My class is mostly boys. I only have 7 girls and two of them are twin sisters. They boys in my class are very rough with their bodies and with their language. One little boy called me a "dirtbag" last week. I was appalled, but realized he must have heard it from his family.
I had to do something, so I instituted this behavior plan. I have very high expectations that every child in my class will be safe. That is my only rule. They have to make sure they are not hurtful with their bodies or their words. If they do not follow the rule they will be asked to leave the classroom. I am lucky enough to have a wonderful behavior assistant in the class next door and she will process behavior with my children. I can attach the plan if someone tells me how.
It is basically a check list for each child and on the back it gives a narrative so you can write to the parents. The parents have to sign the chart every day it gets sent home. It has worked so far.
I also have a "no talking zone" in my class when I am directly teaching. I have signs that say "no talking zone" and the other side is green so they are allowed to talk for snack, centers, etc.
I feel like I have turned very strict, but my class was so out of control I have parents complain their children were not safe. Now I have parents say I am too strict, but that is another post.
I hope this helps.
