Classroom Management: Behavior Reflection Logs

It's back to school time again.  I know my brain starts the shift after 4th of July like all the retailers.  One of the first things I spend time reflecting about is classroom management.  Even after 15 years in the classroom I feel like this is one are where I can continually learn and grow as a teacher.  Yesterday I shared my Student-Friendly Behavior Learning Targets.  Today I'm sharing my Behavior Reflection Logs.

I've used these reflection logs in my classroom for nearly 15 years.  They've been tweaked a little over the years and I will continue to tweak them.  These are meant to help students reflect about their behavior choices and how they are going to change their behavior.  Every student has a bad day once in awhile.  Even my best students know that they too will have to fill one of these out.  It's about reflecting and learning to make different choices in the future.  We all make mistakes.  We just need to learn and grow from them.

There are versions for K-1 students and versions for 2nd grade through 3rd or even 4th grade students.  The younger students can draw pictures.  The older students or more capable students can write about their choices.  They are both in color and in black and white.  You can read more about them and grab them here in my TpT store.

Hope they help and lead to better choices!

Joya :)
