So anyway, I thought I would share a few things I use throughout the year to help with behavior, classroom management, and parent communication. I had an unusually large amount of discipline problems in my class last year, so some of these documents were used to keep up with documenting information for RTI (hopefully I won't need to use them with my new group of sweeties!).
I have used the clip chart behavior plan for the last 3 years and really love it! We give a conduct grade, so I am able to use the clip chart to take away points for discipline problems. wherever a student ends up at the end of the day is noted on the weekly (or daily) behavior sheet for parents to sign. I also keep a quick form on a clipboard at my desk to color in at the end of each day for my gradebook. All students start out with 100 points. At the end of each week I simply total up the points and subtract from their grade the week before. Most of my students end up with A's in conduct, a few end up with B's, and a very, very small amount end up lower than that. Those are the students who end up in RTI with a specific discipline plan.
Feel free to grab anything you can use! I hope something I have shared will be helpful to someone out there in bloggy land! I will add more things as I have time (after the wedding) and will also be sure to post pictures from "the big event"!
