I wanted to change the size, the language, and the colors of the clip chart that I use for behavior management. I've been very guilty of sticking a negative connotation to the colors on the chart. I am so tired of red always meaning something bad. I want to stop that... so I did! Since pink is my favorite color ever, it is now the "home" spot on the chart!
My favorite new spot on this chart however, is the next to last spot on the clippy thingie.... instead of saying "warning" or "teacher choice," I decided to label it, "Let's Make a Plan." With any hope, this will help keep the munchkins (AND ME) accountable for making important changes in behavior, learning patterns, discipline, behavior management, and/or classroom management that will help keep all kids on task and successful. I have big plans for this upcoming year!
There is also a take-home connection piece to this clipchart inspired by a post at First Grade Fanatics: http://firstgradefanatics.blogspot.com/2011/10/do-you-use-behavior-clip-chart.html# Grab it if you like, or visit their site to grab an awesome copy of the more traditional color chart take-home piece.
