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 WarningLevel 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.
