Rainbow Behavior Chart (classroom management, behavior modification)
There are many ways to assess and monitor students' behavior. One of the most popular ways to do this is through the use of behavior modification charts. This is my version, which is based loosely on the theories of Lee Canter.
Blue: Each day the students in your class start here. Every day is a brand new and everybody starts fresh.
Green: Everybody goofs and makes a bad choice every once in awhile. It's OK as long as we learn from them.
Yellow: Yellow is that 'warning zone' in which students need to stop what they are doing and start seriously thinking about what they are doing. They can change their behavior and still turn it into a good day.
When students are in yellow and green, they can move back to blue by doing good deeds without being told to, working hard, etc. Once the students drop to orange or red, they are there for the rest of the day.
Orange: The students' behavior is inappropriate and requires written contact to the parents.
Red: The student's behavior is extremely inappropriate and requires a phone call to the parents at home or work.
Students don't like to see themselves in the orange and red zones and will work hard to not get there again. Everybody has a bad day every now and then.
However, students who repeatedly land themselves in the orange and red zones need to be monitored closely to determine the cause(s) of their behavior.
There are 9 pages in this packet. Color version only. (Black and white versions would defeat the purpose.) For best results, print these cards onto cardstock and laminate.
Please look at the preview to see the full contents of the chart. A student record sheet has been included for home-school communication.
