Classroom Management

Traffic Light Clip Chart
One way to monitor individual student behavior is through the clip chart. Each day, students begin with their clip on green. Green symbolizes students who follow our classroom rules, school expectations, and six pillars. However, if students receive 3 warnings for not following anyone of the rules, expectations or pillars, he/she will move their pin to yellow. Yellow alerts students of their behavior and gives them the opportunity to reflect and change their actions. Unfortunately, sometimes students continue their misbehavior which results in moving their pin to red. Red tells students that their actions will result in negative consequences such as a referral to the office and/or contact with parents. At the end of the day, students color in their behavior chart to show their parents how their behavior was that day.
