Reinforcing Behavior

What Can You Do To Reinforce School-Wide Positive Behavior

  • Learn and model the Leapwood School-Wide Behavioral Expectations.
  • Find the connection between the School-Wide Discipline Plan and your Classroom Management Plan (It creates consistency!)
  • Find opportunities to refer to the behavioral guidelines and expectations  in your daily lessons (Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible).
  • Consider misbehavior as an opportunity for learning.  Will the consequence teach the student what to do next time?
  • LOOK for and acknowledge students that display the behavioral expectations.  (verbal praise, tickets, stickers, positive note home, high five, etc…)
