Behavior is an important aspect of every classroom. I encourage students to show his/her Bluestreak Pride each and everyday. In this classroom, I use Class Dojo for rewards and loss of privilege. Below you will find a more detailed explanation of my behavior systems.
Earned Free Choice Time
Each student in class will be able to earn free choice time every Friday afternoon. This time allows students to participate in activities of his/her choice. Students will earn free time by following the rules of the classroom. This year, I'll be incorporating Class Dojo, which is a fun program that allows me to give and take points for certain behaviors. Positive behavior associated with Bluestreak Pride will earn students points. If a student loses too many points, due to repeated disruptive behavior, earned free time may be taken away for that week. Continual disruptive behavior will be referred to the principal. I will always make every attempt to guide students before points are taken. It's my goal to make sure students are successful.
We have incorporated the Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS) to create a positive atmosphere school wide, and to streamline behavior and expectations. Each student in class will be given positive reinforcement by earning Bluestreak Pride tickets. Students earn tickets when I, or other school personnel, see a student demonstrating good/great behavior. The student will be learning about what it looks like to show Bluestreak Pride in daily lessons, as well as with modeling and practicing behaviors throughout the school, on buses, and at the playground. Each Friday, two students are selected to receive a certificate and prize out of the tickets earned throughout the week.
