue card: Follow directions
Red card:  Stay in your seat when directed
Black card: Keep your hands to yourself
*  If the behaviors are repeated on a daily basis an email or call home will be given to parents.

4. Class Dojo

Online App that is used to communicate classroom activities, your child’s responsible actions, and behaviors that need to improve. Parents/guardians  will need to sign permission form to participate.

5. Personal Behavior Plan

Sometimes a behavioral plan will be written for an individual student. This is to help that student be accountable and change the unwanted behavior.
Personal behavior plans will be used for students who may struggle with one of the follow expectations: to stay on task, complete work, or peer relationships. The reward will be something that motivates this student individually.
