5th Grade Classroom Behavior Plan

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I'm moving up from 1st to 5th next year and would like some ideas on what works with 5th graders. Right now I use a "Happy face chain" that is made with different colors and the kids move their clip and there are consequences. In addition to this I hand out tickets when they are doing a good job and we have a raffle and prize box on Friday. Would the tickets still work with 5th graders? Do I need them? Ideas? I'd like to have my system in place when the year starts so that I can start going over procedures from day 1

Ok the happy face chain can change into a chain of paper clips. Check out Fred Jones "Tool for Teaching" The tickets can work just don't baby-fy the process. 5th graders will respond just KNOW you must get it clear to them their behavioral expectations are that of a fifth grader. Don't let them have too much rope it could hang YOU. Being lenient too soon will bite you in the tush. You can be firm and friendly. Know when to turn it off and on.

Email me and I can send you lots of things to look over.

I will start you out with these sites:

Thanks for the sites, those are some great ones! I loved the classroom cash on one with income tax returns the kids file each trimester. I just might try that one, looks fun!

that I can e-mail to you if you want. I sent it out last year and received a lot of positive feedback as well as new ideas that I added in. Let me know if you prefer that I attach the document (my procedures) to this or e-mail you separately.

Hi,

Do you have a copy of your behavior log? I would like to use some kind of record of student behavior that the students have to fill out themselves.

Thanks, Niki

P.S. Also thank you to everyone for their expectations and behavior ideas! They are very helpful!

RE: Behavior Log
Old 05-20-2007, 07:42 AM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #12

The behavior log is real simple. The behavior log is simply a spiral notebook each child is given several pages (I do this so parents don't see what other kids have done), date, the offense, and why they did it. When report card/conference time rolls around if really is a great way to have documentation. I tell the kids to write everything so when mom and dad sees it the totally know his side of the story. If a child's name is not in the log he/she has not committed any serious offenses. I also use this to document phone/ and other communication. Try to get the spirals w/paper that tears out cleanly. I have used the log for resource placements (anecdotal records).

I hope that helps. I used to run off log pages and a coworker pointed out I was wasting money. She suggested I use a 5 subject spiral.

Sherry, thanks for your 5th grade procedures. They will be VERY useful, and I look forward to trying out some of those ideas next year. I'm wondering what cash amounts you use for different offenses like messy desk, etc. that you mention in your document. Thanks again! -Jenny

fines/charges doc.
Old 06-06-2007, 05:45 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #16

Here is my document for fines. What I do is print this out on decorative stationery (I have some with apple border) and post it inside of a clear sheet protector in the front of my room near the entrance. The student who I select as my sheriff also keeps one on his/her clipboard. Some things mentioned on my list that you may not know are: "BMC" (that's our detention room) and "Level 1" (in my class that means no talking; Level 2 is talking in a soft voice, etc.)

I'm very happy that you found everything helpful so far! I get SO MANY ideas from this site and I am grateful that I can contribute something in return . ENJOY!

I have a program that works consistently. I'd rather attach the documents than try to explain it.l..then answer questions. Could somone tell me how to do that? The kids LOVE this program and it's SO EASY for me!

I can not begin to thank you enough for the websites you provided! Mr. Coley is amazing. I would love to be in his class. I found Ms. Powell's website to be enlightening and I will definitely read the suggested material. I am a new teacher beginning my second year of teaching in a different state. Your response was extremely helpful. If I could, I'd send you a computer hug!!!
