The students in our classroom are expected to follow the PBIS school rules. They are to be respectful, responsible, and a problem solver.
Our classroom uses a behavior clip chart. Every student starts out the day Ready to Learn (green). They move up or down depending on the choices they make. Where a student ends the day on the clip chart is recorded in ClassDojo. Each part of the clip chart is explained below.
Outstanding (pink): This level is reserved for extraordinary behavior and will not be given out loosely. This is special. Students receive a gem on their clip when they reach this level.
Great Job (purple): This level is achieved when students have made several good choices throughout the day.
Good Day (blue): When students make good choices and try their best, they move to this level.
Ready to Learn (green): This is where students start each day. This is an acceptable level to stay at.
Warning (yellow): Students move to this level as a warning that they need to follow the classroom rules.
Think About It (orange): If a student moves to this level, I will choose an appropriate consequence. This could be a time out, a loss of recess, a loss of privileges, or whatever is logical for the choice.
Parent Contact (red): If a student reaches this level, I will make contact with the parent. This could be through ClassDojo, email, or a phone call. An appropriate consequence will also be assigned.
