A printout of four traffic lights: green, amber, red, dark red. These colours correspond to the following types of behaviour respectively: positive, minor, serious, very serious misbehaviour.

At the start of the lesson have all students’ names by the green light. Students who spend maintain positive behaviour throughout the entire day are awarded a green sticker/stamp in their diary. At the end of the term, the number of green stickers/stamps are added and the students with a certain number are awarded.

On the other hand, students who misbehave during the lesson go to the next colour on the traffic light system which corresponds to a series of disciplinary actions.
