Student and Classroom Expectations
I expect that all of the students will come to school willing to learn. I also expect that the children will be encouraging and respectful to one another. I use a positive behavior program in my classroom. I implement this program with my personal interactions with the students, role playing, modeling behavior, and through stories. Students are encouraged to be problem solvers and to be responsible for the choices they make.
Should a child make a choice that is not conducive to learning, they will complete a reflection sheet. The reflection sheet will have several parts. First, your student will explain the choice they made. Next, they will determine how that choice made another person feel. Then, the student will describe a better choice they could've made. Finally, they will reflect on how they can right their wrong. This will help the students take responsibility for their choice,how to resolve the problem, and how to become productive citizens in our classroom.If a student becomes a threat to harm others they will be referred to the office and you will be notified.
