• Classroom Expectations

    First, the children will learn the purpose of classroom expectations and develop the idea that our classroom is a community with the common purpose of learning, growing, and becoming friends

    I expect the students to BE RESPECTFUL, BE RESPONSIBLE, and BE SAFE.

    The second facet of the discipline plan includes the logical consequences that may occur when a student is not meeting expectations. Examples of logical consequences include time-out away from a classroom activity for class disruptions or bothering other children, spending recess time completing work,cleaning or repairing damaged property,or written and/or verbal apologies, for aggressive behavior or ridicule towards other children. This list is not inclusive since it is impossible to predict all incidents of misbehavior that may occur during the year. The idea is for consequence to related and meaningful to the behavior and act as a solution or restitution for the problem. If classroom rules are severely or persistently broken, parents will be contacted. 

    Finally discipline includes praise. Our fourth grade classroom will focus on positive behaviors with lots of positive reinforcement. Praising students when they have contributed positively to the classroom environment is also a disciplinary "tactic". Students need recognition not only for positive reinforcement but for building self esteem and self worth. All students will receive praise when appropriate.
