Discipline Plan for C-1
Mrs. Kupfer Kindergarten Classroom
Our Classroom Rules are:
· Do your best
· Be kind
· Raise you hand
· Hands and feet to yourself
-Happy comments and praise are vital in a class full of young students. Lucky Bucks are randomly rewarded for good choices, helpful actions and responsible behavior. When a student collects five Lucky Bucks they may choose to buy something from the basket on Fridays. Cheering for one another is something that keeps us united and builds a positive learning comminuty.
This happens when rules are broken:
1- Verbal warning from the teacher
2- Card turn to blue & miss 5 minutes of recess
3- Card turn to yellow & miss another 5 minutes of recess
4- Card turn to red & miss 5 more minutes of recess & a parent will be called or notified in writing
-Disruptive behavior such as walking around the classroom, singing, talking or noise making during quiet working time will result in a warning and a card turn.
-Failure to follow directions with classroom procedures such as lining up, raising hand, moving to learning area quietly etc. will receive a warning before a card is turned.
-Unkind behavior such as hitting, pushing, mean words or faces will receive a warning and a teaching moment before cards are turned. That usually solves the problem.
-If behavior is so extreme that it does not allow learning to happen for the other children in the classroom, the child will be removed from the classroom and placed in a buddy classroom until he/she can enter and participate calmly.
I have and will continue to teach proper classroom behavior. Most children respond to warnings, explanations and expectations. Some children require more help to learn proper behavior. I am a very patient woman!
