Ms. Flanagan's Class Management Plan:
Our classroom employs a clip chart behavior management system. This system promotes positive behavior choices and encourages students to self-monitor their behavior.
How It Works:
-Each student has a clothespin labeled with his/her name, and begins the day clipped to the center of the chart labeled “Ready to Learn.”
-During the course of the day, students have the opportunity to move their clothespin up or down the chart according to their behavioral choices: “clip up” or “clip down.”
-Positive behavior choices allow the student to move his/her clothespin up one level; conversely, inappropriate behavior choices cause the clothespin to move down one level. When a student ends his/her day on Super Student (Purple), a hole punch on his/her Rock Star Behavior Ticket. When students have received 5 hole punches on his/her Rock Star Behavior Ticket, he/she will earn a trip to the treasure chest!
Clip Chart Advantages:
-Students are acknowledged for positive behavior choices.
-Students feel a sense of accomplishment when they make good behavior choices and have the opportunity to clip up.
-Student who have had to clip down always have the opportunity to improve and clip up later in the day, thus they continue to stay motivated to make positive behavior choices.
