Kindergarten Discipline Plan

  • Kindergarten Discipline Plan


            In order to provide my students with a safe, pleasant learning environment, I will be implementing the Luther School’s “Live Above the Line” discipline program.  The main goal of this program is to foster respect for self, others, and the environment.  Children will practice self-control, empathy, and an awareness of common sense.

              “Living Above the Line” encourages positive behavior through the use of verbal praise and “purple slip” rewards.  When a child has repeatedly demonstrated good behavior and/or goes above and beyond expectations, they can be rewarded with a purple slip.  The class cheers for the recipient before the slip is hung on a bulletin board for everyone to see.  Once a month all the slips are collected for a drawing.  One Lucky winner from our class is rewarded with lunch with the principal J

              When inappropriate behavior occurs, children are reminded of the rules and asked to change their behavior.  If the negative behavior continues, student must fill out a “fix-it plan” to change their behavior.  A copy of the “fix-it plan” goes home with the student.  They must discuss the incident with you and return the paper to school the next day with your signature. 

              During the beginning of the school year we will begin to talk about the school rules and what they mean for all of us.  I will not officially begin handing out rewards or using “fix-it plans” during the first week or two of school.  My main goal is for all children to understand what the rules mean and why we use them.  Learning the rules of school is a major focus in Kindergarten because it helps build a healthy sense of community and this will maximize the learning experience for everyone!
