Behavior Management: The Clipchart
How it works...
You will need a clothespin with every student's name on it.
Print and laminate the behavior chart. Display it where students will see it.
At the beginning of the day, students start out with their name on, "ready to learn".
When you notice students behaving well, move their clothespin up.
When students are not following classroom rules and expectations, move their pin down.
You may also have students add a sticker to their clothespin at the end of the day if they make it to outstanding. 5 stars collected can mean a change to a new color of clothes pin. Suggestions: blue, yellow or glittered clothespins!
Another reason for using this system is it's redeeming value for the students. If they are having a bad morning, there is an opportunity to turn it around!
I love it!
