This is a wonderful classroom management system. Post the dots vertically or horizontally with the green "Ready to Learn" spot in the middle. If vertical, top to bottom should read: "Outstanding Behavior", "Excellent Behavior", "Super Behavior," "Ready to Learn," "Warning", "5 min. time out", "10 min. time out", "15 min. time out and phone call home". Each child begins the day with his/her clip on the green "Ready to Learn" spot. They can earn their way up the chart by making good choices throughout the day. Poor choices result in moving down the chart. The good thing about this system is that it is a fluid system. Children who have moved down the chart do have the opportunity to change their behavior and move back up. Students ending the day on "Outstanding" earn a special reward.
