OACS uses a school-wide proactive and positive behavior expectation system called CHAMPs.
For those of you that haven't heard of CHAMPs, it stands for:
Conversation - Can students talk during this activity?
Help - How can students get assistance during this activity?
Activity - What are students doing?
Movement - Can students move during the activity?
Participation - What does active participation look like?
Success - What we can expect when we follow expectations!
How it works: We update and review our CHAMPs chart at the beginning of each lesson to review behavioral expectations. I really like that the expectations are clearly stated at the beginning of the lesson, because at this age many of them need the reminder. The kids really get a hang of the chart and can even help to update it before we begin our lesson!
***A Color Chart is Displayed in the Classroom***
Students enter the classroom and begin each day on GREEN.
Colors for daily behavior...
Blue - means that I had an AWESOME day and I went above and beyond what was expected of me.
Green - means that I had a great day. Yellow - means that I had a few warnings to make good choices and I did not change my behavior. Red - means that I had several warnings to make good choices and I did not change my behavior.
***The students will be encouraged to make positive choices throughout the day and will always
have the opportunity to change their magnet back to GREEN.***
