    I have used the “typical” clip chart for the past 4 years of the 10 years of my teaching career. Does anyone have any new ideas or strategies? I find myself forgetting to have them move their clips and then I by the end of the day I look and no one has moved 🙁

    Hello abosworth0718,

    Make sure you show excitement for the one you choose. If you can not fake it until you can smile with excitement.

    1. I have a couple of ideas you can use for behavior management. I have used Class Dojo with my home room and my switch class. the students love it because they can select their avatar. The avatars are cool creature like characters. In the Class Dojo you and your students can set the points for positive rewards and consequences. It is electronic. You can use an iPad to click on a student to give a positive point or consequence point. You can decide the number of points for the end of week or end of month reward depending on your selection. The other good thing about the Class Dojo, the parents are able to see when the students are misbehaving and help you in tweaking their child’s behavior. The website is

    2. My students also like receiving table points when they are following all the expectations and rules. I just write the table names on the board and give points as I deem necessary. I give the students a number to obtain by the end of the week in order to travel to the T-Box, treasure box. The table point system insures that the whole table is working together to earn points and follow your rules.

    3. Another behavior management tool I have used are tickets. Cut up construction paper in small strips and sign your initials just in case there are sticky hands. Your signature lets you know if the ticket was earned. Collect tickets and have a weekly drawing selecting 2-4 students or more depending on the size of your T-Box.

    Check out this Blog Post This might be a good alternative.
    I am going to give this idea a try this year and see how it goes. We use PBIS and give out Buff Tickets to our students who demonstrate being Safe, Respectful and Responsible. I would use library pockets (either the chevron or woodland friends) and have them keep their tickets in the pockets. At the end of the week they can redeem their tickets for Fun Friday activities. We are also going to be working on Character Counts this year and each pillar is associated with a color, I might through in tickets to of those colors to hand out when I see Ss showing those characteristics. Hope this helps!
