A New Look For Behavior Management!

Last school year I did a post on my behavior management system. If you missed it and would like to check it out, you can go here. So after a summer of perusing Pinterest, I decided I would give my behavior management system a face lift!
I started using a clip chart this year. I have clothespins with Velcro that I attach the students' names to. I wrote the names on labels, stuck the labels to construction paper, then cut and  laminated. When the students come into speech, they find their name and put it on the green "ready to learn!" section of the chart. If they make good choices, they move up to "good job" or "awesome." If they make bad choices, their name moves down to "slow down" or "stop." If their name is in green, blue, or purple by the end of the session, they get to put their name in the "Spotted Using Good Speech" fishbowl! 
To download the clip chart check out Mrs. Rica's Kindergarten Blog!

I'm sure many of you have seen the "caught being good" fishbowl on Pinterest. I adapted the idea and created a "Spotted Using Good Speech" fishbowl (I really liked the fishbowl!) I added polka dots for my spots. At the end of the session, the students have the chance to put their names into the bowl 1-3 times depending on where their name ends up on the clip chart (green=1, blue=2, purple=3). Click here to download my spotted paper! Once the fishbowl fills up, I will pick 5 names out and those students get to go to the treasure box. I use this for all my groups and I explained to them that many names will be in the bowl, so it is important to get your name in the bowl as many times as you can. So far it is working great... I'll keep you posted! :)
