This Firefly themed Clip Chart is a great visual aid for progress throughout the day which helps provide the children accountability over their own choices and behaviors. All children will start on Green: Ready to Learn for the day. They will be encouraged to move their clip up throughout the day by following classroom rules. Should a child move down, they will also be encouraged to make better choices in order to move their clip up.
I have had a lot of success in the past with this set up. However, it can have the potential to be a negative IF the emphasis is always on the color they achieved. I encourage all parents to ask specific questions about their day and not focus solely on the color. There will be a few weeks of adjustment time. The overall goal will be to emphasize that our choices affect the outcome of our day. Furthermore, we can choose to change our reactions to things and have an even better day!
