Please preview for an idea of what the chart will look like!
I’m sure you’ve heard of a Clip-Chart. If not, you can search through Pinterest and found a countless number of examples. Essentially, a clip chart is a behavior management tool… & I’ve put a spin on it to create a student AR (Accelerated Reader) display!
Give each student a clothespin. You can spray paint them for a fun look, write their names or assign student numbers. When students reach 25 points, they receive their clothespin and clip to 25 points. Every 25 points after, students clip up! This also serves as a tool for you to see how students are progressing!
What happens after students reach 200?...because the chart only goes that far! This will inevitably happen in my classroom. I have 2 suggestions. One, students receive a new clothespin & their old one goes onto the “Hall of Fame” to show the student has made 200 points. Another idea is the student will review a plastic gem sticker to put onto their clothes pin, signifying the 200 points, and beginning back at 25.
Perfect for a Jungle or Safari themed classroom!
