I use this system with my first grade students but it could easily be implemented in classrooms with older or younger students.
Each day we use the color chart to encourage positive behavior. If the student stays on one warning or anything better they receive a sticker for the day. If they do not they will get a note in their calendar (usually I just write the numbers in the key unless something out of the ordinary happened. If the behavior becomes a huge issue I will write a note to the family in the communication log that I copy onto the back of each calendar.
The calendars go home in the students’ folders each night. At the end of the month if the students have met their goal for stickers they will get a certificate and choose a reward card. I determine the goal of stickers based on how many days of school there are that month. I usually allow students to miss 2 days give or take worth of stickers to meet their goal.
The best part is at the end of the month I make a photo copy of each students' calendar and I have a behavior record for every student with notes and family communication. It is perfect for students that you need to get services for the rest of your class.
