Kindergarten Classrooms
I teach kindergarten and each teacher on our team have students who misbehave frequently and have constant behavioral issues. The administration is reward those students when they do well in attempt to improve their behavior. However the other students are seeing these students being rewarded and now they are wondering why they don't get those same rewards. It is a difficult situation. How can we improve the behavior of some of these students without making a difference?

In the younger grades the students thrive on positive reinforcement. If you have a positive behavior management system for all students then even those that behave appropriately on a regualar basis are rewarded. For the students with behavior difficulties, they are still able to experience success for small steps toward appropriate behavior. With a positive behavior management system everybody is being rewarded for good behaior and everybody wins!

I like your solution because you give every student the opportunity to achieve successful behavior, even those that struggle in this area. It is important to allow every student to experience success so that they will continue to work towards positive behavior.

I agree. All students, especially one at such a young age, should have the opportunity to work towards rewards.

Exactly. No need to make the kids like you unnecessarily.

implement a new behavior management strategy in your class as well. Positive reinforcement and reward systems work well with all students. Though they may not be receiving the same rewards as the individuals receiving a more individualized behavior intervention, they will still work hard to maintain and/or improve their behavior.

Kindergarten students that are not receiving the rewards should be told what is expected of them and ways we can work on students achieving rewards. If the student doesn't change after the rules have been stated maybe have goals the students need to meet in the classroom.

Any source of Positive Reinforcement is going to encourage students to behave. Positive reinforcement with rewards is almost always a sure thing. I would explain to the other students that the students who are receiving the rewards are striving to be like them, It will encourage those students to be on their A game.

I would try to remind students everyday that if you work really hard you might get an award. Point out a student that is doing an excellent job so that the students can look to them as an example.

The students should only be rewarded when they show positive behavior. If you use a clip up/clip down system to keep track of behavior then the students can only clip up when they show positive behavior. On the other hand, if a student misbehaves then he or she clips down on the chart. The clip system does not reward students for good behavior unless they have shown it. Therefore no student receives a reward (clipping up) unless they have done something good to receive it.

I would make some kind of reward system in the classroom for the students so that everyone is being rewarded for good behavior, not just the students who have behavioral issues.

I would have the students pulled out if they are receiving a reward. However, to reward the behavior of those students who always behave give weekly homework passes, lunch with the teacher, or treasure box. All students will then be able to participate and feel included, however make a point system or incentives in place so they must earn the rewards.

Positive reinforcement an go a long way for a child. If you make them feel good about themselves they will be less likely to misbehave. Try to only give rewards to the kids that really deserve them and make sure you distinguish the point the student was at and the point they are at now to deserve that rewards. Some kids don't understand that different expectations are set for different kids depending on the level that the are at

There are times when bad behavior has to be rewarded just to get students to see that good behavior is expected. I would definitely try to go above and beyond for those who are always behaving well. If you keep track of student behavior and reward students who meet specific behavior goals. I think its ok to differentiate behavior goals for students who struggle with behavior. You could make the reward for students who always behave an ice cream party or something big and the reward for students who misbehave something good but not as great as an ice cream party.
