One of the easiest, most effective ways to manage behavior in the classroom is the Behavior Clip Chart. Each student has a clothespin with their name on it and these are clipped to the right side of the charts. They move up and down the chart all throughout the day depending on their behaviors.
Most clip charts include 6-8 charts. For my special education students I found that that this was too many steps for them to follow and that the charts provided no visuals, so I created this one for my class. This behavior chart system keeps the special needs student in mind by minimizing the number of steps to four and each clip card displays a child exhibiting the appropriate facial expression so that students can easily understand where they are at on the chart. It also serves as an opportunity to reinforce the learning of emotions. This system has been the best thing ever for managing behavior in my classroom and the accompanying “Take Home Daily Report” makes it even more meaningful for my students and holds them accountable for their behavior. The “Take Home Daily Report” is not included in this pack, but is a freebie on my TpT store that you can download to compliment this chart.
This set includes 4 charts:
Super, good, warning, sad
