I think I’m the last one on the behavior chart train, but I just found out about it from my BFF (happens to teach next door to me) and when I saw it I had to give it a try.
I started using it after spring break and WOW! It has made a huge difference in my classroom. The kids take so much more responsibility for their actions and they strive to reach the top to the “Fabulous Falcon” mark. I used “Fabulous Falcon” because our mascot is the falcon and our principal always says fabulous. It went together really well.
Here is my chart:
I cut it out using my Cricut with a couple of different shapes. The shapes were then laminated for protection and I attached the whole thing using different colors of twine. Never hurts to have cute and useful things in the room:) The clothespins are from Walmart, only for $2. Each time that they reach the Fabulous Falcon level they receive a little gem on their clip. If they go above this level I say that they are “off the chart!” and they get to pick where to put their clip. I got this idea from THIS post 🙂
Each day the students record the color that they end the day on. I use this form to communicate with parents. You can download it by clicking on the image below. I copy it onto half sheets to save on paper.
I was creating these clip charts for teachers a couple of years ago, but due to my schedule I’m no longer able to do so. I have created several clip charts that you can print at home to create a chart similar to mine. This is what they look like:
