CLASSROOM BEHAVIORAL EXPECTATIONS: CONSEQUENCES/REWARDS
My objective is for students to eventually regulate their own behavior. For a visual aid students
are given a tally mark for positive behaviors (thumbs up) and inappropriate behaviors (thumbs
down). These tally sheets are sent home every day. More thumbs up equate to a happy face.
More thumbs down equate to a sad face. Five happy faces in a week entitle the student to ice
cream at the park on Friday. One sad face in a week the student stays in the room on Friday with
my teacher assistant and works on social skills. The most successful students are the ones whose
parents follow through at home with rewards and consequences for the daily behavioral reports.
Classroom Rules:
Raise Your Hand Quietly
Listen to the Teacher
Be Quiet When Someone Else is Talking
Finish Your Work
Be Nice to Everyone
Hands and Feet to Yourself
CITIZENSHIP
Students who earn outstanding citizenship are those that follow directions, get along with others,
and always try their best.
