    We have a school wide chart!
    It has:
    blue
    green
    yellow
    red
    purple

    All students start on green and can move to blue if having a great day!

    I think student should pick the consequences for moving down a color and pick the reward for moving up. We set them at the beginning of the year and can change when they need too.

    I like the earlier idea of being Crabby. Or how about a jellyfish?

    how to remember student numbers

    I'm a new teacher and love the idea of hiding student names in a behavior management charts but I can't get my mind around the idea of remembering student numbers. I could imagine wanting to move a student up or down on the chart and me needing to take a minute to look up the student number. It would be time consuming and distracting to me. Do you all have a secret to this that I'm missing?

    You will be surprised how easy it is to remember them by numbers...especially some of them...

    Kids usually move their own clips. Keep a record somewhere of their numbers but you shouldn't need to memorize it (they're might be a few that you do)

    When I do attendance in a rush, have the children just call their numbers in order (instead of me calling names). The room sounds like "1, 2, 3, 4, 5,...". They all learn their number quickly and so do I.

    You can also make the numbers into a game to get the kids (and you) to memorize them. For time to line up I will call out odds, evens, multiples of five......etc. I also have the numbers on their name tags the first quarter of the year.

    I use their numbers for the equity sticks and many other things. I keep a cheat sheet on my desk for the first few weeks, then I don't need it anymore. Oh, and I have the behavior chart as a job, I don't stop teaching to move their magnets and I don't allow a student who is off task the opportunity to get out of their seat.

    Like Others I just number them alphabetically 1 2 3 etc. I also use them for equity sticks. Everything the students turn in has their number on it. Takes me about a week to memorize it. The kids don't even need me to monitor their line up they just watch for the number ahead of them to line up they even figure out who is absent that way. If someone is too slow to line up their neighbor will prod them.

    Sadly, I know my kids by number better than name. During fire drills, I look by number, not by names.
    Like Irissa, my class lines up in number order (not for fire drills - its just get up and go when that happens!). Sometimes we will line up skip-counting 2's. My kids write their number on their papers.
    Their book boxes are numbered (so I can reuse them year after year) and back when I did clips, their clips were numbered (again made it possible to reuse each year).

    I do use their names when speaking to them, but I know their numbers very well! And so do they!

    My kids got so fast at it they actually DID line up in number order for fire drills. Not that I told them too it was rather funny.

    My class is required to line up in number order everyday. It cuts down on misbehavior in line.

    Totally unrelated to the clip chart, but I was cleaning out my favorites and thought of you when I saw this ocean theme activity page:

    I really like this idea. I think I'm going to use a clipboard to keep up with the "stats" though. I don't have enough board space.

    As usual, I was too lazy to read the other posts but I'll jump in ;)

    I used this last year and really liked it. I made my own with construction paper and laminated it. I had 2 classes, so one class' clips were on each side. If they received a warning they moved their clip to a lamp I had nearby.

    If they got to "outstanding" they got a ticket and a sticker for their agenda. I made the stickers on Vista and it said Miss Pisces_Fish wants you to know my behavior today was outstanding!

    They could trade in tickets for stuff, like sitting at my desk, computer during independent reading time, lunch with me and a friend in the classroom, etc. Here's my list:


    3 TICKETS:

    ✮ Sit at Miss xxxxxx’s desk for Whole Group
    ✮ Go to the front of the lunch line
    ✮ Write with an erasable pen all day
    ✮ Read your MIRP book from anywhere in the room

    4 TICKETS:

    ✮ Teacher Assistant for one day
    ✮ Earn a sparkly gel pen or a cool mechanical pencil
    ✮ One extra day to complete your word study or reading log homework

    7 TICKETS:

    ✮ Sit next to a friend for Whole Group
    ✮ Skip one test question (multiple choice only)
    ✮ Free time/computer time during MIRP (10 minutes)
    ✮ Free time/computer time during morning work (10 minutes)
    ✮ Reading Log pass or Half-homework pass (word study)
    ✮ “Be the teacher” while we correct morning work
    ✮ 5 bonus points on a Word Study quiz

    10 TICKETS:

    ✮ Lunch with Miss xxxx in the classroom (you can bring a friend!)
    ✮ Choose a book to be read to the class (book must be approved)
    ✮ Word Study homework pass
    ✮ 15 minutes computer time during MIRP
    ✮ Earn your class 5 minutes of Mad Libs time



    I also had a "fine print" list:

    ✮ Lost or stolen tickets will not be replaced. Write your name on your ticket as soon as you earn one.
    ✮ It is your responsibility to keep track of your tickets and keep them safe.
    ✮ Tickets must be redeemed the day before you want to claim your prize.
    ✮ Tickets earned belong to you. They cannot be given away or traded with anyone for something else.
    ✮ You may be asked to give Miss xxxx a ticket for making a bad choice or for not following the R.O.A.R. rules.
    ✮ Tickets do not expire.
    ✮ Prizes and ticket values may change at any time.
    ✮ Suggestions for prizes must be made in writing.

    I work the clip chart a little differently. I don't have any negative spaces on the chart, only positive. The students start out on the bottom at "Ready to Learn", and have an opportunity to move up four more spots to the top. So I never have the students move their clip down.

    Instead, I have separate consequences if rules are broken. I use the clip chart to focus only on postive behavior. I like to deal with negative behavior privately if at all possible.

    In this way, you will be held accountable for your behavior, but you will still have a chance to redeem yourself by moving up the chart.

    I also give no rewards for moving up the chart. I find that it seems to be a reward in itself to get up there. The children are very competitive about it, which I guess is a good thing (for me anyway, it sure makes my life easier!).
