I have been using these monthly calendar logs for several years to keep data on behavior and incomplete work issues. I print them back to back, have students write their name on them, and keep them in a binder on my desk. The goal is to keep your paper white, so students only color a space if there has been a behavior or work issue during the day.
Behavior Part of the Calendar Log:
For my classroom management plan I use a variation of the stoplight colors (green, yellow, red) and I add white and black. Each student in my class is assigned a number at the beginning of the year. I have a small pocket chart on the bulletin board near my desk. I labeled the pockets with student numbers so I don’t have to change names each year. Each student has a white (good behavior) card permanently stapled in their pocket. Students move a colored card on top of the white card as needed for each behavior problem. The colored cards remain in the pocket chart until the next morning. In the morning students know to come color their behavior chart (if necessary) as part of the daily morning routine before school starts. After coloring, they move all cards out of the pocket chart and start the new day with their white (good behavior) card.
Work Part of the Calendar Log:
I have an intervention time in the afternoon, so any students that haven't completed work for the day get extra help or time then and color the work portion of the chart accordingly after work is finished or the period ends.
There is a place included for a parent signature if you want to send the calendar charts home at the end of the month for review. I have also used these charts as a way to collect data for parent or IAT/IEP meetings.
I've noticed improvements in behavior and work because students want their charts to remain white. I usually have very few students that need to color their charts, so it doesn't take very long to do each day. I hope they are helpful for you!
