This year I'm trying the whole clip chart thing. Here are a few photos from when I made it and a really blurry one from my classroom. It's in the front of the room right by the door which I wasn't thrilled about when I set up my room, but it ended working out perfectly.
So far, it's been working out really well for most of my kids (in my experience, you always have a couple who need individualized behavior plans), but once report cards went home, more parents wanted daily notes (whether it was necessary or not), and we simply don't have the time to be filling those out for half the class at the end of the day! Therefore, these documents came to be.
I've been meaning to do something like this all year, but I just didn't get around to it with the preggo exhaustion and all. My sister is my long-term sub for my maternity leave, so it's been super easy on me. We decided it was time to put these puppies into action starting Monday. We'll start out with the weekly one, but the monthly one would save lots of trees, so I may switch to that if all goes well with the weekly ones. Otherwise, I'll just wait until next year! I hope some of you can use these. From what I've seen on all the blogs, LOTS of you are doing clip charts of some sort! Please leave a comment if you download, and let me know what you think!
