Need an easy, visual way to help students and you monitor behavior? This is just the item for you.
This set includes…
• 2 behavior management system charts. One has labels and the
other is blank for you to add your own wording if you so chose.
• Labels for you to write your students names on.
All students begin the day on green, meaning they are ready to learn. As the day progresses and behaviors change, students’ clips can be moved. If their behavior goes above and beyond your expectations, move them to blue for having a fantastic day. If their behavior deteriorates, then move their clips to yellow, orange, or red as needed.
Blue (Fantastic Day) and green (Ready to Learn) could be used to earn trips to the treasure box or any type of “treat” you use for positive reinforcement.
Yellow, orange, and red are used to correct negative behaviors. Here’s how I use them. Yellow (Think It Over) is a warning. Orange (Teacher’s Choice) is usually loss of some recess time in my class. However, depending on the “crime”, the punishment can change. Red (Uh-Oh) is usually a note/phone call home or, if need be, a trip to the office.
To assemble: Print, preferrably onto cardstock. Line the cards vertically or horizontally based on how much room you have. To cutesy it up even more, the cards could be hot glued to a long strip of decorative ribbon, add a cute bow to the top, and hang.
Each student will need a “clip” with their name on it, this could be a clothes pin, a binder clip, Velcro dots, or magnets. To cutesy up the “clip”, you could use the attached doodle frame or use a clip art cut-out that matches your classroom theme, just print, laminate, and glue it to your “clip” of choice. Laminate before you write their names so you can use year after year.
