USING BEHAVIOR REFLECTION THINK SHEETS IN YOUR CLASSROOM
Are you looking for compassionate think sheets for your restorative classroom management practices? These Restorative Behavior Reflection Repair Plans invite students who have broken a school rule or expectation to reflect on what they’ve done. In particular, these worksheets help students to identify their feelings and voice their unmet needs. Next, students acknowledge the other people that their choices impacted. Then, they reflect on how they can make more helpful choices in the future. And finally, students think about how they can make amends to those who have been harmed.
Your students will love how inviting and easy to fill out these forms and choice board are. Moreover, there are 5 different formats for differentiated instruction, with different levels of visual cues. Teachers and counselors have successfully used these think sheets across elementary school grades, from kindergarten to 5th grade.
PERFECT FOR YOUR RESTORATIVE JUSTICE TRAUMA SENSITIVE CLASSROOM
These behavior reflection worksheets are a great classroom behavior management tool to implement in your trauma informed classroom. Grounded in restorative justice language, these “think sheets” avoid a shame-based narrative (i.e. the notion that the student “is bad”), and instead focuses on the notion that the student made a “bad” choice, but is not a “bad” person. By focusing on the behavior, and not on the person, students can learn from their mistakes. This means they can better take responsibility and accountability for the choices that they made and identify the skills they need to work on. And perhaps most importantly, these reflection sheets encourage students to repair relationships.
