You know that really popular one where the kids can clip up or down depending on their behavior? I found that last year, used it, and L.O.V.E.D it! Having a way to reward my kids who always followed the rules was awesome! Not to mention how many time I was able to put my class in check simply by saying, "Jack you may clip up!" Well since I'm going with a pirate theme, I wanted to use the same idea, just with cute pirate sayings/clip art. Here is what I came up with:
Sorry for the HORRIBLE photo! I made this at home tonight, and I had to use my iPhone to take the picture! I used "x's"to separate each color because last year I had SO many kids think they could be sneaky and put their clip halfway in between two colors (hoping I wouldn't know??). Every student will begin on green, and will move up or down the chart depending on behavior.
Broken 3 or more rules. Note home, or office referral.
I created several different backgrounds for these labels because I just COULD NOT make up my mind on what I wanted. So for my file, I left them all in there in case you didn't want to use the colors. These are examples of the different backgrounds to choose from. I just pulled one from each set:

Where Are We? Door Signs:
I've always loved these signs on other teacher's doors that show where their class is. It sure does make it easy for me to track that teacher down! I'm sure you haven't noticed that I'm obsessed with these cute stick kids from scrappindoodles:) I wanted to create signs using those kiddos, so here are the 12 signs I came up with:
I printed them out, cut around the edge, and glued them to card stock. I punched holes in the top so I will be able to put binder rings on them. I'll hang it on the outside of my classroom door, and the cards will be able to flip around easily on the binder rings! I'll assign one of my students the job of changing this whenever we leave the classroom (probably my door holder)!

I hope everyone is still enjoying their summer! I've had a long week of working on things for my classroom...but swimming, splash pads, movies, and family time have definitely been in the mix! Talk to you all very soon!
