Hi! I'm new to posting on forums, but I have a behavior management idea that I would like some feedback about. This will be my first year teaching (first grade). I have had a lot of experience in classrooms, and many teachers in my school use the "stoplight" method. While this can work for some, I also see a lot of negative about it. Mostly everyday the same students are on red. It is embarrassing for them and it does not change the behaviors. So, on my journey this summer of putting my classroom together I've been trying to think of a management system that isn't too complicated, and does not require a ton of attention. After doing some research I've combined a few ideas to something I think could work. I would like some feedback from experienced teachers on what you think.... Each child starts with 2 tickets velcro-ed to their desk. Tickets are laminated and have their student # on them. If they do not follow a rule they have to put their ticket in my bin on my desk. They may earn up to 3 tickets a day. At the end of the day, however many tickets they have left is how many punches they get on their punch card (Possibly my assistant could do this). If a student loses all of their tickets they must fill out a paper saying "I lost all of my tickets today because..." And explain why- this will be sent home in their folder. After they get 20 punches they may choose from the reward cards (lunch with teacher, choose a seat, no socks day, show and tell, etc.) I appreciate any feedback!!
