    Hi,

    I am working on my behavior chart for next year. I am making a new one because my old one is on the check system, and now I am flipping cards.

    So far, it is very basic- All I have put is the days of the weeks in a big grid (so I can write the behavior for the day in each big square), a space for comments and parent/student signatures at the bottom, and that is it.

    I am wanting to put abbreviations for common things (to help save time) at the bottom. So far I have though of

    RR-Restroom
    HW-Homework
    D-Disrespectful

    What am I missing. I hated mine last year because it didn't have enough abbreviations on it - but I guess I should have wrote what I wanted down :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the help!!!

    I put my class rules on the bottom - and they are numbered. Then I write the number of the rule that the student didn't follow. This means the rules have to be a little more specific, though. I have used T for talking, FD for follow directions, and OT for off task.

    what about..
    CR classroom
    LR Lunchroom
    LB library
    H Hall

    This helped us see a pattern with my son last year that he only lost points when he was out of the classroom. At lunch, in the halls or the restroom.

    Thank you! Keep them coming! I had 1-2 parents who HATED my behavior chart (they said that I wasn't specific enough) So I am trying to fix that for next year.

    I appreciate a parents perspective as well!

    That is a good idea to use the abbreviations. A teacher that I interned with used to keep comments already printed off on labels and she would stick the corresponding label to their planner when they had an "off" day.
