Expectations Behavior Expectations I am Responsible I am Respectful I am Safe Appropriate Behavior We are here to learn. Therefore I will not do anything to keep the teacher from teaching and anyone from learning. By acting this way I am taking charge of my future.
Classroom Procedures Rewards/Consequences Behavior Chart Table points This system is used to reinforce appropriate behavior. I award table points to table groups who are following instructions and demonstrating appropriate behavior. At the end of the week, the table with the most points is rewarded with a homework pass and or special privileges during the following week. Privileges include things like, lining up first, choosing the fun Friday activity etc….
