New Classroom Rewards System

Hello parents,

Today I introduced a new positive behaviour classroom rewards system. The students will receive stamps on a stamp card for showing the positive behaviours. We will be focusing on three areas: lesson time, independent work, and group work. Below are the expected behaviours for each area.

Lesson time behaviours:

1. Whole body listening

2. Raise your hand

3. Speak only when called on by teacher or adult

4. Stay calm when not called on

5. Hands to self (no fidgets)

6. Remain at carpet/seat during whole lesson

Independent Work time behaviours:

a. Sit at desk (or ask permission to work elsewhere)

b. Complete task

c. No talking

d. If you have a question – raise your hand and wait

Group work behaviours:

1. Everyone completing the task

2. Conversation is on topic

3. Words builds up group/team – kind, positive, helpful

4. Get help when needed.  ”We are having a hard time working..”

When a student completes a stamp card they will receive a reward. They can choose to spend their card during the day for an end of the day reward or save their card to choose a higher valued reward.

Ask your child about the system and their success at earning stamps.
