I use this lesson with 2nd - 4th grade students to help them understand the connection between their behavior and the consequences they receive. I start by drawing this on the board. We talk about the idea of "fair" in that it's not fair that positive behaviors get negative consequences, the same way that it's not fair that negative behaviors get positive consequences. Then, I remind them that we learn most of what we need to know about positive behaviors in kindergarten, which is why I bring a story I read with kindergartners. We roleplay various negative behaviors that David exhibits in the book. I ask a student volunteers to be the teacher and react to my behaviors. We rehearse the phrase "Those are the rules" to remind students about what is fair. We end the lesson with students writing their own positive and negative behaviors and consequences.
This idea from Kindergarten Rocks is a wonderful way to check your students' understanding. When you ask comprehension questions after your lesson, students take turns swatting their answers. You can hang your chart paper on the wall or lay it out on the floor. If possible, laminate the paper so it can withstand more lessons.
I would use this activity to pre-test my students and to end a unit. If you're conducting many classroom lessons in a year, you'll need to change things up a bit. This is a perfect way to do so.
