Clip Chart

This year I will be using a colored “clip chart” to monitor your child’s behavior and classroom choices. Your child will have a clip in theclassroom 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 their behavior choices. The chart below explains how the clip chart works.

Color Description
Yellow (Outstanding!) Students who reach the yellow level will be rewarded for their positive choices.
Neon Green (Great Job!) Students who continue to make positive choices move up to the Neon Green level. They are one step closer to having outstanding classroom behavior!
Red (Good Day!) Students who make positive choices will receive recognition as they move up the chart.
Blue (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.
Purple (Think about it!) Students who receive a warning will move to purple. This serves as a reminder to students to think about the choices they make.
Orange (Captain's Choice!) Students who continue to make poor choices will move to orange and will be given a consequence.
Green (Parent Contacted) Students who move to green will miss recess in its entirety. A parent will be contacted that day if their child is on green.

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. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Sincerely,
Mrs. Karla Lin
