"Super Star Behavior: Let your behavior shine!”
I created this chart to use in my kindergarten classroom. I mount them onto matching construction paper (the outstanding level is on a very shiny metallic silver paper) and tape them top to bottom to make a very tall chart with 6 on the top and 0 on the bottom. Laminate and hang. Each child has a clothespin that has their name on it. They can be moved up or down the chart according to their behavior. All of the children start on green - 3 stars “Ready to learn!” When a child is very on-task or does a good deed, he or she will earn an extra star and will move their name up to the blue – 4 star “Way to go!” section. If they are caught being extra good or helpful again, they will go up to the purple, 5 star “Great job!” section. Sometimes, the kids even reach the “Outstanding” rainbow level, which is 6 stars! That is hard to do! If a child chooses to break a rule, then he or she will lose a star and will move their name down to yellow – 2 stars where they are asked to slow down and “Think about it”. If another poor choice is made, their name will be moved down to orange – 1 star, “Teacher’s Choice” and there will be a consequence. If they lose yet another star, they will go down to red, 0 stars “Parent Contact”. There will be consequences for poor choices and positive reinforcement for good choices. I have used this type of chart in my classroom for the past 8 years and it is very effective! It is very visual for young children.
I also have matching monthly recording sheets. We staple a monthly behavior calendar into their daily folder. Each day, the child records the number of stars they earned that day. They can either write the number in the star, or circle the number on the little number line each day. There is a place for teacher and parent comments at the bottom if needed. This is available for free under my products.
