Behavioral Management Plan for Dylan Copeland
This plan is being written to help improve Dylan's behavior in the classroom and to help him build a better relationship with his peers. It will include strategies that will be implemented throughout the day and it will also include rewards and consequences.
The students have 3 cards in their number pocket which include green, yellow, and red. Each day every student starts on green. When a student does not follow the rule, he or she will pull a yellow card (this is a warning card). If the student continues to not follow classroom rules the card will be pulled to red. At the end of the day all students that are still on green will receive a sticker on their calendar which is located in their homework folder. If the student pulled a card, he/she will color that space yellow or red depending on what their card is pulled to. At the end of the week their calendar for the week will show what their conduct grade is for the week. Ex. Stickers all week-A+, one yellow-A, two yellow A-, one red B+ and so on. Each day the parents will know how their child behaved that day so the conduct grade for the week should be one that they expect their child to have.
Be polite to others
Respect others- including teachers
Walk quietly in the halls
Do your best work
Keep your area clean
Obey all school and county rules
Dylan's plan: Dylan will be expected to follow all classroom rules, but he will have a visual reminder of how he is breaking the class rules. Every morning I am going to give him 5 sticks to keep at his desk. If I have to tell him more than 2 times to do something he will give me back a stick. I will give him 2 chances before I take a stick because there might be a slight chance that he would have not heard me the first time. When he gives me back 3 sticks I will make him put his card on yellow. If I get all 5 sticks he will be on red. Of course if he does something major like fighting or something of that nature, he may go to yellow or red. Hopefully this will be a visual reminder and will make him aware of his behavior and he will get better at controlling his actions.
He will also have a visual reminder from Ms. Hamilton. He has a chart with six desirable behavioral traits written on it for every day of the week. If he complies with these traits, I will give him a sticker. Each day (if possible) he will show Ms. Hamilton his chart and she will counsel with him on areas that need improving.
Physical Separation from Alex
Dylan and Alex seem to have a problem getting along together. The teacher has separated them in the classroom. Dylan is seated at the front of the room and Alex is seated at the back of the room on the opposite side. The teacher has arranged the classroom where Dylan will NOT need to be in the vicinity of Alex when he is moving around the room (getting pencils, throwing trash away, taking AR tests, etc). When they are in line, the teacher will make sure that they are not beside each other in line. If they are, the teacher will remove one or the other to another place in line. At lunch and in the computer lab, the teacher will make sure they are not sitting at the same table. The PE teachers and music teacher will be told to make sure they are separated when they are with them. Also, Dylan will be going to the bathroom at a separate time than Alex.
The consequences of him not complying will be lowered conduct grades, emails and/or phone calls to parents (which may result in restrictions from certain privileges at home), missing time in PE, being removed from classroom and placed in another teacher's room for 30 minutes, in school suspension (he will do his class work in principal's office) being paddled by teacher and/or principal, and Saturday School.
Praise from teacher, stickers on calendar, stickers on chart (Ms. Hamilton) reward from Ms. Hamilton, better conduct grades, could result in better grades on tests, extra time to draw at the end of the day or during AR time (per Mrs. Tyson).
