FISH! Philosophy Capturing Kids Hearts (CKH) Social Contract Hand Signals Four Questions Consequences Economy and Discipline

3 CKH Four Questions for Dealing with Misbehavior
What are you doing? What are you supposed to be doing? Are you doing it? What are you going to do about it?

4 Classroom Consequences for Misbehavior
Level Green = “Good Day”.  Everyone starts out on green each day. Level Yellow = Student  receives Verbal Warning Level Orange = Student meets with teacher and misses part of recess. Level Red = Student fills out a Responsibility Form to be signed by a parent or guardian and returned. Student calls parent and misses recess.  Level Blue = Additional inappropriate behavior will result in a visit to the principal in the office.  If a child is consistently being placed on level yellow, red, or blue, a phone call home and a possible parent/teacher conference will result.  If you are hearing from me regarding your child’s behavior, they have had many opportunities to change their behavior.
