Classroom "Bee"havior Rules


     Our classroom discipline plan helps every student receive guidance in making good decisions about his/her behavior.  In doing this, the children are given the opportunity to learn in a positive, nurturing classroom environment.  It is an important skill for each child to develop self-discipline and good work habits, resolve conflicts peacefully and think independently.   Your child deserves the most positive educational climate possible for his/her growth.  



1. Follow directions the first time given.
2. Keep hands, feet, and negative comments to yourself,
 3. Be kind to other children and adults in the classroom.  Show respect.

4. Take good care of class materials and clean up things when finished.

5. Always walk in the hallways and classroom.
6. Raise your hand when you need to share something.
 7. Use soft voices in the classroom, save loud voices for outside.

     In order to encourage students to follow these rules and make good choices about
their behavior, I like to praise the children for their efforts in fun and creative ways. 
 I will reward consistent good behavior with a Good Listener Card, positive note or phone call home, extra free time, being a special helper, extra computer time, stickers, or rewards.

The other part of our discipline plan involves logical consequences that occur when class rules are broken. Examples of logical consequences may include: 

~  time away from the class for class disruptions or bothering other children

~  cleaning or repairing damaged property
~  written or verbal apologies for unkind behavior toward others
~  walking back to the starting point and walking (instead of running) in the building

     My goal is for the consequence to be related to the misbehavior and act as a solution to the problem.  If classroom rules are severely or persistently broken, parents will be contacted with a note, phone call, or conference.  A child may be referred to the principal when the behavior prevents the rest of the class from working in a safe and positive learning environment.
