***UPDATED ON 5/07/2017- The calendars have been updated to include June 2017-July 2018. You can get a head start on your copies before summer break! I also included the original class rainbow chart so that you have more options to choose from!
We all know how important it is to set up routines and expectations the first few days. Behavior is definitely on the top of that list. It can make or break a year. I love using a rainbow clip chart because it allow students so many more options throughout the day. This pack has lots of different ideas and options to help you set up a easy and fun behavior system in your classroom that will really help the students take responsibility of their behavior.
***Please look at the preview for more ideas and pictures of how a rainbow behavior clip chart could work in your class…along with all the different printables that I have included. Although the preview shows older graphics and dates, everything has been updated and included for the 2016-17 school year.
*Class & individual options for the rainbow behavior chart. The smaller, individual ones can be used on student desks, small groups, or even as a reminder at home for parents and kiddos. Color & BW versions have been added.
*A parent communication log for rainbow behavior for each month. My students keep their behavior calendar in their homework folder and fill it in on a daily basis at the end of the day. Parents review and sign each night so that they know how their kiddo did at school that day. A calendar is included for each month of the year (including July…).
*A behavior calendar for the kiddos to fill out and use at school to track how their behavior has been throughout the month. We use this everyday and then take their calendar to fill in the monthly behavior graph for their data binders.
*An individual student rainbow behavior bar graph for each month. At the end of each month, I conference with the kiddos and we fill out their bar graph of their behavior and try and set a new behavior goal for the upcoming month. This is a great sheet to show parents and staff at parent conferences, meetings, or IEP’s. I keep these all year long in the data binders I have for each student. They can see how their behavior has progress (or not progressed) throughout the whole year.
*Parent note to send home with the individual rainbow charts at the beginning of the year. Two different options are available (a note from the kiddo or teacher) with color & BW options.
*Incentive charts for the students in a variety of colors. I use these on a daily basis. At the end of each day, students who were ‘superstars’ get a sticker to put on their incentive charts. After a row is filled in, they get a small treat from me. Once the whole grid is filled in, they get to look forward to a bigger prize and an award at our quarterly assemblies. You can set these up in a variety of ways. There are two versions included with LOTS of different color options.
*“Superstar” award for students to receive as they are filling in their superstar incentive charts. Many different options are available with different student clipart. I give these out at our quarterly award assemblies, and they are presented to the students in front of their family and peers.
*“Superstar” nametags or stars that can be used for any students who are worthy of such a cute and awesome reward. I set these up with the incentive charts at the beginning of the school year. There are two versions (blank & “_________” is a superstar) with lots of different color options.
I have a colleague who lets her kiddos decorate their own star when they get to school, as well as choose what color incentive chart they want to start with. I personally like having these all up and ready on the first day of school. As a reward after earning enough stickers to fill up an entire incentive chart, my kiddos get to pick what color clothes pin, incentive chart, and superstar they get next. By the end of the year hopefully there are lots of different superstar colors around our rainbow behavior chart
