Good afternoon everyone! Linking up with Head over Heels for Teaching to share something that I am over the moon about already this year...
This is the first year that I decided to try a clip up chart. Now, I know I'm still in the honeymoon stage of our year - just one week down, so many more to go - but it has been so much fun seeing the reactions of having kids "clip up".
|My Technology Clip Chart with numbers by 4th Grade Frolics|
In past years I have always used the colors - green (great), yellow (warning), orange (lose recess), red (lose PAT), and blue (office). This year I kept those same colors but added colors for going the EXTRA mile. Already this past week a couple of kids each day have been able to bump up based on deciding to do extra writing or helping when hadn't been asked. A couple of kids got a little chatty during our practice Read to Self, and instead of stopping everyone, I made mention of a couple of kids that were showing the proper example (they got to clip up) and all of a sudden others were also doing their best.
It's the little things. :)
Since I do have a ton of technology in my classroom, I went with my technology themed clip chart for this year. It's over in my store and has 2 sizes to choose from. Since I use a pocket chart, I use the smaller version.
What else have you been doing in class? Please link up and share!
