Get a Handle on Behavior

Don't Let Your Classroom Honeymoon End!

Is the honeymoon over in your class? Certainly I've noticed a decline in some of my student's behaviors already. Well, it's time to be consistent, yet fair and by no means will I be letting go of my high expectations. My success in handing behavior has always stemmed from having a good relationship with my students while keeping my expectations high. And of course, I can't say enough about being consistent. If you expect it - demand it. This week why not try some behavior contracts or worksheets to help with those students that need that extra bit.

The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires. ~ William Arthur Ward

at the same time;
the mediocre student memorizes. the good student learns. the superior student understands. the great student comprehends.

the focus should be on what the student does not on what the teacher does in my book.

Thanks for producing this sheet, since most students need rewards in small increments in order to "see" their success.
I like the fact that you've already made this for me to use. It saves me time and the headaches.
