In our class we have two types of behavior enforcements:
The goal of the "Banana" incentive program is to make sure that the child becomes in charge of his or her own behavior. A student who has mastered a rule will be reconized in order to promote that skill in others. After collecting five bananas, the student will have the privelage of picking out of the treasure chest!
I have added a step to our "traffic light" - the color blue. The addition will just serve as a visual representation of a "clip" being moved as opposed to me just verbally warning a student. When a child's clip is moved to the blue line - you will receive a note that will just let you know of the child's warning and reason - points will not be deducted from the conduct grade for the nine weeks.
If the child's clip is moved to yellow - he or she will lose 5 minutes of recess and receive a point deduction of 1 point towards the conduct grade for the nine weeks.
If the behavior continues and the child moves his or her clip to red - he or she will lose 10 minutes of "big" center time and a deduction of 2 points towards the conduct grade for the nine weeks. The child will still be given an activity to do at his or her table - but will not be a part of the first part of "big" center time.
