Right now I'm trying to make a minimalist behavior management plan. In my school kids who really need a plan will end up having their own and typically the others don't need a formal plan at all. Mostly, I'm hoping for a way to inform parents quickly as to their child's daily behavior... I have an assistant who can add any specific notes as needed. Has anyone used this variation of the card colors (when students switch their colors based on misbehavior)? Students all start on green at the beginning of the day. Yellow cards would be moved as a warning, then red cards as a more extreme or persistent problem. The new idea I read about, was including a purple card to allowing it to be earned for an exceptionally good day. Have you tried it? Has the "bonus" card been effective and helpful? The description I read mentioned that many behavior problems may be corrected if another child gets to earn their bonus card, serving as a reminder to the child making poor choices (that may not work where I am, but it's worth a try). I like the positive management spin it adds this way. I'd love any thoughts or feedback on this or other ideas.
