Follow up on Behavior Clip Chart and Freebie

I had read on Jodi's blog The Clutter-free Classroom that one of the best things she had ever done in her classroom was start a behavior clip chart. Well let me quote her BEST. THING. EVER. Flipping Cards-Sign the Book- Name on the board- no system at all. I have tried them all. The Clip chart is the best for the following reasons:

1. I hang it on the side of my lockers so that it is not a focus of our day, but I can easily move it to the front of the room to praise a child.

2. My teacher pleasers are rewarded-- and my stinkers. It is so easy to build a child up by simply saying-- "Ben, I love how you helped Jackson out with his problem. Go move your clip up."

3. I have record of their daily behaviors without all the hassle on me. I created a form that stays in my kids S.A.F.A.R.I binders and they color in their behavior for the day right before they pack up.

4. I can reward them without having a darn treasure box- never liked those things, ever. I am going to use my zebra-loving-soul-sister Christie from First Grade Fever's adorable punch cards to keep track of their progress. When they fill out the punch card they can pick a reward out of the binder. You should have seen their faces when I read swap seats with a friend for the day. You would have thought I promised them the moon.

Thanks for hanging out!

  5. I have always used a type of chart so that my kids can move up and down through the various levels. I have my colors go in rainbow order but I love how yours follows the more traditional 'red=not good'. I just created a sheet for my outstanding behavior kids that will go home in their daily folders. Check it out here at my site!

  6. this is new to me alway used the cards before So the way they move is by showing good behavior. I have 32 kid, just wondering how this would look. would kids always be getting up to move their clip. what happens to the kids who don't move? what do you do for kids who truly misbehave and are disruptive?

  7. Great Ideas! I'm always looking for a better system so perhaps this will be the way to go...

  8. @Mrs. M- I use itty bitty clips with their number on them (each child has a number for line up order) I have 24 but seven more would easily fit.

  9. It's your choice when to move their clips so I really quietly whisper to them... I don't let it become a distraction!

  10. I actually move the clips for my kids.. but I'm very vocal about it to reinforce or correct the behaviors. My kiddos are really just learning about school and how to act so it helps this see over and over what's expected or what's not allowed.

As I said some time recently, today is about velocity so I pull the Kayak style skirt over the cockpit of the Quest and secure it set up so just my eyes and protective cap are uncovered through the littlest of openings. The Quest now takes after a long smooth drop of downpour tumbling from the sky, nature's definitive outline of optimal design. Everything is great. Cash Advance

So when the auto you had always wanted is shimmering in the sun and the motor is murmuring to an immaculate pitch, keep it that path everlastingly, by placing it into the capacity animal dwellingplace for the frosty winter months.check cashing
