The Behavior Alert shows the rules that were broken, and the students, as well as their parents, need to sign this. This is a great way for the parents to track their children's behavior and the teachers can also alert the parents if there are issues.
I have done this the last few years with A Great Student Is.love the idea of including new categories. Kids brainstorm what a terrific teacher is, does, says, and is not. Great ice breaker for the first week, maybe as a carousel activity
I like the idea of writing out the class rules so that the kids can be reminded of them easily. I think I would implement a student and teacher collaborated list of rules or social contract to give our class a standard to hold each other accountable for.
