Tired of clip charts, need a new behavior management system for your classroom that is easy to use and set-up?
I have never been a big fan of clip charts. I have tried them in various classrooms and they worked ok, but I always forgot to have students move clips up. I felt they were more of a pain then a way of encouraging good behavior. However, I have made them for friends and even sell them in my store. Some of my best friends use them and love them. Over the last two years I have been reading all I can on Whole Brain Teaching and my ideas in this system stem from the layout of some of the Whole Brain Strategies. The system I am going to share today is my tried and true system that I have used in many first, second, and third grade classrooms. It works wonderfully and it is easy to use and set-up. You can get this system by clicking here!
Most recently, I used this with a third grade class and it worked wonderfully. My students are well behaved and on task when I use this system! They really enjoy the structure of the program. I want to share how I use this plan with you and the printables you need to create this resource in your classroom. It includes two parts:
Mystery Star Student System and Fun Friday Award System Using the Whole Brain Teaching Scoreboard System.
Both Systems are explained to you in the set. I suggest you use both of these systems together.
Mystery Star Student focuses an individual student behavior and encourages students to stay on task just in case they are the star student. It involves minimal set-up. You will need to put together a jar and purchase craft sticks. All printables needed to run this part of the system are included. Also, my directions and set-up of the system are also found in the set!
The display below is also explained in the set. All printables to make all items seen in this post are found in the set!
The second part of my system focuses on whole class behavior and is modeled after the Whole Brain Teaching Scoreboard. I explain it is more detail in the set.
In this set I explain how I to use the printables in the classroom. All you have to do it read about the system to understand it. I believe it is very easy to start-up and understand. A few items to print and laminate and you are ready to go. When I took on a long-term substitute third grade position, I created these printables and had them printed and ready to go in less than an hour. That includes the time to laminate and cut! So if you are in a pinch—this should make you happy!!!
