Behavior Clip Chart


This is the Behavior Clip Chart that I made last year. I did like how it worked in my classroom. I was tired of my green, yellow, red, cards. My kids needed a way to move up!  I have seen this idea on so many blogs last year, but first saw it at Sunny Days in Second Grade. I borrowed her polka dot border idea.:) Did add smileys... my kindergarten kids need the help of pictures. I did add a blue section - Excellent Effort. 
. This is how I hung it in my classroom - hung on ribbon. I needed it big to attach my 25 kindergarten clips! I have to redo it this summer - it was not laminated well. I thought about changing it, but it worked and goes well with my polka dot, zebra - sort of bright colored monkey jungle theme! :)

Hello, I am also using a clip chart. This is actually my first time using this system. I was tired of my green/yellow/red stoplight system. I need a change. I was wondering how did you attach the ribbon to the back of the cards? I found some really cute ribbon and I was thinking of doing mine kinda like that, but not sure how to do it. Thanks, my email is pks0221@suddenlink.net if you can email me.

Hi Louanne...love this clip chart. I teach kindergarten too. How did your kids do with understanding the smiley faces..as many of them couldn't read the words. Did you send a daily note home too?
Thanks! Dana

Okay Louanne I love your advice about my clipchart -- hot gluing it to the ribbon and then adding magnet to the back of the ribbon to stay put!!!! Excellent - I think you solved my problem!! Thank you for the wonderful advice!

Dana, I just found your blog, but could not post on it yet! I sent home a monthly communication sheet that was initialed and returned every day in each child's comm. folder. Each day, I gave each child a face :) if they stayed on green or up to blue, pink, purple. I have a superstar stamped that I also stamped over the smiley if they got on pink or purple. If a child got on purple, they got a sparkle rhinestone on their clip! If a child moved down to yellow - it was a warning and they still got a smiley face after we discussed... Moved to orange they got a :| straight face - meaning you can do better. On red, they got a :( sad face - hated to give those. The children caught on quickly and most parents paid attention and initialed folders daily. If a child received a :| or :( face - I added a note on a sheet behind the communication sheet. This is very wordy -hope it makes sense! :)
