Effective school research says for success in schools we should:
1. Include high expectations for student success.
2. Build positive relationships with students.
3. Create consistent, predictable classroom routines.
4. Teach students how to behave successfully.
5. Provide frequent positive feedback.
6. Correct misbehavior in a calm, consistent, and logical manner.
CHAMPS is a positive proactive approach to classroom management that helps provide structures for positive outcomes in the classroom. CHAMPS will help your kids be more successful in school. CHAMPS allows teachers to positively reinforce, thus creating a most established rapport with their students.
It is an acronym which each letter represents an action:
C = Converstation: Can scholars talk to each other during this activity?
H = Help: How do scholars get the teacher's attention and their questions answered?
A = Activity: What is the task/objective? What is the end product?
M = Movement: Can scholars move about during this activity?
P = Participation: How do scholars show they are fully participating? What does work behavior look/sound like?
S = Success: When scholars meet CHAMPS expectations, they will be successful!
At Crabbe there are posters clearly stating the expectations for common areas scholars will be occupying. There are expected voice levels. Teachers remind students of their voice levels. All teachers in the building are using the same expectations. If a kindergarten teacher sees a 5th grade scholar and says that the voice level should be 0 - that scholar is aware of what that means.
Students learned about these expectations the first day of school and are reminded of what their expectations are many times a day. Feel free to begin a conversation with your child as we prepare for the new school year.
