Behavior Expectations

4th Grade Behavior Expectations 

Behavior Expectations for your 4th grader

 

If teachers are to teach and students are to learn, we must have a safe, orderly environment in which individuals show respect for one another. To achieve this, we will hold students responsible for their behavior both in and out of the classroom.

Teachers, administrators, school staff, and parents must work together as a team with a clear understanding of consistent standards and procedures. We must teach students to be responsible, to make good choices, to respond to each other and to adults in appropriate ways. These are lifelong skills.

 

The Choice Ladder

I believe that the outcome of our own future in life is based on the choices we make.  I have created a behavior system in my classroom that is based on your child’s choices.

Positive Choices Have Positive Consequences
          Students that make good choices in the classroom will be applauded with positive praise and rewards.

How it works:

Good Choice – Step 1 on the ladder.  Students will be rewarded with the choice to draw during silent reading time.

Great Choice – Step 2 on the ladder.  Students will be rewarded with the choice to draw during silent reading time and will not have to finish morning work from the beginning of the day.

Star Student – Step 3 on the ladder.  Students will be rewarded with the choice to draw during silent reading time, will not have to finish morning work from the beginning of the day, and will be given computer time the next day.  They will also receive a certificate and homework pass.

 

Negative Choices Have Negative Consequences
          Students that make poor choices in the classroom will have specific consequences.  Students will choose to have one of these consequences if they are unable to follow expectations given to them in the classroom, hallway or recess.

How it works:

Poor Choice #1:  Students will be required to stand on the recess wall for 5 minutes.

Poor Choice #2:  Students will be required to stand on the recess wall for 10 minutes and will have to fill out a consequence slip.

Poor Choice #3:  Students will be required to stand on the recess wall for the entire recess, they will fill out a consequence slip and will have a note sent home to be signed and returned.

*Students that end up on “Poor Choice #3” three times will be referred to administration for further consequences.*

The purpose of these expectations is to provide the best education possible for all students. To achieve this goal, I require certain standards of behavior. These expectations are designed to make it possible for teachers to teach and for students to learn in a safe, orderly and healthy environment where courtesy and responsibility are important.

  • Be considerate, courteous and respectful.
  • Listen to and follow directions.
  • Follow classroom and school rules.
  • Be on time and prepared for class.
  • Walk in an orderly manner on campus.
  • Keep hands, feet and objects to themselves.
  • Show respect for school property and the property of others.
  • Bring problems and concerns to the attention of an adult
