Classroom Expectations

    This year we will be using a colored “clip chart” to monitor our behavior and classroom choices.  Your child will have a clip that they will physically move up or down the chart, depending on their choices.  Please keep in mind that your child may not move every single day!  In order to move up, students must go above and beyond in making positive behavior choices.  The chart below explains how the clip chart works. 




    Students who reach the pink level will be rewarded for their positive choices by adding a jewel to their clip and receive a special certificate of recognition. 


    Great Job!

    Students who continue to make positive choices move up to the purple level.  They are one step closer to having outstanding classroom behavior!


    Good Choices!

    Students who make positive choices will receive recognition as they move up the chart. 


    Ready to Learn!

    Everyone starts the day “Ready to Learn”! Students can “clip up” or “clip down” throughout the day depending on their behavior choices. 


    Think About It!

    Students who receive a warning will move to yellow.  This serves as a reminder to students to think about the choices they make.


    Teacher’s Choice!

    Students who continue to make poor choices will move to orange.  This will result in consequences that address the situation.


    Contact Home…

    Students who move to red will complete a behavior reflection log to be signed by a parent.  Parents will be contacted via telephone. 


    I believe that this system will be a positive way for students to monitor their choices and will give them behavior goals to strive for!  As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to call or email me. J
