Students move their clip up or down depending on their behavior for that day.
Rewards: treasure box, tech time, high praise, lunch with movie
Consequences: Notes home, time out of activities, no recess, or other options as necessary.
In each unit of study our students will be working within a scale of skills that need to be mastered. The goal is to achieve a level three or higher to be on grade level.
Level 1 on the Scale

Level 2 on the Scale
Level 3 on the Scale
Level 4 on the Scale
This is when students need assistance to be successful understanding the foundational content needed to achieve their learning goal.
This is the foundational content that each student needs to understand in order to achieve the learning goal. If a student does not have these foundational skills they may not be able to master the level three content.
This is our learning goal!
In order for students to be on grade level, each student needs to master these skills and be able to apply them.
When a student reaches a level four on the scale they are able to extend their thinking beyond the application in class. In everyday situations they can apply and evaluate this knowledge.
