INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP DISCIPLINE STATAGIES
— Flip Card Chart: Start out by rewarding the children at the end of each day if they stay on the beginning color. After a month, change it to once a week. After several months, change it to once every two weeks.
Alternate Idea. At the end of every day, if the child stays on green, reward that child with a sticker that goes on a student chart. Once the child receives ten of these stickers, they can get a reward (piece of candy, extra reading or computer time, etc.).
— Clothes Pin: Make five different signs that relate to traffic signs. The first one is of a green circle that says, “Go.” The second one reads “Yield.” The third one reads “Pit Stop.” The fourth one reads “Warning Danger Ahead!” The last one says, “Stop!” Each sign implies different punishments. Once again, if the child stays on green for a certain period of time, the same strategies of reward can be used for this as the flip card chart.
— Peg Board: Use this idea for either discipline or to help out with lunch count/attendance.
For Discipline – Here the children have hooks in which color tiles are hung. This operates the same was as the flip a card chart except they add colors tiles when being disciplined.
For attendance/lunch count – Here the children have their own tile with their name or number on it. Below all the names are smaller tiles that read, brown bag or hot lunch. You can also add tiles for yogurt, P.B.J., or any other choice they have. If a person is not present that day, no extra card is placed on their name/number. This responsibility can then be placed on a certain student for the day/week.
— Play Money: Have each child start each week with a five dollar bill (and possibly some change). They can earn or lose money depending on their actions. On Friday, open a “store” in which the children can buy stuff with the money they have earned. Passes such as computer time, reading time, or even bathroom passes can all be used to support a positive environment. Addition inexpensive supplies could be bought in garage sales, store close-outs or discontinued products. Pencils and erasures always make a nice cheap toy.
— Marbles in a Jar: Let the children earn a marble in a jar for times when they are working well as a group. This may include work within the classroom, recess times, or hallway times. When the children fill up the jar, they may have a Friday party.
— Big Tree: This can be either a 2-D tree that is used as a bulletin board or a 3-D tree (either real, fake, or class made). Place the tree in the hallway and put a title by it. If it’s a 3-D tree, then hang the title above it. The title could be something like “Smiles-R-Us,” or let the children come up with a name. Hang a smiley face (made either by the children in free time or teacher made/bought) for every time you observe a child doing something really nice or when the class as a whole does something well.
