This POLKA DOT clip chart will help to motivate your students to try to clip up to Outstanding.. The clip chart is based off of a clip chart system developed by Rick Morris.
The clothespins with student names on them start out the day clipped to the middle of the chart on ready to learn. The clothespins are clipped to the left and right edges of the Ready to Learn level of the chart. During the course of the day, the clothespins move up and down the chart based upon the behavioral choices each student makes. Good behavior causes the clothespin to move up one level. Conversely, inappropriate behavior will cause the clothespin to move down one level.
To assemble, print the header back with construction paper or cardstock, then laminate. Glue or tape the other pages in order vertically or horizontally if you choose and have the wall space. I usually back mine with black construction paper or cardstock to make it pop but it is not necessary. Then simply laminate & buy clothespins for each of your students. put it on the wall where students can reach it without distracting others.
