Use this chart to improve classroom behavior and encourage role model behavior. At the beginning of each day, all students’ pieces start on the turquoise “Ready to Learn” section. When you catch students making good choices (good behavior, helping others, etc.), tell them to move up a section. For behavior issues or children making poor choices, they move down a section at a time. Have predetermined consequences for the bottom 2 sections and discuss how the chart works with your class before you start to use it.
I give a small reward certificate (already printed and signed ahead of time) to students who are on “Role Model” at the end of the day. I included a sheet of these for you! I didn’t use color, so you can save your color ink. Just print one copy, sign each of the four cards, then photocopy and cut them apart. Keep a stack on your desk. At the end of each day, just add the date and students’ names to the cards and give them to your role model students. Your students will love them and so will their parents! It’s a fast way to encourage and reward great behavior!
At the end of the day, a child has the job of putting all the pieces back on turquoise for the next day.
To add names to the markers, open the pdf. Click on “Sign” at the far right on your top menu bar. Then click on “Add Text”. With your mouse, click on the picture where you want to add text, select your font and size and type.
I hope the chart works as well for your class as it has for mine!
