Welcome! In every classroom it is vital to establish a clear and productive classroom management plan in order to create an effective learning environment. In our class we use a behavior clip chart. The philosophy behind the clip chart is to teach students to be self managers of their behavior. It also encourages a growth mindset. One bad choice does not ruin the day. There are many opportunities to change your mindset throughout the day.
Here is how it works. Each child has a clip on the clip chart. Each morning, the clips start on “Ready to Learn” or green. Throughout the day, students may need to move their clip down for poor choices. Good choices are rewarded through Class Dojo.
At the end of each day, the clip chart is reset. If your child has reached Parent Contact, I will be contacting you that evening. These charts help us to communicate regarding behavior and allow us to work together to encourage your child to make positive choices. I look forward to partnering with you this year!
