I use this cards in my classroom to keep parents informed about what goes on in the classroom. You are able to send home information about student behavior and class performance, all you have to do is circle a number or letter!
I start off every day with the students taking their cards out of their homework folders. Everyone starts with an E (excellent) mark and our goal is to end the day like that. If a students breaks one of my classroom/school expectations, then we go down to S (satisfactory), N (needs improvement) or X (unacceptable).
There are also numbers included and the student never wants one of those numbers to be circled. The numbers mean he didn't do his homework, classwork or he was not respectful.
I then trade cards that are 85% positive for a tangible reward at the end of the month.
Contacting parents frequently is very important, but it can be time consuming when you have a classroom with 20+ students. This helps me keep it going with ease. (Parent Contact!!)
