Classroom Managemant

Behavior Expectations: There are certain behavior expectations and procedures for every classroom. I feel that it is very important to let the students be involved in the rule making process. On our first day of school, we all work together to create the classroom rules.

This is a postive way to get the students involved and to make them take ownership for their choices.

I have high expectations for my students and I think it is important to give a great deal of positive reinforcement for appropriate behavior. I give table points to encourage positive group behavior and effort. I put student's names on a happy face board for positive independent recognition. Students are rewarded daily and table groups that have worked well all week will also be rewarded with BRAVO BUCKS :). I know that all parents want what is best for their children and want them to learn appropriate school behavior. If I foresee a serious problem developing, I will contact you and make you aware of the situation. I am a very relaxed and patient person and therefore many situations or minor difficulties don't have to go home with the student. If you disagree with this, please contact me let me know if you have a plan you think will work etterf ro your child. You know your child best. I feel that with enough recognition of positive behaviors, our classroom family will excel.
