This is an interactive, cooperative classroom behavior chart. I leave this on my Smart Board throughout the day to help students monitor behavior and to encourage them to remember to work together. One ballplayer is labeled for students and the other for the teacher. When the classroom receives a compliment and/or when the teacher determines they exhibit exceptional behavior, the student ballplayer is moved to the next base. The opposite occurs for poor behavior. Each time a player crosses home plate, the corresponding team earns a point. The first "team" to reach a predetermined number of points earns a class reward (chosen collaboratively ahead of time). For example: pj party, read-a-thon, bring a teddy bear to school, popcorn party, etc. If the teacher wins the students usually owe a recess. I have these in varying degrees for football, basketball and baseball and alternate them according to the particular sport season. They have proven to be very successful tools for classroom management.
