Use these "Stay on Track" visual cues for your weekly behavioral charts. Laminate whole sheets of colored construction paper and tape them in a color coordinated line (orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink) to make a color race track. Using clothespins each marked with a child's name, begin with everyone on the orange as the starting line. Making good choices moves a child up a color. Each day they are encouraged to move up at least one color. The "Stay on Track" visual cues are used to remind the children where they should be by the end of the day. For example, I use a ticket system in my classroom. If I see a child is making good choices, I reward that child with a ticket that they may clip onto their clothespin. When they have received three tickets, they advance to the next color. So ideally, in my preschool class each child should be seen making at least 3 good choices a day to reach the end of the race track. Each child to do that and reach the pink finish line by the end of the week is rewarded with a surprise related to our theme. Surprises have been playing inside a tent for a camping theme, making popcorn in a old time popcorn machine for carnival theme, face painting and sand art also for carnival theme, a gymnastics performance for Olympics theme. The idea is to reward more with a personal experience rather than physical items. Moving back down the track is not recommended, as the focus is to support and reward positive behavior, rather than punish for negative choices. Race track is just one idea & can be modified for various behavior charts and age level classrooms.
