Kindergarten teachers base conduct grades on the behavior calendars (sticker charts, behavior charts) which they send home everyday. Kindergartners must master proper school behavior in order to be ready to learn the academic knowledge and skills. These behaviors will help them in their lives beyond school, as well.

U – has needed the principal to be involved and still chooses to make poor behavior choices – little or no improvement in behavior
