I have passed my discipline records onto many. I am glad they can do you
some good for you. I have posted the record sheet onto my Web page. I keep
them in a book....I have lots of students who have warnings recorded (I even
have my own name recorded for warnings...to make it fun)....but I had very
few students with minor misconducts. Once they knew the warning was
recorded, the behavior stopped for most students. I had some goofy boys in
my sixth grade class....I was very busy getting ready for the art show and
honestly did not have time for parent calls. All I told them was "Many of
you are in danger of receiving parent phone calls for minor misconducts
violations. I do not have time to call right now, so let's see if the
behaviors improve"...It did for all but one child! Of course many wanted to
know if they were one of the ones in danger...I said "I wouldn't take my
chances trying to find out now". After the art show was over, I entered all
of the names into my data base...then printed out the frequency for the ones
who were causing problems...very few had minors...but were getting warnings
far too frequently...I told them individually "See what we have had to put
up with from you...Now what are you going to do abut it?"....It all fits
into making a positive learning environment. The students--all except for
one--were changed by this approach. I will have this same student again next
year, and I hope to reach him.
I am not sending anymore files out now as I am too busy now....but I did
post the record sheet on the web:
Click on Discipline Record at the bottom of the page. Save the file as
HTML--then open into Word. You can then save back into Word. I will not be
replying to anymore requests. If anyone who is still interested in
Discipline can ask the list what works for them. My files are there for
sharing with others. The Self Assessment was an Excell file and could not be
changed as easily to HTML. Ask if anyone has it if you still want it.
Glad I was able to help!
