This chart is recommended for school aged children (3rd-6th grades). The purpose of the First, Then Chart is to manage student behaviors with the use of positive reinforcements. The classroom teacher can provide student/students the opportunity to earn rewards and/or privileges throughout the school day by using this visual motivational tool to remind students to stay on task.
This chart can be very effective for encouraging children to read chapter books, however it may take some time before you see results. It is important to be patient and consistent with your students when utilizing this chart, while providing each child with the positive encouragement and motivation they need until they are able to independently read chapter books.
