Classroom Management

  • Behavior Management

    1st and 2nd offenses – Students get a nonverbal and/or verbal warning from the teacher, i.e. “_______I need your eyes up here and your voice off please.”

    3rd offense – Students go to the "take a break" chair by the carpet. While here, the students will set a timer and reflect on why they had to take a break. The student is welcomed back to the group when the timer has finished. **If the student is being sent to this chair for a Calm Down Break, then they would go through the following steps: Breathe (Take 5 deep breaths), Reflect (Think about the situation), Emotions (How do you feel?), Access (Access your strategies), and Know (Know your options).

    4th offense – If the student is still not able to be calm and follow along with the class, they will be sent to the “Buddy Room” – The kindergartener will be sent next door to take a break in Mr. Schneider's room. The student will reflect while in this room and be sent back by Mr. Schneider when he sees they are calm and ready to return or after 3-5 mins. I will reflect with the student when they are welcomed back into our classroom.

    5th offense (serious offenses)-The student will be referred to the behavior team.
