Behavior

We are SMART Eagles!

S-Safety

M-Mutual Respect

A-Awesome Attitudes

R-Responsibility

T-Team players


S.M.A.R.T. expectations are expected in all areas of the school for all grade

levels. We will practice what each looks like, feels like, and sounds like

for all areas of the school. (PE, cafeteria, restrooms, playground…..)

Students that demonstrate knowledge of and practice these expectations can

receive an eagle feather. Teachers will circle the letter of the expectation

that they were exhibiting and will write the student’s name on the feather.

The feathers will be posted on our FNE Eagle in the cafeteria for everyone to

see. Students that have feathers on the Eagle will be randomly selected to

have their name celebrated on broadcast.


Our Classroom Procedures

Procedures are our everyday routines and expectations. We have many

procedures in place for Kindergarten. These are the things that after

practice should be routine behaviors. (IE. when a pencil is dull, put it in

the dull pencil cup)


Social Contract

We want to be kind to one another and always try our hardest in everything we

do this year in Kindergarten. In addition to our classroom procedures, the

students and teacher will form a social contract with one another later this

week. These are our classroom expectations that we all agree will help

everyone in our class feel welcomed and safe. After we have created them,

they will be posted in the classroom and also on the class website. The

social contract will be the foundation for managing behavior in the classroom.


Behavior Management

We truly believe that each and every child is unique! Everyone has his or

her own set of abilities and needs. Because every student is so different,

our behavior plan is individualized. We recognize that we all make

mistakes. When children make mistakes in following the classroom

expectations, we will ask the following four questions designed to help

students self monitor their own behavior. They will always be the same

questions, they are posted on the wall and will be taught directly to the

kids. 1. “What are you doing?” 2. “Is that what you are supposed to be

doing?” 3.”Were you doing it?” 4. “What are you going to do about it?” If

I do not get an appropriate answer, I will say, “you may either answer the

question or you are choosing the consequence.” If the answer is still not

appropriate I will say, “I see by choosing(inappropriate action), you are

choosing(consequence.)” The consequence will be determined according to the

behavior. I’ll also help the children solve the problems caused by their

mistakes through the use of “logical consequences.” Logical consequences are

not punishments. They are ways to help children see the effects of their

actions, repair the situation, and learn to do better next time.

In some instances logical consequences are not appropriate. In the event

that a child chooses to violate the Student Code of Conduct as outlined in

the Round Rock Independent School District’s Elementary Student-Parent

Handbook, the student will be sent to the office with a discipline referral.


Communication of Behavior

Home folders, e-mail, phone calls and conferences will be the best way to

communicate behavior.


Thank you for your support this year! I hope to help the children become

responsible students who are self-managers of their behavior. We will work

hard learning how to be good friends to one another, inside of the classroom

and out.
