First and foremost, establish 3-5 (ish) positive behavior expectations.
Then create a way to track behavior that is both easy to use and visible for the students.
- clearly define what it looks like to be in ‘red’, ‘yellow’, etc. When moving a child from one level to the next, reference that terminology and the example of why they are moving up or down. Also state what the desired future action would be to make this move more or less likely in the future.
Create a compliment wall in which all can add to acknowledge classmates or other colleagues in the building that are doing a great job!
