I created this clip chart because my students who choose not to follow the rules on a daily basis can never remember what they did wrong at the end of the day and why they had to “move their clip” on our regular clip chart. Unfortunately, there are days that are so chaotic, that I also cannot remember the reasons that all of my students moved their clip on our regular daily clip chart. I try to write it down throughout the day, but this often just does not get done.
I will assemble this “Why I moved my clip” clip chart and laminate it. I will have a supply of mini clips with my students names on them. Throughout the day when my students move their regular clip on our behavior clip chart, I will also have them place a mini clip with their name on it on this clip chart. At the end of the day, I will look at the clips and use this chart as a quick reference to why students moved their clips. This will make documenting student behaviors much easier. I WILL USE THIS IN ADDITION TO MY REGULAR CLIP CHART. MY REGULAR CLIP CHART WILL SHOW WHAT COLOR THE STUDENTS ARE ON. THIS CHART WILL SHOW THE REASON THEY MOVED THEIR CLIP.
I have also provided a set of charts that students can write their name on with expo marker if a rule is broken. This could be used instead of clips.
The rules on the chart include:
I need to work on sitting quietly at my seat.
I need to work on walking in a line correctly.
I need to work on raising my hand for permission to speak.
I need to work on cleaning up quickly.
I need to work on keeping my hands to myself.
I need to work on sharing with my classmates.
I need to work on being kind to others.
I need to work on sitting quietly while my teacher is teaching.
I need to work on following directions.
