Hello everyone! I want to share something with you that my seven year old suggested we try. Her school used a form of behavior chart to monitor each child behavior throughout the day. So, I took her suggestion and ran with it! My kids like to play and yes they get a little crazy so I thought this was a great idea!
After researching ALOT , and finding different ways to make them, I finally came up with my own thing and I started making it! I grabbed a long piece of carboard (about 24 inches long and 8 inches wide) and index cards and started writing and drawing and coloring.
My final piece included 7 index cards taped going vertically on to the cardboard. The top one in purple with really excited smiley face, next one down in pink with an excited face, next one in blue with a really happy face, next(which is where we start off each day) in green with a happy face, orange with a sad face, yellow with a plain face, and red with a mad face! I used clothes pins with their names on it to move to each face through out the day. If they are in purple they get a special treat and if they're in red, they lose a privilege!
It has worked well so far! I will post a picture of my chart tomorrow!
