I have created a behavior clip chart with a polka dot theme. This clip chart follows BIST procedures (Rethink, Safe Seat, Buddy Room, Recovery Room. http://www.bist.org/ )
The way the clip chart works in my classroom is each student has a clothespin with their name on it. Everyone starts on GREEN. If a student is making good choices they have the opportunity to move their clip up to the appropriate color (blue, purple and then pink.) If the are not making good choices the must move their clip down (yellow, orange, red and finally gray.) The students are always given the opportunity to make better choices and move their clips back up.
My students are the ones who move their own clips which helps them accept responsibility for their actions.
