Sometimes a student’s behavior necessitates a self-contained setting. Use this sheet to plan his/her day and to track progress on work. In my behavior classroom, I also encouraged “chores” to keep our classroom neat. These chores could include things such as vacuuming/sweeping, wiping down tables and chairs, organizing books, returning supplies to other teachers/classrooms, dusting, washing windows, returning work, and washing the whiteboard. Some students saw these chores as rewards. Some saw them as punishments.
In some cases students, need tools to work better independently. This sheet can be a part of that process. Students meet with their teacher or other adult to plan the daily tasks and assignments. As the work is completed and checked, this sheet helps students to indicate where they are in that process.
Use colored pens, pencils, markers, and highlighters to indicate priority (complete the red tasks, assignments, and chores first), different sections of this sheet, or as motivators.
This sheet can also help students to plan their schedules and tasks outside of the school setting.
Collate these sheets in a comb-bound, spiral-bound, or three-ringed notebook.
Print on duplicate paper, triplicate paper, or use carbon sheets to use this document for school-to-home communication or to retain copies for files and sharing.
Print on cardstock paper and laminate to use the chart for multiple days. Use dry erase or wet erase markers to write in the tasks, assignments, and chores. Photographs of this sheet can be used for documentation if necessary.
Use the “Notes” section to offer encouragement and reminders. You could even include an inspirational quote or verse!
