Students Taking Ownership of their Behavior

When it comes to behavior management in our classrooms, we are all different.  What works in my classroom might not work in yours. No judgements here.  I've used the "pull card" system since I started teaching.  It's worked for me and it's been fine, but I am ready for a change. I've always loved clip charts because they are cuter...haha! WELL- actually I wanted my students to be accountable for their behavior on more of a personal level and I didn't want it displayed in the classroom for all to see (if you do display it, THAT IS OK! I promise!).  So... I decided to make personal clip charts for my students and I thought I'd share them with you! I used these for the first time last year and let me say- they are AWESOME!  The students liked them and my principal and the parents raved about them.

I have my students keep their personal clip chart UNDER their desks (I use magnet tape on the back with a piece of book tape over it for durability and they magnetize the chart on the bottom of their desks)!  I bought mini clothespins on Amazon but I found that a regular old paperclip does the job!


This personal clip chart will help your students stay accountable for their behavior (all while keeping it personal and not displaying it for all to see). This pack expands past just the clip chart and provides you with a whole behavior plan!

This pack includes:

*Personal Clip Charts (3 versions)- Customizable
*Behavior Report (student)- Full page
*Behavior Report (student)- Half page
*Behavior Report (teacher)- Customizable
*Student Behavior Report Binder Cover
*Red Clip Report Form
*Behavior Plan Note (4 versions)- Customizable
*Behavior Punch Cards

I like the personal clip charts for the students to use. We went to a school wide one this past school year. Ours have 7 colors: from top to bottom: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple,pink. Looks like your personal ones, would not work for me. If it did, I wouldn't mind trying it out.

I got rid of my big clip chart because I hate the personal walk of shame students took to move a clip *AND* the fact that for persistent misbehavior, they just don't work. I'm interested in this idea, but have questions.

1. How to you have the students move the clip? Don't other kids hear you tell them to move them/see the student fumbling under their desk for the chart?

2. How do you keep your students from moving the clips around...moving back up from a bad color or just playing with them in general?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
