Class Behavior Chart.

We have a classroom behavior chart with three colors- green, yellow and red. Every student has a clip with his/her name written on it on the chart. We begin each day with all name clips on green. If they break a rule, their clip is moved to yellow. If they misbehave or break a rule again, their clip is moved to red. If they show an improvement in their behavior their clip will be moved back to yellow or green again! At the end of the day if a student ends up on red, the parent will be notified either by a phone call, note or email.

Each student also has a bucket with their name on display in the front of the class. (They have learned how to be bucket fillers and not bucket dippers!) When a student is being kind to a friend, sits well on the carpet, walks nicely in the hallway etc they earn a pompom. Likewise when they exhibit unacceptable behavior or are not doing their work they lose a pompom. When they get 10 pompoms they get a prize from the prize box and take a note home from me.
