What to bring*

Positive Behavior Modification System

Behavior Butterflies

Children will have an individual butterfly on the class flower that has their name on it. At the beginning of each day the butterfly starts on the petals of the flower (the green portion.)

If persistent negative behavior occurs the child’s butterfly will be moved* down the stem to the first leaf, (the yellow portion), and eventually, if the behavior continues, the red portion or bottom leaf. Each child has the opportunity to move their butterfly back up to green through positive behavior.

*Movement of the Butterfly will be recorded on the child’s daily sheet.
