Behavior Chart

Hey guys! I just wanted to share with you my behavior chart. I made it basing it on the example from Harry Wong. The students begin on "Good" everyday. During the day the students can move up or down depending on their behavior. I also allow those students who may have moved down the opportunity to move back up if their behavior improves. I do this because one of the many saying in my classroom (especially for math) is that it's okay to make a mistake as long as you learn from it. I also believe that those students who struggle with behavior have an incentive to move back up where as if they can only move down then they really don't have much of a reason to want to improve their behavior. For a student to move to excellent they have to exhibit behavior that is above and beyond the norm. I especially like to use this when the students shouldn't be talking, but they are and there is that one child sitting there doing exactly what they are suppose to. I call them out for their excellent behavior and they get to move their clip up. The other students then look to that student and mimic what they are doing in hopes of being excellent too. This is so much better than constantly fussing at all of the students for talking. 

To make- I used card stock with and glued the printed words to them. I then laminated it and now I can use this chart for a couple years. I use clothes pins to write students name on them. 

I hope you enjoy! 

Sports Themed Accelerated Reader Bulletin Board

Hey guys! In my classroom I have one bulletin board that changes with the Accelerated Reader (A.R.) theme each year. It's the only board that is not matchy matchy with everything else in the room. Last year our theme was oceans/underwater and I did a bulletin board with fish. (Check it out here!) This year our theme is sports. As I set out looking for bulletin board sets I struggled to find something that would work for what I need. Until I came across this bulletin board set....Scholastic Teacher's Friend Our Home Run Hitters! Mini Bulletin Board (TF8055)
It was perfect! I bought two of this set because it was pretty cheap and I needed more gloves than only one set offered. Honestly I really just wanted the gloves and baseballs, but I decided to use the other things in the set as a boarder so I wouldn't have to spend any more money for this board. I think it turned out super cute! Each student gets a baseball with their name on it. When they earn the appropriate amount of points they get to move their baseball to the glove with that number on it.
