I have searched high, I have searched low, but the perfect way to track behavior in my class always seems to be on my mind!
I am not a fan of the traditional card systems. IDK… I tried it one year where they turned their cards to the back but I never really felt as if the kids got the meanings of the colors. So then I moved to the clip system which worked great. I liked how they would see their behavior being lifted up or moved down… until one year I could not seem to purchase go sturdy set of clothes pins!
So I thought to myself… why don’t they just sell a clip chart that’s a pocket chart!
I love this system for so many reasons!
– The kids can move their cards up and down.
– The students name cards can change with the season.
– I can alter what each section says to fit the needs of my students (which I have done.)
So I made it using the pocket charts from the Dollar Spot that I have saved up over the years. I don’t know about you… but I CANNOT pass up a pocket chart for a dollar. At some point I am sure I will need it!
To make it… just trim the sections to be the right size for your (I did not want a huge section for the lower parts because I want to discourage this happening), apply hot glue, and press together!
And there you have it! An amazing little DIY management system for your class!
And if you really think about it… there are so many different ways to use these fun DIY charts… reading groups, centers, and really anything you normally color code!
I always feel like my ideas are so silly and small… hopefully it’s something you can use!
