Behavior Program

 

The behavior program that we use in our classrooms emphasizes positive behaviors. The program involves green, yellow, and red tickets. The behavior program is used in all first grade classrooms at Gold Camp.

Green Tickets

Students strive to get green tickets, which allows them to earn rewards. Green tickets are given anytime we want to reinforce positive behavior. These behaviors include staying on task, students being helpful, students being good listeners in large group or at their seat, or students following instructions or rules. We believe all students respond to this positive reinforcement.

Yellow Tickets

       When a student needs reminding about his/her behavior a yellow ticket is given. A yellow ticket calls attention to the student to correct the behavior. A yellow ticket is a warning and there is no consequence for getting a yellow ticket.

Red Tickets

       When a student continues a behavior after a yellow ticket is given then a red ticket is given. Red tickets should alert a student to straighten up and stop the behavior that is interfering with his/her learning or the learning of others in the classroom. When a red ticket is given the student will lose 5 minutes of recess. Anytime red tickets are given a form is sent home that needs to be signed. If the signed form is not returned the following day the child will sit out their full morning recess. If a student gets 3 red tickets in one day we will usually call home to discuss the situation with you. 

*All yellow and red tickets are removed daily so students begin each day with a fresh start.
