I have used the clip chart system for three years. After using it- I thought that a few things would kick the system up a "notch."
I have made signs that state reasons for clip up and clip down moves. I have found that some items are worth more than 1 move up or down. I have had students in my class that really needed it in black and white what I am looking for to move clips up and down.
I also have a chart that states the items that I will allow students to try to move their clip back up.
I have a tally sheet witht he clip down moves typed down the left side and days of the week at the top. This can be a recording sheet to keep track of student mistakes.
I also have a simple behavior homework form included.
