I've been so impressed with all of the adorable behavior clip charts that I've seen this summer. There are some amazing designs, and it really made me want to do one. However, it is really difficult to implement that type of system when you switch classes, and I team with another teacher. I've found that you really need something that goes with your students, rather than stays in your classroom. Through trial and error, I think I've finally found a system that works for us. It's very basic and low maintenance, but we like it. I've made a behavior management form that we print out each week. We use it for keeping track of behavior, reading logs, and homework. I will add that I'm not a huge reading log fan, but we really don't have a choice, so I added it. I love having all this documentation on one piece of paper and was surprised to see how handy it could be during parent conferences. I clip the chart on a clipboard and hang it on the wall with a 3M hook. You can click on the link below for a copy of the form. I've left it in Word, so you can make changes as needed, so hopefully it will still look okay.
