Ms. Braun's Classroom

New Year, New Expectations!

Welcome back to school!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Winter Break and enjoyed celebrating the holiday's with family and friends!

Before the break, I noticed that my current classroom management plan was not working! I knew it was time for a change. A new year means new expectations for myself and the students. Therefore during the break, I made some adjustments to the classroom's management style.

This newsletter contains the new adjustments. Feel free to contact me for any comments and/or concerns.

Classroom Rules

New Classroom Rules:

1. Follow directions.

2. Keep hands, feet, and objects to self at all times.

3. Raise your hand to ask a question.

4. Be kind to your classmates.

Supportive Feedback

In the classroom, I want to encourage productivity and good behavior. I have created new incentives to support desired classroom behavior.

1. Verbal recognition: Praise or encouragement verbally in the classroom during the day.

2. Individual rewards: This could include positive notes left on student's desk, agenda or an encouraging home phone call.

3. Class Privileges: This could include class coupons consisting of a variety of different rewards students can earn for outstanding behavior.

2nd time: Ut-oh! One to two minutes after class.

3rd time: Make a better choice next time! Think Sheet.

4th time: Recess or lunch detention
