I've used a clip chart for a few years and have had great success. Then, I read an post this week about how it can be detrimental to friends with behavior problems etc. and it really got me thinking. I began to question if I was using this tool incorrectly. I came to the conclusion that if it's used well, like any other teaching strategy, it will benefit your classroom environment. So I wanted to share a few tips with you that will make the clip up chart a great addition to your classroom management program.
So…the fun part! I've create a few adorable clip charts for you to use in your classroom! Plus, they come with daily notes that can be sent home to let parents know about their child's day.
Besides how pretty these turned out, I love the notes that come with them. There are 4 to the page and the correspond with each level of the clip chart. At the end of the day, students grab their note to take home to their parents so that their parents know what kind of day they had. You can have them write their name and date it. For friends who made poor choices, you can have them get it signed and return it. You can grab a free copy of the notes by hopping on the Summer Stock Up Free for All
