This behavior chart is simple and easy to understand and use in your classroom. Five levels make it easy for students to recognize the direction they are heading with their choices.
Included in this item are the five levels of choice-making, each on their own page (for easy cutting!) and one full page of all of the levels, for easy referencing.
Levels are meant to also recognize students making those positive choices, as it is sadly easy to overlook those kids when we are dealing with other kinds of behavior in the classroom.
1) Outstanding Choices (purple)
2) Ready to Learn (green)
3) Warning: Make Better Choices (yellow)
4) In-Class Consequence (orange)
5) Office Consequence (red)
My suggestion is to use clips with numbers on them to have students move throughout the day, as needed. I always give students the opportunity to move back up, after turning their behavior around, without taking "back" consequences that they've earned. It's always best to make consequences not just "fit" the behavior, but to be timely in their delivery and release. (ie: Tommy immediately gets a time out in another classroom, and is welcomed back after 5 minutes. Then move on, and allow him to work his way back up to better choices on the chart.)
I hope you find some good use of this in your classroom!
