classroom behavior plan consists of rules that students can understand,
consequences when rules are broken, and rewards when rules are
a student has chosen to break a rule or not
follow through on an expectation, this will be recorded on the Daily
Behavior Sheet. The students will record their own behavior if it is a
crown. I will fill out the behavior for students that were off
task, disruptive, etc.
I do most of my disciplining through
passing out/taking away tickets. (See ticket store
below) Thus, if a student gets to a 3, 2, or 1, by the end of the day,
it is time for a “talk”. If your child receives a sad face or unhappy
face, please be aware that he/she has chosen to misbehave, and that I
REALLY need your support at home. Please follow through by taking away
some type of home privilege.
is a new day with our Behavior Plan. Each day your child will start
fresh. It is always my goal to continuously focus on the positive side.
Please help me in my efforts to create a positive classroom environment
free from the types of distractions that detract from the learning

Homework Folder for the behavior sheet each day, and then initial below.
a part of our behavior plan, students are given tickets as a reward for
good behavior and accomplishments throughout the day. Tickets are also
taken away when students do not make good choices, do not follow
directions, do not do homework, etc.
What is the Ticket Store?:
times throughout the year, students will be invited to participate in
our Class Ticket Store. Purchasing items for the store can get very
expensive, that’s why I’m asking for your help.
What can you donate for the
any inexpensive item that your child would love. You can purchase these
items at the Dollar Tree, Dollar Store, and Family Dollar, Target, etc.
Items I’ve purchased in the past include, kites, hula hoops, jump
ropes, flash cards, diaries, nerf balls, basketball and hoop sets,
puzzles, cool pencils, colored pencil sets, glitter crayons, bubble
wands/bubble sets, etc.
When can you donate?
Anytime throughout the year would be great!!!
As always, I appreciate your generosity. I couldn’t do it without your
Whole Brain Teaching in our Classroom
The students ABSOLUTELY love the gestures, chants . . . everything!
been using Whole Brain, formerly known as Power Teaching, for many
years now. Whole Brain techniques, along with Quantum Learning, have
completely changed how I teach and manage my classroom. Student
engagement has increased and behavior issues have dramatically
decreased. I rarely have to mark behavior charts. Be sure to
check out Whole
Also, check out Pinterest and Teachers Pay Teachers
for many free resources. Once you try these techniques, you will NEVER
go back to regular teaching. Take it slow when you begin, just start
out with the basics like Micro-lecture, Class/Yes, Teach/Okay, It's
Cool, Gestures, etc. You will find detailed etexts to get you started
on the site. I still haven't incorporated all of the ideas from Whole
is the video I
watched that started it all. Just try to watch it without cracking up laughing and trying out the gestures.

Posters of Classroom Rules
act these out at the beginning of the year in order to internalize
them. We practice, practice, practice until they memorize the number,
the rule and the gestures. The idea being that if I'm teaching, I can
look at the class and
say rule 1 or wave 1 finger in the air. They know exactly what I expect
without me having to stop
the lesson and say, "Please remember to raise your hand before
speaking." This is another Whole Brain Teaching technique.
I haven't started using the WBT rules yet, but am toying with using
some for next year. I like most of the WBT rules, but I think my rules
3 and 4 are important. For example, just before we enter the building
from recess, I wave 4 fingers in the air as do they, and we chant rule
4. It calms them and gets them in a nice line ready to enter the
building. I do the same with rule 3 if it gets a bit noisy during
independent, paired or group activities. (They say it in a whisper
