I thought the idea of incremental punishment is good, gradually prolonging the loss of recess time gives teachers and students room to work and improve before giving them a harsh consequence for misbehaving based on the level of misbehavior.
The Behavior Alert shows the rules that were broken, and the students, as well as their parents, need to sign this. This is a great way for the parents to track their children's behavior and the teachers can also alert the parents if there are issues.

bravo behavior (FREEBIES!) (a year of many firsts)
Lots of people today need to really THINK before they speak. Too many people have forgotten how to be kind and speak with respect. The saddest part for me is that children are watching and learning how to imitate the same behavior.
