The policy that we use in first grade is very similar to what was used in kindergarten, but instead of having five colored cards (five steps), there are now four. Positive reinforcement is used throughout the day to encourage the appropriate behavior. However, if a misbehavior occurs, then students must pull a colored card that equals a consequence for their behavior. The consequences are as follows:
*1. If the first card is pulled, this means ten minutes time out during playtime.
*2. The second card pulled is a loss of twenty minutes playtime.
*3. The third card pulled is a write-off of their spelling words ten times during recess, or for the next recess if still not finished.
*4. If they should pull the last card, I will take them to Mr. Bailey and parents will be notified immediately.
