In my classroom, I use sticker charts to go along with my class discipline system. If students stay on the right color, they receive a sticker at the end of the day. At the end of each week, if students have enough good days, they can get a piece of candy from the sweets drawer. At the end of the month, they count all of their stickers up and similarly if they have enough, they get into the treasure drawer. I only keep simple things in my treasure drawer that relate to school (new erasers, pencils, highlighters, etc.) and it is something to work toward that isn't a silly toy.
For the longest time, I was buying the cutesy sticker charts from the teacher stores and even some dollar stores. But when you have 20-25 students and they all get a new one every month, the cost to purchase sticker charts quickly adds up! Not to mention purchasing the stickers as well. That's when I decided it would be nice to have a year of sticker charts that relate to holidays/events in that month.
I used simple clip art to create these and they're already labeled for Monday-Friday. There is a space at the top for students to write the month, and a space below for them to write their name. What I also like about using these homemade sticker charts is that I can print them on colored paper if I wish for a little extra decoration in the classroom. I let students decorate them themselves on the first day of the month, and they enjoy showing their creativity and having them hang for all to see.
There are 11 total, the only month I excluded was July since most of us probably aren't in school during that time. There is even one for August, though most of us don't start the school year until the last week or so. For September, I just used a generic pawprint because I thought it could apply to most schools, depending on your mascot, and students could decorate with school colors. I was trying my best to conserve paper when creating the sticker charts, so a few of them have 2 on one piece of paper. However, the rest are just 1 per page because the size ratio for typical stickers (small stars or circle stickers) would be off.
