  • WOW! I am really impressed with our classes list of expectations. Now, what are some appropriate consequences for not following these expectations?

  • I think you should call their parents.
  • I think they should be sent to the principles office immediately!
  • I think they should have to appologize to the person they offended.
  • At this point the teacher may want to suggest levels of consequences. For example, first offence gets a warning, second offence student must think of a way to make it right, third offence means student intervention. The teacher may also bring attention to the victim and how they should be treated.
  • Our Classroom Expectations 1. We are Respectful 2.We Do Our Best Work 3. We are kind and Friendly 4. We are Safe 5. We Work Together as a Team
  • Remember these consequenes may be imposed on you one day. Do you feel like the consequences you came up with are justified or should there be some less harsh consequences for first time offenders?
  • After the expectations have been agreed upon and prominently posted in the classroom, the teacher should be consistent with expectations and consequences while the exhibiting respect expected from the students.
  • We Are Respectful. We Are Kind. We Are Safe. We Work Together as a Team.
