Classroom Behavior

Like many of you, I have a classroom behavior chart where students move their clip if they have a behavior challenge... but sometimes, some students need more.  They need more praise, they need more reinforcement, they need more feedback.  I created this to use in my classroom with a few of my students... not all.  Click on the pic to download it.
Initially, I will tape these to the student's desk and we will (hopefully) celebrate their good behavior at the end of each subject change.  As things improve, I will move these to a clipboard at my table.  My ultimate goal is to phase these our completely as their behavior falls into line with the rest of my crew.  This is also a great intervention to use for students in the RTI process. 

Now, my schedule is not consistent each day of the week due to our special area classes, but I am not going to have a different chart for each day of the week.  I think the icons will be sufficient.

If you want to make your own and use my template click here for the word version.  NOTE:  because of the clip art terms of use, I had to remove the graphics.

What tricks to you have for those kiddos who need more support when it comes to behavior?

  1. Deedee, one of my School Family Jobs is the cheerleader. This child gets a party horn for the week to use when celebrating other children he/she notices being helpful. The cheerleader goes up to that child and says "I am going to celebrate you for sitting criss cross on the rug" or "I am going to celebrate you for taking Joshua's helpful reminder." My kiddos LOVE this!

    I have a bubble necklace I wear everyday for me to use when celebrating the kiddos! This is a HUGE success and they adore being celebrated with bubbles!

    We also add "helpful hearts" to fill our classroom bucket and this really helps ALL of the kiddos be more reflective of their behavior and others. You can read more about this on my blog.

    1. Great idea!!! We're a PBIS school always seeing the positive...One thought...While this is a super idea that really motivates and celebrates positive choices, have you had any "Cheerleaders" that went overboard with this job?
