Do you have students on the RTI/MTSS caseload? Do you have students who struggle with behavior in your classroom? Do you have students who would benefit from daily feedback from their teacher? Do you have students who need an extra incentive to make the right choices in your classroom?
I’ve created these SIMPLE and MANAGEABLE behavior charts for all sorts of students in my classroom.

To use these behavior charts/checklists most effectively, I develop an individualized behavioral goal for a student who is struggling with behavior in my classroom. Most often, the goal is: I will listen to my teacher and I will follow directions. I then have a discussion with the student about this goal and what his/her behavior should look like. Often, I create a picture story that the student can read to go along with his/her behavioral goal. I then decide how many ☺ the student will need to earn to receive a prize at the end of the week. (I start each student off with a VERY ATTAINABLE goal) My prizes are very simple (and cheap or free) and consist of either a sticker, a stamp on his/her hand, or lunch with me…the teacher! Throughout the day, I simply record a ☺ or a ☹ before lunch and before dismissal, depending on the student’s behavior. Sometimes, I will jot down a positive note, or make note of a behavior that was a real problem! I attempt to recap the student’s daily behavior at the end of each day, and discuss the entire week on Friday afternoon! The student brings the chart home on Friday and we begin a new one on Monday!
These charts have proven to be very effective in my classroom when the child is well aware of it and understands the goal, and when used consistently and with fidelity! This school year alone, I have had 2 students with behavior problems that used these charts and only needed them for 6 weeks! The charts are no longer necessary in my classroom as the behaviors have subsided! ☺
I hope you find these useful for you, your students, and your classroom! If you use them, please let me know how it goes! I would love to hear success stories and/or suggestions!
