Ladder of Inference
I have attached a Systems Thinking chart that I will be using for discipline as needed to help children understand the value of good choices and reinforce positive behavior. This will be a tool that I will use to discuss with your child verbally one-on-one.
Order of Discipline
1. 1 Verbal Warning
2. 2nd Warning - Move number to "warning."
(think about it session - make goal for better choices)
3. 3rd Warning - Move number to "consequence."
(time out session or loss of privilege)
4. 4th Warning - Move number to "parent contact."
(call home and/or trip to office -- students will be asked to write a reflection
at home after discussion w/parent)
All children have the choice to make their day better, in which they can move back to green (or beyond) with good behavior.
Students who make poor choices will receive a number on their calendar. Students with a "clean" calendar for the week will get a trip to the treasure box every Friday!
