Behavior Reflection Sheet – Lower Grades

PDF | 1 page|Grades: K, 1 - 3

A resource to help younger students reflect upon unexpected behaviors.

Did you know that the word ‘discipline’ actually comes from the Latin word ‘disciplina’, meaning ‘to teach?’

During the course of any school day, our students will make the occasional poor choice when it comes to their behavior. It can be tempting to simply reprimand the student involved, and move along with our day.

The unfortunate truth of this approach is that it fails to capitalize on the ‘teachable moments’ presented by these indiscretions. By encouraging students to reflect upon the emotions and motivations behind their unexpected behavior, we can guide them to make better behavior choices in future situations. This is discipline in its truest sense.

This resource has been designed to help younger students reflect upon their behavior choices. It is strongly recommended that this be done in collaboration with a supportive adult who can gently guide the student through the process.

While using this resource, the students will:

  1. Draw a picture of what happened.
  2. Identify (from the list of reasons provided) why the behavior is not acceptable.
  3. Identify how they were feeling when the behavior took place.
  4. Identify some strategies that could be applied if the situation happens again.

Space is provided for both student and teacher to sign the document, which you may wish to keep as a record for future reference.
