Hey ya'll. I recently finished my new behavior system and love it. It is hanging nicely in my room and I think it will be a great thing for my kinders next year. However, I got to wondering - How am I going to record my students' behavior for parents to see? Last year, I just "flipped cards" and gave students a stamp on their calendar for good behavior. If a student turned a card, I would physically write the reason for each child on that specific day. I am looking for something a little easier for me and came up with a behavior log that I think will work well with my new clothespin chart. I have designed it so it will be copied front/back and be used for a month at a time.
Here is my chart:

How many of you all use this clip chart? It's very similar...just different wording.
Well, if you do...I made a log for it, too! Just click the image to grab from google docs.
Typically I keep my students' calendars (or in this case, behavior logs) in their communication folder. I stick it in the left hand side, that says 'Return to School,' and it will stay there for a month.
When the month is up, I remove the calendar...file it away...and replace it with a new one. By filing my students' behavior logs, I am able to pull them for parent/teacher conferences and discuss their progress easily with parents. Whatcha think? Leave me your thoughts, please! I love reading your comments.
P.S. I went to Kohl's yesterday and nearly had a stroke! I spent wayyyy too much money but OMG are the Skippyjon plush adorable! hee hee He's looking mighty cute in my library center. Here's a sneak peek of library. My classroom is certainly coming along!
