This system is simple to understand.
Your birdie (on cardstock, laminated, and hotglued to a clothespin with student’s name on it) starts soaring on the cloud level and then can move up or down depending on behavior. To get to the sun is the best and to be on the ground is the worst place to be!
To assemble print and laminate all pieces and cut. Then hot glue together and laminate again for durability Look at the diagram. The dark blue ribbons are actual ribbons you will attack so your birdies can hang on them or the edges.
As a suggestion I would put students that need to move up and down a lot in one color so you can grab it quickly.
The documents for this system are in another TPT product called BIRDIE SYSTEM DOCUMENTS.
