This chart is recommended for school aged children (1st-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 his/her students the opportunity to earn rewards and/or privileges throughout the school day by using this visual motivational tool to remind them to stay on task.
This chart can be effective for keeping students on task during table-top and seat work activities throughout the school day, 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 stay on task.
