Mrs. Randall's Learning Library is having a classroom management linky party and I thought I would join in.
I use a Behavior Management Pocket Chart from Lakeshore in my kindergarten classroom. The chart comes with cards that are green, yellow, orange and red. Green is for good behavior and red is for poor behavior. Students are given one verbal warning before having to flip their card to the next color. All students on green at the end of the day receive a small treasure such as a sticker, pencil, etc... Students on red will usually pay a visit to our principal.
Students behavior is documented each day in a "daily" folder. This folder goes home each day and I mark the color the student's behavior was for that day. I also mark why the child's card was flipped. Parents initial the calender in the folder each day.
Attached to the inside of the folder is a Behavior Code chart. When I am in a hurry I just have to write the number for the reason the card was flipped.
I am looking forward to reading all the different classroom management styles. Please check them all out at Mrs. Randall's Learning Library.
