IIn my classroom, I have had 4, 5 or 6 students per group. Each team is given a spiral binder. In the front of the binder, students will place the completed Team Log. This is found on page 7. Inside the binder, I place the team jobs into plastic sleeves. The description of each job is located on pages 11 – 14, 19 and 24. The plastic sleeves then act as dividers for the recording sheets for homework are found on pages 15-18; morning on pages 20-23; and behavior on pages on pages 25-34.
Teams brainstorm to choose their team names. The directions for how to do this is on pages 3 – 7.
Behavior management clip charts are found on pages 35 – 58. The letter sized charts can be placed in team binders – one for each student. Students will use a paper clip on these charts. If using a class chart, use clothes pins – one for each student. The paper clip or clothes pin will be moved up or down depending on the child’s behavior during the day. All students will start on yellow (an okay day and ready to learn). If you want to warn a student about his or her behavior without bringing attention to this student, you can use the small cards (page 49, 54, and 57) to tell students how they are doing. Just place this card on the student’s desk.
I keep a record of when a student moves their clip down and record what the problem was. This is found on pages 25 – 28. There is a Reflection Sheet (page 29) for students to complete when they move their clip down two spots to the red. Additionally, there is a Behavior Alert (page 30) sheet that may be used to notify parents of their child’s behavior.
Lastly, I included a partner form. This helps to partner students quickly. Each student pairs up with another student and writes his/her name down on number 1. Then, each students pairs with another student and writes their name down on number 2. Continues until all numbers are complete. Then when I want to pair students up, I say, pair up with your phone buddy number 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6.
Team Log: Students complete the Team Log with their team. They decide the jobs they want as a team. Once jobs are assigned, they write their names onto the sheet. This sheet is then placed in the plastic sleeve in the front of a binder. Each team has their own team binder
Team Job: Students will follow the directions on each sheet to complete his/her job assigned to be a good team member. All students should be assigned a job to help build the best teams.
These sheets should be placed in team binder.
At the end of the day, Facilitator’s fill out behavior for each member of his/her team. If a child has a problem, this can be written on behavior sheet as well. This sheet can be sent home with interim and with report card.
If a child does not do his/her homework. Data Manager writes down the date and type of homework not completed. This sheet can be sent home with interim and with report card.
Coach records how much each person on his/her team completed his/her morning work. This sheet can be sent home with interim and with report card.
Team Building: Teams can work together to come up with a team name, motto, and goals. Some teams even come up with their won chants.
Individual Team Log: Individual Team Members complete this form. This will show their teammates they understand their roles on the team. and each person can also set individual goals to help their team.
