With this product, teachers can promote positive behavior during daily routines in the classroom. Teachers can laminate this chart and use a dry-erase marker or can print one copy per day if they prefer to hold onto the data for future reference.
Students on this plan can earn smiley faces, straight faces or sad faces, depending on how they do in various subjects throughout the day (unpacking, math, reading, writing, special, word study, science/social studies, and packing up). In addition to the normal daily routine, there are also 6 additional "other" options for the students to potentially earn (perhaps they lined up nicely or did well walking in the hallway- this could easily be added to the chart).
This behavior plan works best for students who may struggle to complete tasks throughout the school days and may need a little extra motivation. Before beginning the plan, the teacher would sit down with the chosen student and explain the daily expectations (what would earn him/her a smiley face, straight face, or sad face). They would also discuss the student's prize for that day if the daily goal is met (a certain amount of time on computers, extra recess time, iPad time, etc.).
Personally, I found this product to work best when starting with a lower expectation ("I will get 4 minutes of computers if I have 4 smileys. If I have more than 4 smileys, I will earn one more minute per extra smiley") and building up to a harder expectation ("I will get 7 minutes of computers if I have 7 smileys. If I have more than 7 smileys, I will earn one more minute per extra smiley"). Whatever the goal is for that specific day, the student does not earn any prize time unless the initial goal is met. I added the second part to the plan (earning an additional minute per extra smiley) because I found that it continued to motivate my students even after they completed their daily goal.
If you have any questions or something you would like me to add to the chart, please feel free to reach out to me. Thanks!
