Happy belated 4th of July! I hope everyone had fun celebrating our Independence and I'm sure some of us will be celebrating again on the weekend! :) Go ahead, celebrate some more! ...You deserve a break! I had a lovely day, I celebrated my 3 year anniversary with my boyfriend. We went to the Alamo Draft house for dinner and a movie!
That's enough about me, let's talk about my classroom management plan! During my undergraduate courses, a short few months ago, I observed a teacher (Mrs. S) in a BMC (behavior management classroom). I drooled over her behavior management system. Although confusing at first, it lends itself to what I call "the most intricate & well planned behavior system ever!" I have taken her system under my belt to HOPEFULLY apply it to my Jr. High special education class.
**WARNING-this post will have a lot of info!**
I hope you're ready for it! I also hope this information will help you with your management plan!
Here is how Mrs. S setup her system:

Here's my behavior management system:
|My data tracking sheet|
The students will have data collected daily on their goals. They will get a tally each time they need to be helped or reminded of their goal. The tallies are totaled each day and converted into Scholar Dollars. Students who receive $4 (0-24tallies) for 10 consecutive days will earn the title ‘self-manager and can help with class jobs.’ The student will hold a class job position as long as they are self-manager. The student can lose the title ‘self-manager’ and a class job position if they receive 120+ tallies for 3 consecutive days. Students can always earn and loose the title ‘self-manager.’ Here is the conversion of tallies to Scholar Dollars:
To help me set up my behavior management system, I used these resources:
