  • Behavior issues cause academic problems.
  • Academic issues cause behavior problems.
  • Behavior and academics are intertwined.
Children who struggle to meet academic goals are more likely to present behavioral challenges. Children with behavioral challenges are more likely to have difficulty in meeting academic goals.

Be Safe

Be Respectful

Be Responsible



Teach kids what you want,

and pay more attention to them

when they are doing it

than when they are not.





-Keep yourself to yourself.

-Stay in your work area.

-Talk only about the work.

- Be considerate of other’s feelings.

- Raise hands only if everyone has the same question.

-Everyone contributes.

-Work tasks should be distributed fairly.


1. Demonstrate staying in the work area.

2. Give examples of considerate, constructive comments.

4. Show how/when to raise hands.


3. Demonstrate getting off task or in other conversations, and how to kindly remind team mates to get back on topic.

Co-operative Groups

REASON THE EXPECTATIONS ARE IMPORTANT:Everyone can share the work and complete it faster. We can work together more often.


Demonstrate with students.

REVIEW: Have several students tell what was taught at these stations.


Co-operative Groups

  • Talk only about the work.
  • Everyone must participate and contribute.
  • Work tasks should be distributed fairly.
  • Talk out issues, be considerate of other’s feelings.
  • Raise your hands only if everyone has the same question.

purpose of positives
Purpose of Positives
  • Help Adults Build Positive Relationships
    • Who they are
    • What they do
  • Create a positive, inviting environment
  • Tool to encourage & reinforce desired behaviors
    • Those learning new behaviors
    • Role models of positive behavior
why use tangibles


Why use tangibles?




  • They help you learn to look for the good in kids.
  • They increase your opportunities to build relationships with kids.
  • They multiply the positive reinforcement.
  • It is more effective in helping kids change habits than verbal praise alone.

(but remember - is has to be genuine.)

creating bridges
Creating Bridges

Deliver a

meaningful messagethat

builds self-esteem

and can

become internalized.

  • “I know that assignment was hard, but you stayed with it. You’re a hard worker.”
  • “Thanks for standing up for someone else. You did the right thing. You should be proud of yourself.”
business and reinforcement
Business and Reinforcement

“How did you feel after that last interaction? Did that person fill you bucket, making you feel more positive, or did that person dip from your bucket, leaving you feeling more negative than before?

Get to know your employees as people.

Have some fun together.

Work is NOT the opposite of fun.

bigger isn t better

Good things might come your way

if you're doing the right thing.

Bigger isn’t better.

Intermittent random reinforcement is most effective in changing behavior.


In your experience, what gives teachers the “biggest bang for their buck” in getting students to do what is expected?A. Giving out rewardsB. Having clear and consistent consequences for problem behaviorC. Teaching expectations directly, and reinforcing students who comply


When using rewards in your classroom, are you “buying” student behavior?A. YesB. NoC. Depends on how it’s doneDiscuss with those around you…


The goal of classroom management is to develop a group of students who are responsible, motivated and highly engaged in meaningful tasks.


Create systems in which the smallest

efforts give you greatest impact.
