    Re: Discipline policy

    My classroom behavior plan is similar to Molly's. Everyone
    starts on blue every day and can move to green, yellow and
    then red. Green is still fine but not outstanding, yellow means
    slow down and think about the behavior, and red is a contact
    with parent - violation or referral. They move through the
    colors for continuing to make poor choices but go straight to
    red if they purposefully hurt someone. At the end of the day,
    everyone on blue gets a sticker and 10 stickers gets a trip to
    the treasure box. For some, it happens every 10 days and for
    others, well, it takes longer LOL.

    School wide, a child who is noticed by an adult as doing
    something good (helping another child, walking quietly, etc) is
    given a ticket. At the end of the marking period they "buy"
    prizes for the tickets. There are little trinkets and larger,
    teacher prizes (lunch with a teacher, dance party, play
    basketball in the gym, etc.). As a class, when another teacher
    notices the class doing something well such as walking quietly
    in the hall, they can give the class a paw sticker. At the end of
    the quarter, the class with the most paw stickers in each grade
    get a popcorn party.

    There are lots of positive reinforcements given individually and
    to the classes so it's definitely not a punishment-based system.
