Behavior/Motivational Money Plan
Introduce rules to student: Discuss acceptable/unacceptable behavior.
1. Brainstorm with class basic classroom rules.
2. Try to keep them to 4 or 5 rules.
3. Have each student sign the rule sheet and then post it in the classroom. This promotes ownership and accountability.
4. We review and model our classroom rules daily, and throughout the year when needed.
Examples of Classroom Rules
* Cooperate with teacher and classmates
* Respect the rights and property of others
* Raise your hand---------------wait to be called on
* Carry out basic student responsibilities (see below)
Basic Student Responsibilities
* Keep track of your own books and assignments.
* Start your work on time and allow time to finish.
* Ask for help when you need it.
* Do your own work.
* Turn your work in on time.
* Accept responsibility for grades and other consequences.
Procedures to Consequences
1. Role-Model the correct behavior you want.
2. Encourage the student to try again with the correct behavior.
3. Catch the student using the skill correctly, and acknowledge the success.
4. $1.00 taken away (see next column).
5. Time Out at table---after timeout I will discuss with student what they can do the next time (problem solve). Also, a note is sent home:
This is to inform you that_______________ missed ______ minutes of class time today because he/she continued to disrupt the class after being asked to stop. The problem was handled at school and no further assistance is required at this time. Please indicate that you received this notice by signing and returning it with your child tomorrow. If you have any questions, please call or email.
6. If behavior is disruptive or consists a phone call home to discuss an action plan with parents.
This is an overview of my discipline policy. Other consequences may be used if they are appropriate for the behavior. Special teachers may have different policies for managing unacceptable behavior.
This is a group incentive system that holds students accountable, individually and collectively for how they use their time.
How It Works
1. Each student receives $10.00 monthly allowance. (Ledbetter's Loot)
2. Students are paid $1.00 for good behavior, staying on task, getting their books out quickly, lining up quietly, doing their homework, and many other good behaviors.
3. This system helps them make good choices and be responsible. It is a system that is an incentive, a reward, and a logical consequence for off-task behavior. It teaches students how to cooperate, be responsible, and use their time wisely.
4. Students want it and will work hard to earn those dollars.
