2011-2012 Behavior Management System

Our classroom uses a color-coded card system for behavior management.  With the exception of the 'Wow' card, a 'no-card' day is a good day!  Any card(s) your child receives will be stapled into the planner and be brought home to you.  It is your responsibility to sign the card so that I know the behavior was discussed at home, and it is your child's responsibility to return the card to me the following day.  If your child had a 'no-card' day, a smiley-face will be drawn in the planner for that day.  At the end of the month, I will draw a couple cards from the 'Wow' card pile and those students will receive a prize.  Students are allowed 1 warning before a card is given, unless the behavior is severe enough to warrant an automatic card.  The color codes are as follows:

A New School Year

I feel so very excited and blessed to be a part of your child's educational experience.  I created this blog as part of my commitment to keep my students' families involved and informed about what is going on in the classroom.  I promise to not post pictures of your child's face, or post their names, on the blog.  Your child's safety is something I take very seriously and I promise to not violate the trust you have placed with me.

On this blog you will find pictures of classwork, ideas for activities that can be done at home to support the learning going on in the classroom, up-to-date information on what topics are being covered in the classroom, and even some guest blog posts by the students!

I know that this year is going to be fabulous and I look forward to helping your child meet his/her educational goals.
