Classroom Behavioral Expectations and Rewards/Consequences

Due to the unique needs of the students in the our classroom, behavioral expectations are individualized, however, we do have individual and class plans.  

Behavior Plans

Individual Behavior Plan-  Each student has a chart on his/her desk.  Stickers are given for work completion, positive interactions with classmates, getting to their seats on time, and any other positive behavior that needs reinforcement.  When a student completes his/her chart they may choose a prize from the prize box. When a student has completed 10 charts he/she receives a $5.00 gift card of their choice. If the student fills 25 charts, he/she receives a $10.00 gift card of their choice.

Class Behavior Plan- The class has a marble jar.  When all of the students are working or following directions, a marble is but in a jar for each student.  When the class reaches the designated number a reward is given.
