Children are NOT good or bad. It is their behavior that is acceptable or unacceptable. Developmentally, children at this age want to please the adults in their life. However, there are times when they do not know what
or how to do what is considered acceptable. Yet, everyone is responsible for his or her actions. Behavior can be modified by positive and negative reinforcements. These ideas are the foundation of the Traffic Light

Each student begins the day on a “green” light and the behavior they choose for the day determines what color they will be on at the end of the day. Please remember that everyone makes mistakes and that is Ok- that's how we learn!

Yellow- WARNING! 5 minutes loss of free play.
Red- STOP! 10 minutes loss of free play.
Our class also works as together to earn table tallies. When tables are all working together making good choices they receive a tallie. The table(s) with the most tallies at the end of the week gets to pick a prize from the treasure box.
