Behavior System
  • Positive Reinforcement
  • Behavior Bucks Students receive a behavior
    buck for personal positive behavior. Every
    other Friday students will record the amount of
    money they have received in their checkbook.
    This money can be used during third grades
    Market Day. The students will also put all of
    their behavior bucks into a Bucket of Luck for
    a prize drawing.
  • Table Marbles Tables receive marbles in their
    cup when they make good choices, stay on task,
    and work well together as a group. The first
    table to fill their cup gets to vote on a reward
    for their table.
  • Spelling a Word The class will try to spell a
    word on the front white board by having great
    behavior and receiving compliments from other
    teachers and administrators. Once they spell a
    word, the class will vote on a reward for
    everyone to enjoy.
  • Sticks
  • Each student has a pocket labeled with their
    classroom number that contains three sticks.
    When a student is not displaying appropriate
    classroom/school behavior they will be asked to
    pull a stick.
  • 1 stick Warning
  • 2 sticks Deduction from checkbook
  • 3 sticks All of the above and a note home
  • Learning Skills and Behavior Sheet

    sent home each Friday. It must be signed and
    returned on Monday.

    grade participates in Market Day. 
  • Students have the opportunity to earn behavior
    bucks in the classroom on a daily basis.
  • At various times during the nine weeks, students
    will deposit their behavior bucks into a checking
