10 Behavior Consequences and Rewards: Hero Behavior Buckets Upon arrival to the classroom, students will move their bucket on the behavior board to the back of their card stack. – All students begin the day with a Green Card. – The Green Card means good behavior. – Students must monitor themselves and their behavior.

11 Behavior Consequences and Rewards: Hero Behavior Buckets ___________ ___________ : If behavior is disruptive to the classroom and our learning environment, students will be asked to move their green card to the back making the Yellow Card the front card. – Yellow Cards are the ‘caution’ card, and students will need to monitor themselves and their behavior. – EXAMPLES ARE:

12 Behavior Consequences and Rewards: Hero Behavior Buckets Red Card : If behavior continues to be disruptive, the yellow card is moved to the back making the Red Card the front card. – When a student moves to the RED Card, they will miss recess. – Parents will be notified at the end of the school day of the student’s behavior.

13 "With great power comes great responsibility" YOU have the power to make responsible choices every day, inside and outside the classroom.

14 Behavior Consequences and Rewards: Hero Behavior Buckets Students who do not make adjustments to their behavior will be moved to a BROWN card. – BROWN cards indicate a referral to the principal or SAC, or both (depending on behavior). Red = Miss Recess Brown = Referral and/or SAC REMEMBER!

15 Behavior Consequences and Rewards: Hero Behavior Buckets Students that have their green cards at the end of the day will receive a “Goodie Ticket”. 5 Goodie Tickets for the WEEK= 1 Hero Ticket which is worth 1 item from the Hero Bucket. Only five consecutive days will receive a Hero Ticket, non-consecutive days will start the Goodie Ticket count from zero.

16 Goodie, Hero and Superhero Tickets Students will have the opportunity to earn tickets that can be traded for prizes. Tickets are given for good deeds. The tickets have three stages: Goodie, Hero and Superhero. Tickets are not actual tickets but tally marks on the ticket count board. Tickets convert in multiples of five, for example, five Goodie Tickets equal one Hero Ticket. Five Hero Tickets equal one Superhero ticket. Tickets can be traded for items from the Hero Bucket or the Superhero Vault. Tickets are collected and counted by Mr. Colvin on the ticket count board (which is on display in the room).

17 Goodie, Hero and Superhero Tickets There are many ways that the student may earn tickets. Good deeds that are noted by another teacher or staff member earn one Hero Ticket. This may include: another teacher bragging about the behavior of the class in the hallway (which would earn all students present a Hero Ticket), staff member noting the help of a student (like helping in the lunchroom, library, music room or helping another student or staff member) or another good deed that is notable to a staff member. Students can earn one Goodie Ticket for each weekend day (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) that they have a completed reading log AND graphic organizer. Students can earn one Hero Ticket for five consecutive days that they stay on “Green” in their behavior bucket. Students can also be given a Ticket for outstanding behavior in the lunchroom or during specials if the teacher on duty gives them a good report.

18 Goodie, Hero and Superhero Tickets Goodie tickets only gain value when five of them are attained. Hero Tickets can be traded for items from the Hero Bucket. The Hero Bucket contains: pencils, erasers, plastic creatures, etc. Superhero Tickets can be traded for items from the Superhero Vault. Superhero Vault contains: puzzles, coloring/activity books, game card sets, etc. 5 Goodie Tickets = 1 Hero Ticket – 1 Hero Ticket = 1 item from the Hero Bucket 5 Hero Tickets = 1 Superhero Ticket – 1 Superhero Ticket = 1 item from the Superhero Vault

19 Morning Classroom Arrival Routine Students will remove coats and place backpacks in their locker BEFORE coming to class. All items for class need to be removed from their backpacks and lockers at this time: students will not be allowed to leave the classroom during the day to retrieve items from their lockers. Upon arrival to the classroom, students will: – change their Name Bucket, – turn in their homework and any school paperwork in the designated place, – go to their seat. Students will work on their bell work quietly while waiting to go to specials.

20 Classroom Procedures for lining up: Stand behind your chair quietly when the teacher calls for line leader. Line leader will always take their position at the front of the line and will set a good example for all others in line. Wait until the teacher or leader calls you to line up. When you line up, face forward with both hands behind your back or by your sides, quietly. The door holder will hold the door then stay at the end of the line until the class reaches the destination door, at which point the door holder will quickly and quietly move to the front of the line to hold the next door. When you enter the hallway, you are entering the “Quite Zone”…follow the hallway procedures. Use manners and thank the person who is holding the door open. If you are outside, line up as soon as the bell rings and wait quietly to enter the building. Be respectful to your classmates and keep your hands and feet to yourself.

21 Hallway Procedures The hallway is the “Quiet Zone”. There is no talking in the hall. Students are to walk on the right side of the hall in a single file line. Students walk with their hands behind their back or by their sides.

22 Restroom Procedures Take restroom breaks before school begins each morning and during designated classroom restroom breaks. Students will not use the restroom during instruction unless it is an emergency. If students have an emergency situation, the teacher needs to be notified immediately. The student will leave the classroom quietly and go to the restroom. Be as fast as possible. Return to the room quietly and return to your seat. Use this responsibility wisely! When it is not an emergency, and not during instructional time, students will be allowed to use the restroom or get a drink of water and will be required to take a hall pass with them

23 Water bottles, soda, or drinks of any kind, will not be allowed in the classroom.

24 Pencil Sharpening Students who need a sharpened pencil can get one from the teacher only with a pencil trade. Mr. Colvin has many sharpened pencils and will trade for dull or broken lead pencils.

25 Procedures for Daily Assignments: Always use the correct heading for all papers: Name, Date, Student #. Labeling papers correctly is important: any papers handed in with no name will be placed in the trash. Assignments will be listed on the board, and turned in to the appropriate bin. Papers handed in late will have points deducted for being late. Make-up assignments due to absences will need to be turned in to the appropriate bin.

26 ? ? SO, where exactly do you turn in your assignments?????

27 Math If students do not complete their math assignment during our classroom math time, they will have to complete it at home as homework. As a general rule, students will have math homework Monday-Thursday nights

28 Reading Students will complete an At-Home Reading Log. They will complete graphic organizers or reports on the books they read at home or during MIRP class time. If students do not turn in their At-Home Reading Log, or it is incomplete, they will miss their recess. – More specific instructions are on the At-Home Reading Log.

29 Spelling and Vocabulary Students will be given weekly spelling and vocabulary tests on Friday. Words will be sent home on Monday, and review materials will be sent home in their Homework Folder.

30 Homework Folders Homework will be sent home Monday-Thursday. There will most generally be Math homework every night. A Reading Log needs to be completed every night. – A Graphic Organizer will be completed when the book is finished or after reading several chapters. Graded assignments, newsletters, student behavior reports, and other paperwork will be sent home in the homework folder.

31 Classroom Jobs pencil sharpener: sharpens classroom pencils when needed (at the beginning or end of the day). meeter-greeter: answers the door with this greeting: “Hello. Welcome to Mr. Colvin's Classroom. How may I help you?” teacher helper/assistant : helps pass out or collect class supplies and papers when needed. line-leader: leads the line to the restroom, lunch, assemblies, or drills door holder: will hold the door then stay at the end of the line until the class reaches the destination door, at which point the door holder will quickly and quietly move to the front of the line to hold the next door when needed.

32 Remember… Name Date Student # No Name = PAPER IN TRASH = ZERO

33 Mr. Colvin’s Expectations for the Classroom and Life: Make good choices, and accept responsibility for the choices you make. Take care of yourself, your belongings, our classroom equipment, supplies, and our school. Respect yourself, your classmates, your teacher, and people you meet. Take care of the environment. Be neat and clean: do not make messes. Clean up messes that you make, and help others clean up when needed.

34 Classroom Pledge: I choose to take care of my business and myself. I choose to wait nice and quiet (at my desk or in line). I choose to behave in a manner that creates a positive learning environment. I choose to raise my hand when I would like a turn to talk or permission to leave my seat. I choose to think and compliment the positive and ignore the negative.
