Happy Friday Friends! We wanted to share with you how our behavior clip chart system is going this year. This is our first year of implementing this in our classrooms and we absolutely LOVE it! We have tied it in with our school wide behavior/reward system and our students feel so proud when their clips are moved up. If you'd like to see our examples of our clip charts you can scroll down through the post HERE.
This behavior system was working so well, and after the first few weeks we really wanted to reward the kiddos who made it to outstanding. We thought about several ideas and came up with the option of allowing our students to customize their clips with pieces of ribbon.
Here's what we do:
Before lining up the kids for busses and pick up, we review the chart. Using a spreadsheet with the kids' names, we put a tally by the students who've made it to outstanding.
When a student has made it to outstanding 3 times, they get to choose a piece of a ribbon to customize their clip. We then glue their piece on after school.
How cute are these?
We made sure to get our state's college colors and some theme related ribbons as well.
Our kids love this and we too are having so much fun finding different ribbons for them to choose from!
Here are some close ups of a few clips with ribbon pieces:
After a clip has 5-6 ribbon pieces, the student gets to take their clip home and then start all over again. We haven't had anyone fill up their clip yet, but we are thinking about 5-6 pieces should fill up a clip.
We also wanted to create a simple sheet for some of our students to take home that communicates with their family about how their day went. Here's a freebie that we would love to share with you.

Have a wonderful weekend, and if you use this clip chart system, we'd love to hear
how it works for you!
