I am planning on making a stop light behavior chart to manage my classroom this year. I'm thinking each student will have a clip with their name on it that will move to each color if necessary. I have two classes-a.m. and p.m.-so I might make 2 charts unless someone can give me a good idea to do it differently. My question is...HOW do I make this behavior chart? In my son's pre-school they laminated the three circles (green, yellow, red) and then connected each circle by another laminated strip of paper. It seems flimsy when all those clips are hanging on it!! How can I make mine sturdy? Or what other way can I make it? And how should I hang it without it falling to the floor. I'm sure someone has a great idea but none are coming to me! I also need student mailboxes...I can't find cardboard literature sorters any where! The only thing I can find are the expensive ones. Has anyone seen cardboard or inexpensive mailboxes? I am also in need of some ideas for my fine motor center. I'll do cutting, lacing, legos, etc. but does anyone have any clever original ideas? What are your views/ideas on share days/show-n-tell days in K. The kids always want to "show" something to their classmates. Do you do a job chart with assigned jobs for the week? Last year I had weekly helpers that just helped with anything that I needed help with. What do you think? Thanks all.
