What is Working in My Classroom? Find it Here!

Well, I made it through about 2 1/2 weeks of school and things are going SO well. I'm proud of those kiddos. My 1st graders are working hard to learn the expectations and routines. I just wanted to share some things that are working fabulously!

I'm loving these Personal Clip Charts and so are my students!  Plus, they only had zebra striped clothespins at Hobby Lobby so I just *HAD* to get them for my students. ;)

You can check out the WHOLE she-bang {here}!

My student store their behavior punch cards in their pencil box.  If they are on green or purple at the end of the day, they get a hole punch on their card.  Once it's filled up, they get a prize!
{The green facial scrubber is used as a whiteboard eraser and can be found at the Dollar Tree}

Their personal clip charts are kept to the side of their pencil boxes in their desk. They are not allowed to touch them unless I ask them to clip up or down. It's been GREAT so far!

This one is an oldie but a goodie!  In our class we have a VIP each week (much like a Star Student). They get to take home the VIP bag that has Andy (our dog mascot), interactive writing book about Andy, the Me Sack, and an About Me poster. 

Here's what our schedule looks like:

Also, if you would like the labels for the Me Sack, you can download those {here} and the rest of the pack separately {here}.

I've also sent home my students' Take-Home Reading Folders so they can practice, practice, practice. That will make their teacher happy, happy, happy!

ALL that you need to get started on sending books home is available in my Take-Home Reading Folders {Made Easy} Pack!

I like your individual clip chart. Is that item available to edit at all? I just have blue, green, yellow, orange, then red...so I would want to adjust it. I love the idea of doing that. It doesn't waste time with them getting up to move their clip or embarrass the student. I have a star student and a class "pet". I have yet to bring out either one....but really need to this week! I'm starting my reading folder after open house so I can explain to parents the process. It's great to hear what is working in your room! :)

I want to do the individual, but how do you keep them from cheating the system and moving their clip back up?
